Mike Ganz representing The Bridge presented a site plan for a fence at 651 Brakke Drive. The fence will be on the west side of the building and will be a 6’ high wood privacy fence. The fence will be 43’ from the center of the road. This will not impact the vision triangle.

Jon Sonnetag and John Parotti, representing NWP Holdings, presented a preliminary plat for Whispering Oaks. Moline explained what has happened to this point and reviewed what needs to be done. This is in the one acre minimum area, located in the NE ¼ of the SW¼ and in the SE ¼ of the SW1/4 of section 7, T29N, R19W and consists of 26 lots on 33.59 acres. Also, this is in the extra-territorial zone and will be reviewed by the Village of North Hudson. The County Land and Water Conservation department will review the storm water calculations and other issues under their jurisdiction. The developer is showing a town road to the west toward Pheasant Trail. The developer is working/has worked with the County on all of the items that were questioned and believe they are or will be in compliance. They need to check the distance to the driveway on Krattley Lane. They will either move the existing driveway or apply for a variance. The driveways will be built with the road. There will be rain gardens along the road right of way as part of the storm water control. These rain gardens will be shown on the final plat. The Commission would like to see a temporary cul-de-sac at the end of each road phase with a sign explaining that this road will be extended. Moline opened the discussion to the audience. The elevations of the roads were questioned. The neighbors were concerned about the size of the lots and wells and septic systems and what would happen if the developer goes broke. They would like to see bigger lots.
Bast made a motion to recommend to the Town Board to approve the preliminary plat as presented with the condition that they install temporary cul-de-sacs to serve each phase and be removed with construction of each subsequent phase, Dietze seconded. Motion carried.
Wang made a motion to adjourn, Meierotto seconded. Motion carried.
Meeting adjourned at 9:30 p.m.
