Don Meyer read into record the comments from Tom Lynam, County Surveyor.

Mr. Brown said they would meet the Surveyor's requirements.

Scott Brown introduced the architect for the project, Randy Brown, who said that their reason for the 20' setback was to create more of a community effect, like the Dundee area of Omaha. He indicated that with the houses sitting closer to the road, traffic tends to move slower through the neighborhood.

Charles Buller voiced his concern about more cars being parked on the street with shorter driveways and didn't think it would slow traffic at all.

More discussion ensued regarding the PD (Planned Development) status, particularly the 20' setback.

Cindy Gilbert read into record the letter from the NRD.

Rod Buethe, Gretna Fire Chief, expressed his concern about only one exit in regard to emergency services. He also stated he thought the streets should intersect more often so that emergency vehicles don't have as far to go to turn around if they should have trouble finding the house they are looking for.

Don Meyer asked Rod Buethe to put his concerns in writing.

Randy Sump asked if there were any plans in the near future to make improvements to 192nd Street.

Ken Tex indicated that the County Highway Department would share equally with the owners on both sides of the road when the time comes. Those requirements are usually written into the subdivision agreements.

After more general discussion,

Buller moved, seconded by Denny to recommend approval of the change of zone from AG to RD-50, RS-72 and BG, (not allowing the PD (Planned Development) portion of the zone change) as it complies with the comp plan.
