February 1, 2001



The Ellettsville, Indiana Plan Commission met in regular session at 7:00PM, Thursday, February 1, 2001.  Members present were Kevin Farris- President, Terry Baker, Frank Buczolich, Geraldine McIntyre, and David Drake.  Sandra Hash and William Evans were absent, and David Drake acted as the Secretary in Evans’ absence.  Rick Coppock, Town Engineer was also present.


Mr. Farris called the meeting to order.





Geraldine McIntyre welcomed David Drake back to the Plan Commission.  Drake was appointed to replace David Sorokoty as the Town Council’s second representative on the Plan Commission.    










Melvin Sutherlin requested an extension on his preliminary plat for Deerfield Addition on Thomas Road.  Terry Baker made a motion that the extension be approved for another 6 months, and McIntyre seconded the motion.  The motion was approved with a vote of 5-0.


Rick Coppock presented a letter from CFC, Inc. requesting a clarification on the zoning of a parcel of land just west of Deer Park Drive and SR46.  Apparently the Town annexed this piece of property in 1973, but the Town has never specifically designated the zoning for it.  At the time that it was annexed, the property was zoned General Business by Monroe County.  Coppock stated that the Town’s C-1 zone would be equivalent to the County’s General Business zone.  McIntyre made a motion authorizing the President of the Plan Commission to send a letter to CFC, Inc. advising them that the Plan Commission’s opinion was that this property was zoned C-1, carrying over the business zoning covering it at the time it was annexed.  Drake seconded the motion.  The motion was approved with a vote of 4-0.  Terry Baker abstained from voting since Cook Incorporated, which is affiliated with CFC, employs him.




McIntyre made a motion that the January 4, 2001 minutes be approved.  Baker seconded the motion.  The motion was approved with a vote of 5-0.




L.D. Axsom, of the Ellettsville United Pentecostal Church on Vine Street, spoke to the Plan Commission about the Church’s property.  He wanted to know if the Town would be interested in the property for use as a park.  Apparently the Church is considering expanding their facilities, but since their property is in a flood plain, they would probably not be able to do so at the current location.   Mr. Farris suggested that Axsom attend the next meeting of the Main Street Committee and discuss the possibilities with them.





McIntyre made a motion for adjournment, seconded by Baker.  The motion was approved with a vote of 5-0.
