Mr. Urick indicated that they were asked to withdraw and they did.

 

Ms. Witol noted that the subdivision was the only thing withdrawn.

 

Mr. Urick noted that Shawn Hindle mentioned that he would like to schedule a meeting.  He also noted that he didn’t realize they needed a preliminary plan and a subdivision plan, that it didn’t make sense to do it if it’s not going to be approved.  He noted that Mr. Hindle stated we will meet all requirements, that includes the landscaping, and this confused them because it was more information than what was required.

 

Mr. Nearing, noted that normally when preliminary plans are submitted construction plans are also submitted as one.

 

Mr. Urick indicated that they never do this because it would cause them to spend more money than necessary for their clients, maybe this is the confusion we may need to change he indicated.

 

Mr. Nearing advised to get Rick Mauro and Veronica Witol together so they can talk about it and they can agree before it is submitted.

 

Mr. Urick indicated one of the concerns was parking spaces but the garage was to be part of the parking. He then indicated that Shawn Hindle will schedule a meeting to get together with everyone on it, the other issue will take about 30 days before the preliminary plat.

 

Mr. Luthie wanted to know if Mr. Urick will wait on rezoning

 

Mr. Urick noted that he thinks they will be fine but they hadn’t scheduled anything yet.
