1. Extension of Oak Plaza Drive – Jim Tatum, Tatum Engineers was recognized. He presented a preliminary plat of Oak Plaza Drive Extension. He advised commission members that this plat is the same as the preliminary sketch submitted in September 2007 at a special meeting and public hearing for concept approval. Copies of the minutes of the 2007 meeting and public hearing were distributed to commission members for review. Mr. Tatum stated that H. L. Laws in now prepared to move forward with the plan and they are requesting plat approval. A citizen voiced concern that the property is presently zoned Light Industrial and asked if H. L. Laws would consider rezoning it to Commercial. Mr. Plauche agreed and said he would pursue the rezoning.

Mr. Fontenot made a motion to set a public hearing for the October 22, 2008 meeting. Mrs. Purnell seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.


1. Variance Request: Aaron Daniel, 220 Gleason Street, requesting a variance to construct a fence on the drainage servitude area on the rear or south side of his property.

Mrs. Stelly made a motion to recommend approval of the variance. Mr. Thibodaux seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

Two corrections to the agenda were noted. The Secretary noted that the variance request submitted by Mr. Daniel is for a fence variance and not a setback variance. The Chairman noted that the minutes to be approved were for the August 27, 2008 meeting and not July.

There was no other business to come before the commission.

Mr. Fontenot made a motion to adjourn. Mrs. Stelly seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

The meeting adjourned at 6:50 PM.

Marianne Berthelot, Secretary
