VII. Preliminary Plat
A. S/D 2011-01 – The Engstrand Subdivision was tabled from the May meeting and Chairman Wolf called on Subdivision Administrator Morlan to help answer questions that were brought up at the May meeting regarding the driveway access to the rear lot. Morlan explained that the driveway issue is not something that needs to be addressed in the platting approval process. It would be addressed when a zoning permit was applied for. The lot does exceed the depth rule of not more than 2½ times deep as it is wide, and in this layout the rear lot is a flag lot, which should be avoided if possible. Morlan stated he felt this was the only practical way to subdivide this property into two lots.
Carlos Cervantes representing Mr. Engstrand answered a few further questions concerning the storm shelter removal. Morlan reiterated the need for the removal of the storm shelter before the plat would be signed by the Commission due to it being in a utility easement.
Having reviewed the preliminary plat for the Engstrand Subdivision filed as S/D 2011-01, I Bill Moss, move that we approve the plat subject to condition:
1. The storm shelter identified to be removed must be removed from the property prior to the signing of plat by the Planning Commission or City Council.
Oscar Thomison seconded the motion. Vote Aye:3, opposed; 1 Dan Clark. Motion carried.
B. S/D 2011-02 – The Albin Estates Subdivision was submitted for approval May 12, 2011. The preliminary and final plats were submitted for approval at the same time. The property is located at 511 S. Oliver. It consists of 6.53 acres and is zoned A-1 Agricultural; it will be used as Single family residential, which is a permitted use in this district. It will be connected to City services/utilities. The property did require and get FEMA approval (Case # 11-07-0746A, dated March 17, 2011) to have 1.59 acres removed from the Floodway. The Sedgwick County Fire Department has approved the plat with some leveling of low spots for the driveway enabling fire trucks access.
Applicant John Albin discussed with the Commission his plan for the driveway and had with him a sample of the crushed concrete he is wanting to use; it will be a compact dustless driveway able to support the weight of fire trucks. He answered questions from Commission. Will Clevenger discussed with the Commission the driveway access width and the approach that will be concrete.
Having reviewed the preliminary plat for the Albin Estates Subdivision filed as S/D 2011-02, I Dan Clark, move that we approve the plat. Motion seconded by Bill Moss, and passed unanimously by a vote of
