Upon motion of Mr. Carroll Fontenot seconded by Mr. Jules Thibodaux, the minutes of the March 27, 2002 meeting were approved as written. Motion carded unanimously.
The first item on the agenda was a presentation of the plans for the proposed Orleans Quarters Subdivision being the subdivision of the Dane D’Armond property located In Section 55. T8S R12E, Town of Brusly for DNB, LLC. Since there was a large representation of concerned citizens the chairman asked him to exibit a copy of the plat. He explained that the proposed subdivision would have a total of 80 lots when complete. The first filing will consist of 30 lots.
The following are items of concern that were discussed:
*Impact on traffic in the area.
*Use of connector streets between Orleans Quarters and Allene Street
*Size of lots.
In response to the traffic concerns, Mr. Decoteau agreed to have a traffic study done for presentaton at the next meeting. Mr. Neisler advised him that traffic generated by the new Brusly Oaks Subdivision should be taken into consideration also.
In answer to the size and type of houses that will be required, Mr. D’Armond stated that at this time they are looking at a minimum of 1,500 to 1,600 square feet. He introduced Mr. Danny Rabalais as his project manager and Mr. Rabalais showed copies of several house plans that they were looking at.
Mr. Neisler pointed out changes and or corrections needed on the plat prior to the next meeting and advised Mr. Decoteau that a copy of the list would be provided to him after the meeting. Following is his list submitted to the commission:
1) Vicinity Map – project site shown at incorrect locaton.
2) No street lights shown – should be approximately 200’ apart.
3) No fire hydrants shown – should be at intervals of not less than 400” (page 14 Subdivision Regulations).
4) Building setback for R-1 is 30” not 25” as shown on the plat.
5) (Page 5, Section 19.5 Subdivision Regulations). It is desirable to provide street access to adjoining property, proposed streets shall extend to the boundary of such property. As shown currently, no future lots can develop on the north side of the street because of the reserved 5-foot landscape area which limits connectivity to future subdivisions or street networks.
6) Lots do not line up with existing adjacent subdivision (Allene Street) which causes the first reserved street R-O-W on Allene Street to be misaligned and renders first R-O-W useless for any future connectivity to the subdivision.
There was no further discussion on this matter.
Mr. Carroll Fontenot made a motion to hold a public hearing on this request for preliminary plat approval at the next meeting on May 22, 2002. Mrs. Rosa Stelly seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
Under other business the Commission heard the following items:
*Skipper Grady submitted a proposal for a division of property between the Bourgeois family and Calvin Straub. He stated that they are resubdividing two lots in order to allow separation of the two existing business establishments. He was informed that he should submit an official survey plat within the required time frame to allow for review and advertisement. The plat should meet all requirements and show the existing buildings. There was no further discussion an this matter.
Mr. Jules Thibodaux made a motion to hold a public hearing on this request at the next meeting on May 22, 2002 subject to the survey plat being submitted to the Secretary within the required time frame. Mrs. Claudette Purnell seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
*Jim Tatum with Tatum Engineers representing Jason Safford and Roland Dugas presented a revised preliminary plat of Brusly Oaks Subdivision for approval. He advised the commission that after issues and concerns about the lake were brought up to the developers and after consideration the lake was removed from the plans thus causing a revision on the plat. He pointed out that several more lots and a common area at the entrance to the subdivision were added and the entrance to the subdivision from Elaine Street was moved slightly south where it would be in front of the Fire Station. All else remains the same. The drainage system was discussed and he advised that the proposed canal on the remainder of the property would be utilized and enlarged to compensate and drainage system should be the same or possibly better. There was no further discussion on this matter.
Mr. Jules Thibodaux made a motion to hold a public hearing on this request at the next meeting on May 22,2002. Mrs. Rosa Stelly seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
There was no other business to come before the Planning Commission.
