3.   Redtail Estates Rural Land Use Plan File #19-LAND3889:  

Rob gave an overview of the Redtail Estates Rural Land Use Development, which included a slide presentation.  Redtail Estates RLUP Preliminary Plan is 545 acres in size, however, the RLUP consists of 175- acres in the O-Open zoning district for 10 single-family lots ranging in size from 5.5 to 6.5 acres and 2 residual lots of 112 acres with access off County Road 4 and Parish Ranch Road.  Property owners within 1000 feet where notified of the request and no comments were received.   A neighborhood meeting will be held before the Board of County Commissioners meeting is scheduled.

 

MOTION:  Member Wise move to approve staff’s recommendation with the conditions according to staff recommendation with the exception that the open space / residual lot is 67 % of the total acres and the total acreage be a minimal of 175 acres to sustain 10 building lots.  Member West seconded the motion.   

 

Discussion:

 

Member West questioned if a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners for consideration for residual lot to be in perpetuity. 

 

Rob stated this board could make a separate message to the Board of County Commissioners to consider a permanent conservation easement instead of the 40-year protection, as currently requested.  

 

Chair Grazier voiced her concern regarding the community meeting not being held at this time and stated that it does not sound like there are any concerns. However, would like a summary of the community meeting in order to address any concerns if any arise before it goes to the Board of County Commissioners.

 

Member Wise made a motion to revisit the motion made tonight if any negative feedback from the community meeting arises.

 

Member Wise amended his motion to include the fact that we are approving Redtail Estates Rural Land Use Plan subject to no negative comments regarding the plan arise at the community meeting and reserve the right to reconvene and reconsider if so.
