SUBDIVISION CODE REVISION: Public Works Director McFrederick explained there has been subdivision interest which has brought up some questions with the City’s subdivision code. The City’s ordinance doesn’t allow division of property in the area of impact area that doesn’t trigger the subdivision code. McFrederick will be proposing a revised subdivision code to make some exceptions to the ordinance. One example is a one-time family split as long as the City gets what they need such as roads, water or sewer. Attorney Green stated there is confusion between the City and County ordinances on what a subdivision is and the requirements. McFrederick will provide a revised draft which will help simplify the process and will make the process more realistic.
McFrederick will be working through the connection policies, equity buy in for water and sewer and the subdivision code to make everything work together. Councilman Lester felt it was a good idea to revise it because it currently isn’t working. Mayor Walker also felt we need to look at equity buy in rates. He felt it has deterred growth.
