3. CITIZEN COMMENTS: None.
4. CORRESPONDENCE: None.
5. DISCUSSION/ACTION ITEMS:
A. Crestview Golf Club Planned Development, Phase 1 - Request for Final Approval: City Planner Lewis indicated that this request was slightly unusual, as the streets and utilities would normally be part of the final approval process. However, in this case, the streets and utilities were already installed and approved as part of the original plat, so the only issue was the creation of five tax lots. He noted that the plan had been reviewed to ensure that it was in conformance with the preliminary plan approval, which it was. Commissioner Stole expressed concerns regarding fire safety and the proximity of houses to one another, and Mr. Lewis responded that the plans had been reviewed and approved by both the Fire District and Lincoln County Planning. Additionally, the builder had consulted with the County's building official to ensure compliance. Commissioner Quayle commented favorably on the number and size of the hydrants available, and stated that there was certainly adequate water pressure due to the Crestview Hills School infrastructure. Commissioner Barham noted the emergency exit language in the preliminary application, which was not mentioned in this phase of the development but which may be included in subsequent phases. It was also mentioned that storm drainage would be addressed at the time that building permit applications are submitted, and those plans would be reviewed by the Public Works Department for compliance with water, sewer and storm drainage. Following further discussion Commissioner Peterson moved to approve Phase 1. Commissioner Quayle seconded, and the motion carried unanimously.
B. Planning Report: None.
C. Other Issues: None.
6. COMMISSIONER COMMENTS & CONCERNS: Commissioner Barham suggested that findings from public hearings be posted on the City's website. Staff will explore the idea.
7. ADJOURNMENT: At 2:38 p.m., there being no further business to come before the Commission, the meeting was adjourned.
