Sarpy County Planning and Zoning Coordinator, Ken Tex, Deputy County Attorney, Tamra Walz and Recording Secretary, Cindy Gilbert were present.

Ballot: Ayes - Buller, Meyer, Nichols, Carcich, and Lindner. Nays - none. Abstain - Krzywicki. Absent - none. Motion carried.

Notice of this meeting and the applications to be heard, were published in the Bellevue Leader. Notice of the meeting and the agenda, were sent to all members of the Sarpy County/LaVista Urbanizing Area Planning Commission and the applicants.

Marvin Carcich then asked Ken Tex if anything had changed with Millard Park as far as the sewer was concerned.

Ken indicated that Millard Park would not be running a line to connect into the industrial sewer. Gretna has come forward and said that they were building a sewer line from 152nd to the City of Gretna. The first leg of this line will go from 152nd Street to 168th Street. The parties involved in this project are LaVista, Gretna, Sarpy County, engineers and the City of Omaha. They have created maps that show the allotted acres for each entity. Ken also stated that the Millard Park areas will request to hook to this new line.

REGULAR AGENDA ITEMS:

1. Dodge Land Company, 8701 West Dodge Road, Omaha, Nebraska, requests approval of a change of zone from AG to RS-72 on the following described property, to wit: The SW1/4 of Sec. 15, Twp. 14N, Rng. 11E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (168th & Giles Road)

Bob McKee, Lamp, Rynearson & Associates, representing Dodge Land Company, explained that this is a continuation of Millard Park. This phase, as well as the other one being presented this evening, are located south of the railroad tracks. The rest of Millard Park is located on the north side of the tracks. When questioned about being so close to the tracks, he responded by saying that those lots in Millard Park were some of the first lots to sell.

Read into record was a letter from LaVista=s City Administrator, Cara Pavlicek, indicating a concern over the lack of park ground. She further stated that the City of LaVista currently utilizes a national planning standard, which supports a requirement that new subdivisions plat 2.5 acres of park ground per 1,000 people. It was her request to the Urbanizing Area Planning Commission that they consider the need for approximately 10 acres of park ground as a part of the preliminary plat review.

Comments by Tom Lynam were noted for the S.I.D. to install sidewalks along Giles Road when needed and participation in road improvements on Giles Road.

Bob McKee responded by saying that they had already been in touch with Tom Lynam and the Planning Department and they had agreed to comply with those requests.

Mike Krzywicki then asked for information on existing zoning in the area, particularly commercial.

Ken Tex showed a map he had prepared with the locations of the general business in the area and included the approximate amount of acreage with each location.

Denny Nichols re-addressed the park issue. He asked if there was quite a bit of open space to the north.

Bob McKee stated that Millard Park has 44.3 acres of trails, parks and green space. There are private soccer fields in the area as well. The nearest park is within walking distance from the Millard Park area.

It was then decided to read all agenda items and discuss them as a whole unit and finally vote on them individually.

Dodge Land Company, 8701 West Dodge Road, Omaha, Nebraska, requests approval of a preliminary plat on a subdivision to be known as Millard Park South on the following described property, to wit: The SW1/4 of Sec. 15, Twp. 14N, Rng. 11E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska.
