PUBLIC GENERAL COMMENT PERIOD:
Scott Good here about development plan discussed at last meeting. Mr.Cortese surveyor and Planning Commission member asked about the trust indenture for PRD. Mr.Barbin had looked at our zoning ordinance and Mr. Good was given a copy of what Mr.Barbin had found that pertained to his proposal. Mr.Barbin said the trust indenture is basically a deed that includes conditions. He also commented on the 7200 sq. feet per acre needed in an R-3 district. Mr. Good showed a preliminary drawing/map and said he would have 30 acres. Discussion continued with Mr.Barbin saying what is needed according to zoning ordinance; open space, lot area, yard sq. feet,etc. Mr.Barbin said the engineer will review all these and make sure they are checked off on list. Mr.Sewalk Eads Group engineer said they would go off checklist and make sure it meets requirements. Mr. Good said he had already talked to engineer about stormwater, having pits for each unit, crowns/swells in road; Mr. Gdula asked about outflow. Mr.Barbin said that Mr. Good would still need to follow max density and other underlying rules for the R-3 zoning district; if he has any questions can talk to him or Mr.Cortese. Mr.Cortese and Mr.Sewalk both said next step would be sketch plan with drawing that meets requirements. Mr.Barbin cautioned Mr. Good that for PRD that you cannot sell these individually …it goes on deed; also, for 55 + community has special rights under federal law.
Mr. Bob Cooper here to thank Mr.Senft for coming out and looking at what could be done for his water/stormwater drainage/runoff issues on Adams Drive.; and that hopefully it helps. Mr.Senft said he went and looked at and they have a plan; still need to contact his neighbors; are working on it.
Mr. Richards stated with no other township business to conduct he would entertain a motion to adjourn. Mr. Senft made the motion, second by Mr. Bucci. With all in favor, motion passed, and the meeting adjourned at 5:20 PM.
