The third page shows the critical lots with topography lines.  Mr. Morrison recommended that only sheets #1 and #2 be recorded since topo lines would likely be confusing to the general public.  There was extensive discussion about whether potential homeowners would be aware prior to purchase about buildable area limitations.  Commissioner Patrick pointed out that the notes added to the final plat do not satisfy the prior condition placed by the Planning Commission when the preliminary plat was approved in 2015.  That condition stated that “language must be written into the restrictive covenants indicating non-buildable area so residents will know the precise building envelopes.” Other questions from the commission included the size of the houses that could fit on small building envelopes and street lights.
