1998-11 Planning Commission Meeting Minutes
NOVEMBER 13, 1998

The meeting was called to order by Chairman, Rob Pease at 7:03 p.m.

The pledge and prayer was led by Rob Pease.

Those in attendance were: Rob Pease, Joe Rositano, Charles Knapper, Lester Hitt, Frank Wilson, Larry Felts, Orville Norton, Yvonne McCurley, Mike Wood, Mike Delvizis.

The minutes from the October 13, 1998 meeting were passed unanimously after a motion was made by Larry Felts followed with a second by Frank Wilson.

The minutes from October 29, 1998 were approved by unanimous vote. Motion was made by Charles Knapper and seconded by Larry Felts.

It was decided to defer Jim Hindman’s speech until later in the meeting. He was expected to arrive soon.

The next item on the agenda was to approve a Major Road Plan. However, Mike Wood noted that a public hearing must be held before it could be adopted. Charles Knapper made a motion that recommended putting this item on the next agenda after publicizing it in the paper. This motion passed unanimously after being seconded by Joe Rositano.

There was a handout from Aldermen Henry distributed to the Planning Commission regarding suggested changes to the newly adopted Zoning Ordinance. This item was not on the agenda but Chairman Rob Pease made mention of it by posing a question to Jim Finley, “Do you have any comments about the handout from Alderman Henry?” Jim Finley answered, “No, I do not.” The handout was not looked over.

Item number 8: The zoning map was already adopted and didn’t need to be on agenda.

Item number 9: Changes to the Sub Regs are noted in each person’s copy and will be voted on at one time when all the changes are completed. Rob Pease gave a handout with the changes he is suggesting.

7:46 Jim Hindman arrived with Rick Fisher. Frank Wilson suggested that the planning commission hear Mr. Hindman at this time. Jim Hindman explained the purpose and challenges presented to the Nolensville Growth Planning Committee and assured the Planning Commission that the Town’s best interest was being evaluated by the committee. At this point NGPC is collecting data in order to educate themselves in being able to responsibly project the impact of external growth and the effects it may have on Nolensville. He stated that in no way would NGPC go against the Planning Commission in any endeavor but that they would work together in cooperation with one another. Discussion was brought forward about re-visiting the Town’s Comprehensive Plan now that we have a Growth Planning Committee doing such extensive studies in gathering such valuable data. Mayor Knapper says that Planning Commission will have input at public hearing before NGPC makes their recommendation to Mayor and Board of Aldermen or to the county. Planning Commission members commended the NGPC for their gracious efforts so far. Planning Commission agreed that they need to look at expanding Nolensville for our own protection. Jim Hindman answered questions and there was more discussion about Growth Planning.

A break was taken from 8:45-8:55 p.m.

Revision to the Sub Regs resumed again.

Charles Knapper moved for adjournment at 9:30 p.m. Joe Rositano seconded and the meeting adjourned with a unanimous vote at that time.

Minutes from September 24, 1998 public hearing were adopted with a motion made by Frank Wilson and a second by Larry Felts. Passed unanimously.

There were no announcements.

Review of the Preliminary Plat by McFarlin Woods Section 4, 5, and 6 was postponed until later in the meeting due to lack of representation by the applicant and lack of corrected plans being submitted to the town engineer by the date of this meeting. The thinking at this time is that the applicant may arrive later on in the meeting. However, a motion was made by Orville Norton to require from now on that the applicant be present at the planning commission meeting in order for any action other than a deferral to be taken on any preliminary plat or final plat. Second was made by Paula Auerbach. The motion passed unanimously.

Yvonne McCurley will contact town counsel Bob Notestine to ask questions about deferring an action. (Section III-4, 8 and 9f.) and bonding requirements in III-9i and Section IV as it relates to securing performance bonds.

Mike Delvizis will check on road surfaces and time limits concerning when top surface must be laid. We want to limit the town’s liability to maintain the roads until 80% build out is reached.

We will start with Section V at the next planning commission meeting to revise the sub regs.

A motion was made by Frank Wilson to defer any action on the preliminary plat submitted by McFarlin Woods at this meeting due to lack of representation by the applicant and the Town not having in hand the revisions to the preliminary plans as were requested by fax on Sept 25, 1998. Paula Auerbach seconded and the motion passed unanimously. Mike Delvizis asked Yvonne McCurley to contact the applicant to tell them to get the changes on the preliminary plat to town hall before the next meeting.

Motion to adjourn was made by Paula Auerbach. Second by Larry Felts. Meeting adjourned at 9:22 p.m.

There was some discussion on the preparation of a draft document with the recommended changes to the Zoning Ordinance. A draft copy will be given to the Planning Commission members before the next Planning Commission meeting to look over. Members will be ready to discuss any final changes at the next regular Planning Commission meeting in September. Then a public hearing will be held to recommend the changes to the Board. An ad must be placed 10 days prior to the public hearing.
The Zoning Map needs to be made official. Mike Wood will take care of getting the signature blanks on the map.
There was discussion on Open Space Overlay. Mike Wood will make changes to recommend requirements for overlay. Yvonne McCurley will see to obtaining aerial photos from Bob Martin at Franklin Planning Department.
There was discussion about underground utilities.. Some members raised a question about whether or not the Town would be required to eventually put in underground utilities on existing properties if the Zoning Ordinance required all new construction to have underground utilities. Mike Wood warned that legal counsel should be sought before any decision is made on this and agreed to confer with Counsel Notestine about the matter. A formal vote was then taken in which five (5) were in favor, Frank Wilson opposed, Paula Auerbach abstained. Joe Rositano vehemently refused to vote and objected to there having been a vote taken without first hearing from Legal Counsel.

MARCH 3, 1998

The meeting was called to order by Chairman of the Planning Commission, Rob Pease at 7:06 PM.
Those present at the time the meeting was called to order were as follows:
Staff: Jim Finley, Yvonne McCurley, Mike Wood, and Mayor Charles Knapper.
Planning Commission: Orville Norton, Larry Felts, Frank Wilson, Tommy Dugger, Paula Auerback, Joe Rositano.
Alderman Henry was present.
Phil Jones was present.
It was advertised in the paper that there would be discussion on the Sign Ordinance 89-07 but there was a miscommunication between staff members and the copies of the ordinance were not ready to be distributed. Orville Norton moved to defer discussion. Joe Rositano seconded. All were in favor but Frank Wilson who opposed saying that this did not need to be put off any longer. A copy of the sign ordinance will be distributed before the March 12th Planning Commission meeting.
Public comment by Phil Jones was made stating that the fee of $100 was too much to pay for a copy of the Zoning Ordinance/Sub Regs. Especially since it is not available for checkout and must be viewed in the Town Hall only. The Planning Commission and BZA obtained free copies but the public did not. Rob Pease agreed that it was too high. Orville suggested having a copy placed at the Public Library to be checked out by citizens. Mike Wood suggested reducing the fee. Mayor Knapper stated that he was embarrassed by the excessive fee and said it would be changed to $35-40 per copy by a new ordinance.
Mike Delvizis, Evelyn Bennett and Rick Owens arrived at 7:21.
Changes were discussed on sections I-III. The agreed upon changes were marked in each person’s individual copy of the Sub. Regs. The copies marked by Mike Wood and Yvonne McCurley will be compared and deemed as the official copy from which to input data for the revised copy of Sub/Regs.
At 8:47, Mayor Knapper requested a break in the action regarding Sub. Regs. Discussion due to the lateness of the hour and mentioned that copies of the Sign Ordinance 98-07 were now ready to be given out if discussion on it was desired at this time rather than waiting until next meeting. Joe Rositano made a motion to go ahead and do the Sign Ordinance now. Tommy Dugger seconded. Passed unanimously and a 10 minute break was given to assure that everyone had time to look over the Ordinance.
9:00 Discussion on the Sign Ordinance was opened by Orville Norton.
9:08 Mike Delvizis left the meeting saying that he would give his comments and recommendations to Yvonne McCurley and Mike Wood.
Alderman Parman Henry read Sign Ordinance 98-07 and expressed his comments that a 10 ft. height limit be imposed to all signs in Nolensville and that internally lit signs be allowed in the Commercial and Industrial Districts of Nolensville. Much discussion was made and many opinions were voiced but Rick Owens moved that Sign Ordinance 98-07 presented by the Mayor and Alderman was an unfavorable motion. Larry Felts seconded. All ayes but Frank Wilson who voted no.
Joe Rositano moved that a recommendation be made to change the Zoning Ordinance to limit sign height to 6 ft in the Commercial/Industrial District. Orville Norton seconded. The motion passed 6-3 with Paula Auerbach, Frank Wilson and Rick Owens opposing.
