Plan Commission Chair Darryl Weber requested that Mr. Nick Ladopoulos present his land use proposal to the members of the Plan Commission. Mr. Ladopoulos owns 21.38 acres located at 5201 Netherwood Road. This property borders 2 existing sub divisions, Ladopoulos is proposing a limited building space with private green space, between 12 and 20 condos with residents over age 55. A conservancy of utilities with a trail system and a park that is located in the Village. Eleven single family dwellings with one existing dwelling on site. The condos would have 3.5 – 4 acres and green space of 9.72 acres total. There would be deed restrictions, the smallest lot would be 52,000 square feet while the largest proposed lot would be 65,000 square feet. The Village of Oregon was in favor of the change however it was not economically sound for the developer. Plan Commission members were concerned about the 2 acre lot minimum currently required in the Town of Oregon. The members were open to the idea of a conservation sub division. More research would be required to continue with the project.
State Assembly Representative Brett Davis attended the meeting for the purpose of explaining to the Plan Commission the new Impact Fee Law changes. Davis explained that the law came into effect due the misuse of funds. Representative Davis felt that the Town could still collect an impact fee at the time of land rezones, place the funds in a separate account, segregated from the municipalities general fund of spending. There should be a plan in place for the allocation of the funds and track the process with a seven year distribution usage. If the funds are not used within the seven year requirement an extension must be filed. Funds may be accumulated for the purpose of a major land purchase. The law was not as stringent as first presented and the tracking of funds should be retroactive to the 14th day of June 2006. The Plan Commission members thanked Davis for taking the time to research and share the information.
The Public Informational Meeting for the Comprehensive Land Use Plan is scheduled for December 4, 2006.
Motion made by Klahn and seconded by Duffin to adjourn the Plan Commission meeting at 8:30 p.m.
