President Don Ashley opened the meeting:


COMMENTS:  Rick Coppock stated Kevin Farris, who is on the board, is looking at purchasing property just north of his property and he doesn’t want to buy it and voluntarily annex it into the Town if the board has a problem with it.  He would like to have the board’s opinion on this.  He would like a letter or something from the Plan Commission.  Kevin showed the board plans for this property.  This will be subdivided and this part will be annexed with a C-3 zone.  Diana asked if this would be like he has now.  He said yes.  A long discussion was held.  Rick stated that if we draft a letter of approval, then he doesn’t have to come before the board again before December.  President Don Ashley asked if the board approved of the letter.  All said yes.  Pat made the motion.  Diana seconded it.  Motion carried 5-0 with Kevin abstaining from voting.




NEW BUSINESS: Rick stated that this is a continuation of the previous approved subdivision by Kenton Robinson, 19 lots off of Greenbriar Knolls, adjacent to section 3 and 4.  This is a little eagle type of cul-de-sac.  The streets, water and sewer are in.  The only thing not in this is the sidewalks and street trees.  There is also a covenant that states the sidewalks are put in before anyone can build a house or move in.  I would like to get this passed tonight so it can go before the Town Council on Tuesday night.  Geraldine asked if Jim Ragle has looked at the streets.  Rick said Jim usually does this before the Council meeting.  Don Ashley asked about another way out, Rick said yes.  Also the next part will come out on Deer Run.  A long discussion was held.  President Don asked for a motion.  Diana made the motion to approve Greenbriar Knolls, Section 5 final plat.  Pat seconded it.  Motion carried 6-0.


COMMENTS:  Diana stated that we have a request to move the Plan Commission meetings to the 1st Thursday of every month at 7:00 p. m. This will take a vote.  Diana made the motion.  Pat seconded it.  Motion carried 6-0.


ADJOURNMENT:  Diana made the motion to adjourn.  Geraldine seconded it.  Motion Passed 6-0.
