A.    Sherwood Green Estates Final PUD Plan & Preliminary Plats Phase 1 and Phase 2

Joe Epps from Anderson, Delk and Epps represented the applicant.  Commissioner Robert Haines asked about the plan to accommodate foot traffic between the Sherwood Green Estates and Nolensville Elementary School.  Mr. Epps said the applicant agreed to supply a walking trail and sidewalk up to the split median entrance to the school.  The Trees and Trails Committee previously offered to negotiate a sidewalk on the school property with Williamson County Schools.  Mayor Alexander said he had been present for a discussion with the School Board and believed there was indeed some level of acceptance by school board representatives on this plan.  Mr. Epps said the cross walk would be marked.  Vice Chairman Radley made a motion to approve Final PUD Plan and Preliminary Plats for Sherwood Green Estates Phases 1 and 2 with the following conditions:

• Applicant must accept and respond adequately to storm water management comments from Tom Allen

• The second sentence in Note 24 regarding insurance for the nature trail planned for the public access easement should be removed from plans for Phase 1 and Phase 2.

• Appropriate trees will be planted behind lots 15, 16 and 17.  Tree selections will be approved by Town Staff.

Mr. Epps agreed to the conditions and said he had a meeting scheduled with Tom Allen on Friday at 10:00 a.m. to discuss his comments.  Mayor Alexander seconded the motion, which passed unanimously. 

B.  Addition to Brittain Downs, Preliminary Plat Phase 2

Henry Laird prefaced the item by saying this project will include installation of rain gardens, which are not required by the Town.  There had been an outstanding question about who would be responsible for maintaining the rain gardens.  The attorney for the applicant worked with the Town Attorney Bob Notestine on an amendment of the restrictive covenants to indicate homeowners will be responsible for the rain garden maintenance.  If they are not maintained, the HOA will assume responsibility for maintenance and can be inspected by the Town if desired. 

Commissioner Haines made a motion to approve the Addition to Brittain Downs, Preliminary Plat Phase 2.  Commissioner Andrew Grosson seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.

C. Annexation Request from CPS on Burkitt South Project; Lancaster and Himebaugh Property

Vice Chairman Radley made a motion for approval of the Plan of Services for the annexation request.  Commissioner Ashlee Walden seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

7.  OLD BUSINESS 

A. Report from last BOMA meeting

Henry Laird reported that in June, BOMA held a public hearing on the zoning text amendment permitting retail package liquor sales in certain districts.  The Board heard a final reading on this item and then approved the zoning text amendment.  A public hearing was also held on an amendment to the Zoning Map and application of a PUD overlay for the Addition to Burkitt Village.  A final reading was heard and BOMA then approved the Zoning Map amendment and overlay.  A resolution was passed to accept the streets and related improvements to McFarlin Woods 5 – 6. 

8.  BONDS 

A.  Bond Report

Vice Chairman Radley made a motion to approve the bond report as presented.  Commissioner Haines seconded, and the bond report was approved unanimously.

9.  OTHER

Vice Chairman Radley said the only other issue mentioned in the packet is a newspaper article reiterating the State of Tennessee’s requirement that Planning Commissioners file a financial disclosure statement.

Mayor Alexander also reminded the Planning Commission the July BOMA meeting had been cancelled, as the scheduled meeting date was on the July 4th holiday. He invited everyone to attend the Town’s Annual Independence Day Celebration.
