(168th Street, 2 mile north of Giles)

Jeff Elliott, E & A Consulting Group, Inc., represented Chuck and Marci Zegers. He requested approval of the Final Plat for the subdivision Cedar Hollow. He indicated the temporary turnaround in the cul-de-sac would meet the minimum standards required for cul-de-sacs. He addressed the concerns of the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resource District (NRD). 1) Mr. Elliott said that the permanent easement will be granted to the SID. 2 & 3) Mr. Elliott indicated that an analysis had been performed and the only tract of land in that subdivision that is in the flood plain is an outlot, alleviating the need to delineate the Zone A flood plain designation on the final plat, and 4) storm drain systems will be sent to the NRD when they are designed.

Cindy Gilbert read into record the comments by the Gretna Fire Chief.

The questioned was raised concerning the storm drain systems not being approved by the NRD yet.

Ken Tex explained that those systems are not generally designed ahead of time because of the cost. They are typically sent to the County Engineer and the NRD after the Final Plat has been approved. He indicated they didn't need to be a part of the Planning Commission's recommendation since they will be taken care of by the County Engineer.

Discussion was held concerning the fire hydrant spacing of 300' - 350' by the Gretna Fire Chief and M.U.D.'s standards. Ken Tex suggested that the spacing be no more than 450' as recommended by the Fire Chief Committee.

It was agreed by Jeff Elliott to abide by that request.

(3) Wear moved, seconded by Wees to recommend approval of the Final Plat for Cedar Hollow as it meets the zoning regulations with the stipulation that the NRD's requests are met, the temporary turn around meets standard cul-de-sac requirements and the hydrant spacing meets M.U.D. standards. Ballot: Ayes - Denny, Fenster, Johnson, LaBart, Wees and Wear. Nays - Buethe. Abstain - none. Absent - Buller, Matthies and Nichols. Motion carried.

(171st & Emiline)

Doug Dreessen, Thompson, Dreessen & Dorner, Inc., represented Harrison Woods. He stated that 171st Street is no longer a connecting street from the residential area to the commercial. It is now a walkway. He indicated the drainage way was being disrupted as well as the nature trail.

After a brief discussion with Ken Tex, he also concurred with Ken that leaving the road there would create additional traffic within the subdivision from Hickory Ridge residents.

It was agreed that the bulk of the traffic should stay on the main thoroughfares instead of the residential streets.

(4) Fenster moved, seconded by LaBart to recommend approval of Harrison Woods Replat I as it meets the comp plan and conforms to the Preliminary/Final Plat with the exception of 171st Street being a public access to the commercial area of Harrison Woods.

8. Sarpy County Planning Commission will consider delegating its authority to review and comment on proposed subdivision plats for cities of the first and second class pursuant to Nebraska State Statutes '' 16-902 and 17-1002.

Ken Tex explained that according to Nebraska State Statute, cities of the first and second class are required to submit subdivision plats, located within their extra territorial jurisdiction, to the County Planning Commission for review and comment. He stated that the county's interest lies more in infrastructure and sewer connection fees than the layout and design of the subdivision. He indicated he would be conferring with Mark Wayne, Brian Hanson and Tom Lynam on these plats. Ken asked that the Planning Commission delegate its authority to review these plans to the County Planning & Building Department. He indicated he did not want to hold up the developers since the Planning Commission only meets once a month.

Tamra Walz was asked if this was legal to do. She stated that there was no reason why it can't be done this way.
