Supporting Information:

 

The proposed plat is the sixth part of a phased development.  This plat subdivides a 62-acre parcel into two tracts and two lots leaving an unsubdivided remainder of approximately 48 acres.  The Lots 1 and 2 and Tract C are less than five acres.  A soils report is required, and an engineer will sign the plat.  The appropriate note is on the plat.  Staff recommends the wastewater disposal note for the 10-acre Tract A be placed on the final plat.  The lots and tracts front existing rights-of-way or dedications provided by this plat.

 

Tract A contains a 60-foot wide panhandle to Miller Loop Road. This is suitable for dedication if needed by the further subdivision of Tract A.

 

Parts 4 and 5 of the subdivision have not yet been recorded. Staff recommends the surveyor or owner indicate the time frame for finalizing each part. It may be necessary to renumber some parts to keep them in sequential recording order, or to avoid gaps if one or more parts never get finalized.

 

A new 60-foot dedication (Onaka Street) connects Kayak Avenue and Jahwa Avenue.  This plat extends Jahwa Street across the northern boundary of Tract C.  Based on the previous phase of the development, it appears the intent is to eventually connect Jahwa Avenue to Ormond Street, which will provide a loop access with Miller Loop Road.

 

Tract A fronts Miller Loop Road by a 60-foot panhandle.  The panhandle is large enough to accommodate a right-of-way dedication when the tract is further subdivided.

 

Miller Loop Road, a State road, is a section line easement.  The dedication overlies the easement.

 

Per Planning Commission Resolution 2000-25, if the Certificate to Plat indicates any beneficial interests affect this property, they will be notified and given 30 days from the date of the mailing of the notification to respond. They are given the opportunity to notify staff if their beneficial interest prohibits or restricts subdivision or requires their signature on the final plat. If no response is received within 30 days, staff will assume they have no requirements regarding the subdivision and it may be finalized.

 

If the Certificate to Plat shows the property is affected by private covenants, staff recommends the recording information of the private covenants and restrictions of record in effect at the time the final plat is approved be noted on the plat (KPB 20.16.140). 

 

The property is not within an advisory planning commission.

 

No exceptions have been requested.
