7:16:47 PM Schmidt Reported that the first agenda item, Tony Estates. a minor subdivision, is not ready for discussion. Preliminary plat approval for Trotter's Run, which is the Bagley Property. It is a 93 lot SR-2 development consisting of two major tracts, with one tract having 67 lots with an entrance off West Main. The second tract of 26 lots will have an entrance off of Keebler Road. The entire development fulfills the green space ordinance requirements of the Village. There are two variances agreed to and approved by the Planning Commission. Variance 1 is a variance in the lot size of the first lot off West Main. Variance 2 is a variance on the length of the cul-de-sac in the second tract off Keebler.
7:19:20 PM Gulledge Called for a motion to approve the recommendation of the Planning Commission, and Schmidt's motion to approve the Preliminary Plat of Trotter's Run as recommended by the Planning Commission with two variances. One on lot size, and one on the length of the cul-de-sac.

7:20:03 PM Limberg Seconded the motion.
7:20:06 PM Limberg He asked if this was an SR -2 development. He was told it was.
7:20:13 PM Bell Asked if the two, the boulevard and cul-de-sac, would be connected. He was told they would not. He asked if it would be like two separate subdivisions.
7:20:28 PM Gulledge Explained it is one subdivision, but there are two entrances. One off Keebler, one off West Main.
7:20:40 PM Bell Asked if the entrance to the cul de sac would be the same quality and standard as the Boulevard entrance off Main Street entrance. Mayor told him no. He asked the reason for the variance on the length of the cul-de-sac.
7:21:22 PM Flaugher Answered his questions and explained the reasons. He spoke about the variance on the cul-de-sac. He said after the approval at the Planning Commission, it was discovered they were including an 80 foot right of way. Therefore, the variance is about 75 feet. The ordinance used to read that the maximum length of a cul-de-sac was 600 feet, but there are so many requests from developers for a variance because on a 600 foot street, there are not many lots. Therefore, the increase to 1000 feet. He said the only reason he knows of for the limitation to 600 feet was to hold down the amount of traffic. The reason for the variance is because of the layout of the subdivision, it is the only way it would work because of the overhead power lines that run directly through the two halves of the subdivision. He went on to say that the variance on the Main Street lot was due to a utility pole on the property. After discussion with Southwestern Electric, the pole may be removed, since the subdivision will have underground utilities. If it is removed, the first lot will be laid out again, and they will not need a variance.
7:24:48 PM Garcia Asked if there would be sewers. She was told yes.
7:24:58 PM Bell Asked if sidewalks were included. He was told they were.
7:25:07 PM Gulledge Said there is a motion and a second, and there were no more questions or comments, he asked for a roll call. Voting on the motion: Limberg - yes; Schmidt - yes; Bell - yes; Callahan - yes; Kostyshock - yes; Garcia - yes. Motion carried.
7:25:43 PM Bell Talked about the new Maryville calendar he has put on the web site. He said the Board and Caucus agenda will include calendar updates. He asked that the trustees bring their updates so he can get them on the calendar on a weekly basis.
7:26:40 PM Gulledge Suggested including the Department Heads.
7:26:55 PM Garcia Discussed the possibility of raising funds for the Food Pantry. She said they are planning something like a concert, but not to conflict with the Park Board's Concert in the Park events. She was told that all the concerts are on the calendar of events. She can check that to get a date.
7:27:47 PM Callahan Reported there will be no Economic Development meeting this month.
7:27:54 PM Kostyshock Reported that on June 9 & 10 Kessler will be at the Museum going over the history book. Anyone who wants to take part will be welcome to do so.

7:29:00 PM Gulledge Talked briefly about the Special Census that has been discussed the past several months, and asked for motion to authorize him to sign the paperwork for a Special Census. He reported that it is estimated to cost $79050. $58948 of this estimate is based on the Village's estimate 5500. Since these are estimates, the number could go down or up.
