Family Residential. The preliminary plat provides for 13 sublots all with conforming minimum area requirements of 22,000 sq. ft. established for the R-4, Single Family Residential district. Sublots 24 &25 do not meet the minimum 100-ft. width requirement at the 60-ft. front building set back; a seventy (70)-ft. front building set back is proposed sublots 24 and 25. The plat provides for the extension of the existing stub streets platted as part of Reedhurst Farms Subdivision No 1. The proposed street names for Trask Lane and Pratt Court have been routed to post office and local government agencies to confirm the names are appropriate. The existing portion of Reedhurst Lane will be renamed to Trask Lane in order to avoid any confusion with Reedhurst Drive which is a private drive with access onto Chillicothe Road. Trask Lane has a 60-ft right-of-way width extending 410 feet to a temporary cul-de-sac with a pavement diameter of 90-ft. The applicant is advised the cul-de-sac on Trask Lane is required to have a pavement diameter of 100-ft. The plan indicates a 60-ft. temporary easement over the cul-desac which will be removed on the extension of Trask Lane. A 10 x 60 strip of land behind the culde-sac is proposed to be owned by Maureen Osborne. The City Engineer is recommending this strip of land at the end of Trask Lane be eliminated to allow for the future extension of the road. Concrete sidewalks with a width of five (5)-ft. are located on both sides of the right-of-way but not around the cul-de-sac. Sidewalks are required to extend around the cul-de-sac. The Administration is requesting that the applicant provide a preliminary site layout of the future development of the property to the west of Trask Lane with proposed timeline for development. It may be appropriate to develop the Trask Lane cul-de-sac as a permanent cul-de-sac depending on the proposed timeline for future development of the property to the west which is not in common ownership. A proposed eight (8)-ft. mound is proposed to be installed on the Maureen Osborne property west of the Trask Lane cul-de-sac. Pratt Court has a 60-ft. right of way width extending 186-ft to a permanent cul-de-sac with a diameter of 120-ft. and pavement width of 100-ft. An island is located in the center of the cul-de-sac and if it is planted with grass and landscaping a note should be included on the plat that the owners surrounding the cul-de-sac are responsible for the maintenance of the grass and landscaping in the tree lawn island. Concrete sidewalks with a width of five (5)-ft. are located on both sides of the right and will extend around the cul-de-sac. The existing pavement type in Reedhurst Subdivision No. 1 is asphalt pavement with concrete curbs. The Administration is recommending the developer match the pavement type. The results of the trip generation study do not indicate traffic impacts significant enough to warrant a traffic impact study. An existing barn is located on sublot 26 and the plan indicates the lot will be owned by the Osborne Maureen Trustee until such time as a decision is made on the barn. The Administration has no objections with the location of the barn so long as the ownership of sublot 26 shall remains in the same ownership of parcel # 16-A-026-0-00-048-0 (Maureen Osborne Trust) and the sublot is not offered for sale until the disposition of the existing barn is made. An existing detention basin is located on the rear of sublots 17, 18, 19 and 20 and was platted with Reedhurst Farms Subdivision No. 1. The City Engineer has commented that the proposed local service drainage easements over Sublots #17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25 and 26 should be shown as City areawide drainage easements as roadway drainage is dependent upon the storm system through these sublots. The applicant is advised to evaluate if there is an existing drainage easement to the north of sublot 17 that will permit drainage through the Wayside Lakes Subdivision. Calculations for drainage and detention are required for review and approval by the City. Stipulations Preliminary Subidivison: 1. The applicant shall provide written confirmation as to the disposition of each of the City Engineer's comments and shall be included as parts of any final subdivision application. 2. The pavement type shall be asphalt with concrete curbs matching Reedhurst Farms No 1 pavement construction.

3. The ownership of sublot 26 shall remain in the same ownership of parcel # 16-A-026-0-00-048-0 (Maureen Osborne Trust) and not offered for sale until the disposition of the existing barn is made. Exhibits: Site Plan, GIS Map
