Mr. Hugh Hallums is requesting the rezoning of his property located at 4553 Martins Chapel Road from AG to RA. This property includes 1.05 acres. Mr. Collins addresses his comments and suggests that once this is rezoned it be subdivided. Once this has been done then a final plat should be done of the lots. A motion to rezone as requested and recommend to the board was made by Vice Chairman Osborne and this was seconded by Alderman Gill. The motion passes unanimously. Mrs. Sherry Denny is requesting final plat approval of her property located at 2075 Erell Dowlen Road. This property includes 8.51 acres. The board discusses this request in great detail. Steven Artz representative presents revised plat to the board. Mayor Crosby addresses an existing water line that is in place but has not been addressed on the plat. Mr. Mayo addresses his questions to surveyor suggesting that we have Mr. Stringer add the soil marks onto the plat. Mr. Collins states that his comments have been addressed in the revised plat. Chairman Niec also asks to have a letter or notation made on the plat addressing the soil marks. Alderman Ruth suggests asking Mr. Stringer to notate all future unrestricted plats so that this is not an issue anymore. Artz surveyors withdraw this request until they can address all of the comments that have been brought forth. Mr. William B. Shaw is requesting final plat approval of his property located at 1949 Erell Dowlen Road. This property includes 5.05 acres. This case was dropped from the agenda per Steven Artz request. Mrs. Tammy Jo Garza is requesting final plat approval of her property located at 2547 Jack Teasley Road. This property includes 5.10 acres. The board discusses the request and a motion is made by Alderman Gill to approve this based on the fact that the mayor would review this before any building was done. A second is made by Vice Chairman Osborne. The motion passes unanimously.
