D.  Benington Section 6 Revised Preliminary Plat and Variance Request

Bill Kottas represented the developer, Grove Park Development.  Jason Patrick, of 1516 Pumpkin Ridge Court and Joan Lawler of 1540 Pumpkin Ridge Court represented the Homeowners of Benington.  Mr. Kottas opened with a presentation on a “natural park” proposed for the area requested for variance.

After some discussion of the proposed park and requirements for a variance, Commissioners Haines and Radley stated they could not support the variance request because they did not feel the application met the criteria for granting a variance.  Chairman Owens and Mayor Alexander supported the request for variance.  Attorney Bob Notestine pointed out that if the commission was in favor of granting a variance, a motion must be made stating how the application meets all the criteria. 

After a lengthy debate with many questions, Mr. Kottas requested a deferral on the request.  Commissioner Walden requested feedback on the proposed revisions from residents of Winterset Woods, and Commissioner Haines requested additional material showing both subdivisions and the connectivity between Winterset Woods and Benington.

Chairman Owens made a motion to defer the application for 30 days.  Commissioner Haines seconded, and the deferral was granted.
