Mr. Shinaver said he has received staff comment letters. Joanie Clark – Vectren Energy - No objections. Ms. Clark said the 4-inch plastic main is on the west side of Cherry Creek Road so it would be very long service. Greg Hoyes – Hamilton County Surveyor’s Office - Letter sent. No objection to the use variance. Mr. Hoyes added that he has received the drainage calculations and will get them reviewed. David Littlejohn – City of Carmel Alternative Transportation Coordinator - Letter sent. Mr. Littlejohn said there is a 10-foot path required along Cherry Tree Road. Also Mr. Littlejohn said he has sent the bike parking standards so the petitioner will know whether the bike racks they propose will meet the standards. Daren Mindham – City of Carmel Urban Forestry - Review comments sent. Mr. Mindham said the main concern is to make sure the existing trees which are being preserved are shown on the plans. Jason Stewart – City of Carmel Utilities Department - Comment letter sent January 9. No further comments. Dave McCoy – City of Carmel Addressing Coordinator - No comments. Page 2 of 3 City of Carmel Technical Advisory Committee January 17, 2018 Alex Jordan – City of Carmel Engineering Department - Engineering Department has no issues with the special use amendment. Mr. Jordan said Crossroads Engineering and John Thomas have both looked at the plans. Comments will be sent soon. Nick Mishler – City of Carmel Building & Code Enforcement - No comments. Alexia Lopez – City of Carmel Planning & Zoning - No comments. Angie Conn – City of Carmel Planning & Zoning - Comments sent. Department is awaiting an official response to the comments. Mr. Shinaver said he understands TAC review comments are due February 16. Mr. Rottmann said the 10-foot path will be difficult to achieve with the existing utilities. He asked if the Department would be open to providing half of this path on the owner’s property and providing easement for this. Mr. Littlejohn said if the path cannot be facilitated in the right-of-way the Department would ask that it be placed in an easement. Christina Girod - Duke Energy - Email sent on January 5th to Structurepoint indicating that Duke will be servicing this area. Ms. Girod said when service is to be established, she will be the point of contact. 9:20 a.m. Docket No. 18010004 Z: West Bridge PUD Rezone. The applicant seeks approval to rezone and primary plat 13.91 acres to PUD/Planned Unit Development in order to develop 35 single-family dwellings. The site is located at 4281 W 106th Street, and is zoned S-1/Residential. Filed by Randy Green with ISBG Capital LLC. Randy Green with ISBG Capital LLC and Mike Reeve with Terra Site Development presented the project. Joanie Clark – Vectren Energy - Ms. Clark said she does not think Vectren has received plans for this, but if the development would like gas service, it is available on the north and south sides of 106th Street. Greg Hoyes – Hamilton County Surveyor’s Office - Mr. Hoyes said regarding the PUD there are no comments. However, regarding the Primary Plat, there are several comments. The one major comment is the Petitioners missed a gas pipeline on the property. Mr. Hoyes said there is a Shell Equilon pipeline that runs further southeast than the other four, and he said the Petitioner should contact Equilon to find out about the easement through the property. Also, Mr. Hoyes said the Department has concerns with the regulated drain relocation. Other issues include pipes being shown within lots and easements not being wide enough. Mr. Reeve asked if it was a possibility to get the easement down to 30 feet. Mr. Hoyes said this would be a possibility if it is piped, but if it’s an open ditch, the distance would be 25 feet from top of bank on each side. David Littlejohn – City of Carmel Alternative Transportation Coordinator - Letter sent. Mr. Littlejohn said he would like to see the multi-use path and sidewalks on the plans. Also, it appears there is a conflict with the trees and sidewalks being shown in the same area. Finally, Mr. Littlejohn said the right-of-ways in the PUD do not meet the thoroughfare plan. Page 3 of 3 City of Carmel Technical Advisory Committee January 17, 2018 Daren Mindham – City of Carmel Urban Forestry - Letter sent on the PUD. Mr. Mindham said he will need a complete landscape plan. Ryan Hartman – Clay Township Regional Waste District - No issue with the rezone. Mr. Hartman said he is not ready to make comments on the primary plat since the drawings were incomplete. Dave McCoy – City of Carmel Addressing Coordinator - No comment. Rodney Johnson – Indianapolis Power & Light - Mr. Johnson said IPL’s concern is the conduit delivered out to the site is installed per the pipeline specs. Alex Jordan – City of Carmel Engineering Department - Comments sent. A majority of the comments were regarding detention, as it was not clear from the plans where the detention is going to be. Also, it appears that the entire east side of the site is discharging directly to the regulated drain without being detained. Mr. Reeve said the discharge is actually going to a dry pond. Mr. Scott asked if a Hammerhead street with 50-foot turnaround would be acceptable. Mr. Jordan said the Petitioner would need to check with the fire department to see if this would be acceptable. He added that the Department typically prefers cul-de-sacs in these situations. Nick Mishler – City of Carmel Building & Code Enforcement - No comments. Alexia Lopez – City of Carmel Planning & Zoning - Department is still reviewing. Mr. Scott asked if there would be a way that some of the right-of- ways in the PUD would be smaller than the current 56-foot requirement. Ms. Lopez said Engineering would need to be involved and there would be other factors, such as whether parking would be restricted on one side of the street or both. Angie Conn – City of Carmel Planning & Zoning - No comments.
