Meeting Called to Order
Chairman Tilley called the meeting to order at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, August 4, 2004 in the Town Hall Boardroom.
Approval or Correction of Minutes
The PUD would be required to meet the setbacks for the district and would need a 20 feet separation between each structure. Density is an important factor as well as a home owners association (HOA) being in place to maintain the common areas. The property owner only owns the footprint of the structure. Erase
It appears that the Campbell Creek Properties Development may have some problems because of the watershed area. Four lots with a road and cul-de-sac was approved but the guidelines require the developer to submit plans for the entire subdivision with a sewer tap at each lot. The Campbell Creek Properties is a major subdivision. Erase
Corrections noted the following motion was made:
MR. CASE MADE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE MINUTES OF AUGUST 4, 2004 WITH CORRECTION MADE.
MR. ZERBOCK SECONDED THE MOTION.
Finalizing the Proposed Zoning of Campbell Creek
Chairman Tilley introduced Mr. Kevin Byrd. Mr. Byrd will be working in planning and zoning as an intern. Mr. Byrdís education in planning will be a great asset to the planning board.
The board members, Mr. Byrd, and Mr. Moser reviewed a map of the watershed area within the Campbell Creek area.
After reviewing the map, the board determined that the area around the critical watershed areas and Sanitary Districtís water intake should be zoned Residential 1, Stoney Ridge is considered a planned unit development, and Crocket Meadows is zoned Residential 3. The watershed areas within the county must follow county guidelines. There were some concerns about the residential 1 area abutting residential 3 zoning.
The board discussed if there would be a conflict of interest since Mr. Case lives within the area. A conflict of interest would be if someone made a financial gain from a decision made. Mr. Case would have no financial gain and was in favor of establishing the largest zoning district within the watershed area.
After further discussion, the areas for zoning were designated.
MR. BREDE MADE A MOTION TO PRESENT THE ZONING OF THE CAMPBELL CREEK / ROCKY TOP AREA AS DISCUSSED.
MR. CASE SECONDED THE MOTION.
A workshop with Haywood Waterways and Soil and Water Conservation will be conducted August 25, 2004 at 3:00 p.m. The planning board members were encouraged to be present and ask questions of some of the most knowledgeable in the field of water preservation. The aldermen will be encouraged to attend this informative meeting.
Flashing / Scrolling Lights
It was the consensus of the board that the sign ordinance should remain as written. Signage size should not be increased especially considering the small commercial lots with little road frontage. If amended, the size should be decreased.
The board asked that Chairman Tilley write a letter to Dr. Cooper to receive input regarding the strategic/ comprehensive plan and the desire by some to increase sign size to include animation and scrolling lights.
There being no further business to discuss, on motion by Mr. Case, seconded by Mr. Brede, the meeting adjourned at 5:45 p.m.
Open Information Meeting Regarding the Zoning of the Campbell Creek Area
The proposed zoning of Campbell Creek/ Rocky Top Area was clearly defined on a map for public inspection with the Board standing ready to answer questions.
Don and Blanch Campbell attended the informational meeting. They too were concerned about the watershed.
The board would also like to talk to the Sanitary District for their input.
The information meeting closed at 6:10 p.m.
