V. Old Business:

1. Case 05-16: Ms. Sherry Denny is requesting the final plat approval at 2075 Erell Dowlen Road. This request includes 8.51 acres. This is the second time that this request has been brought before the board after being dropped from the agenda last month. Mr. Steven Artz is in attendance to represent Ms. Denny and has new handouts for the board which shows the corrections of the plat that were addressed last month. Mr. Artz states that after talking with Timmy Jeannette from the Environmentalist Office he was told that putting soil notations were an optional thing for a lot of this size. Mr. Artz states that the water line has been flagged and shown this as an easement. Mr. Neal asks what the intentions are for this lot, and Ms. Denny states that her intentions are to sell one lot with the house on it and to possibly build a home or move a mobile home on the other lot. Mayor Crosby states his concerns with the water pressure on this land and on the whole stretch of Erell Dowlen. Mayor Crosby states that he spoke with Mr. Roger Lemasters from the water company about the water pressure issue on Errel Dowlen and the effect that another home would put on this small water line. Mr. Lemasters has agreed to do a water study on this road and also Cooper Nicholson. Mr. Collins suggests that Mayor get together a petition of signatures from surrounding residents on these roads who also do not have enough water pressure and to present this to the board. Mayor Crosby excused himself from voting on this matter. A motion is made by Mr. Neal to approve this request and this is seconded by Alderman Ruth. The motion passes by a vote of 4-1 with Mayor Crosby abstaining. Mayor Crosby asks the minutes to show that the planning board was warned about flooding issues on this property.

After no further discussion was brought forward the meeting was adjourned officially at 8:00 p.m.
