DISPOSITION: Roll call vote…Aye 4, Nay 0, Absent 1 Motion declared duly passed 2. Moure Subdivision Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik presents the Moure Subdivision final plat. She states it is located in the ETZ of Dickinson. She states utilities at this time have not been mastered in this area. She states P&Z did approve this plat. Interim City Engineer Marshik along with staff recommend denial of this plat due to the revision of the plat/road, etc. She states the East Dickinson plan has not been completed. Ms. Marshik states the road locations are not specific and routes are part of the approved comp plan. The city has been working with the consultant that is working on the east Dickinson plan to provide ideas for routes that would not touch this property. Ms. Marshik is recommending denial as there is still good information that the city could get out of the east Dickinson plan to make better decisions when deciding on a route. Also, collector route is on the north side of the property and this is a change from the comp plan and would impact the property owner to the north. She states this change would make the property owner to the north responsible for 50% of the cost of the route. There has been a lot of discussion on this project. She states this is a unique case outside of city limits. Commissioner Jason Fridrich states at planning and zoning it was clear that the applicant and the city were to get together and work out a compromise. Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik states the city is trying to understand with the east Dickinson plan where to get to, what is in the current plan does not work with the applicant. Commissioner Robert Baer was wondering why the city did not contact the prior Planner for the information and why he was not consulted to make this a much faster project. Commissioner Baer states the comp plan was completed in 2013 and why can’t a couple of roads be moved so the applicant can build. Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik states this topic was discussed with the previous planner and we have visited with the consultant about this project. She states the compromise of the roads does affect other property owners in this area. The city did not receive these maps until 9:00 p.m. the night before the meeting and the city would like to wrap up east Dickinson plan to better understand how the city can move forward. The city did not plan on east Dickinson when the comp plan was being completed. Commissioner Robert Baer state if the city is going to continue to study, nothing is going to be accomplished and it is just a bunch of paperwork. Commissioner Baer states what if Gooseneck pulls out of this area. Commissioner Baer states he understands Ms. Marshik but does not know if the city can keep that time line. He does know the applicant wants to start some work on their land soon. Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik states that the city has allowed them to move forward with grading permit as long as they know if Something is going to change that is the risk that they will have to take. Tom Pearson from Gooseneck presents an alternate route as the sanitary sewer is going to end up where the route is. He feels the cheapest route is alternative 2. Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik states the city has an opportunity to work through some more of the caveats that are part of the east Dickinson plan and what is settled on is good viable options. Commissioner Jason Fridrich suggestion to table the item and work it out in two weeks. Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik would like for everyone to come to the table and come back with a better recommendation. There is new information from the P&Z meeting until last evening. She states the staff is not going tell to recommend approval as the city has not been able to vet it as the city normally does with projects. Staff cannot give that recommendation for approval of this project at this time as the staff have not had time to vet it. MOTION BY: Robert Baer SECONDED BY: Robert Baer Adopt Resolution No. 24-2022.
