Date3/16/2005 Location Council Chamber
Time Speaker Note
6:51:52 PM Gulledge Called the third public hearing of Wednesday, March 16, 2005 to order. He explained that this hearing is to discuss the proposed annexation agreement between the Village and Milburn Road, LLC. He turned the hearing over to Attorney Wigginton.
6:52:05 PM Wigginton Commented that this has been the subject of other public meetings. The purpose of this hearing is to take any public comments regarding the proposed annexation agreement between the Village and Milburn Road, LLC. This is the developer who is proposing the 29 acre development, that consists of three (3) commercial, B-1 zoning lots and one SR-2 zoning lot. There will be approximately 40 to 44 homes depending on what is approved by the Maryville Planning Commission. Under the terms of the annexation agreement, the Village, upon annexation, will rezone the properties. The property is not currently in the Village. He said the developer is required to put in all the public improvements and to dedicate those improvements to the Village. This includes the sewer system, the roadways, water lines, etc. The Village will provide water service and sewer service. The developer will pay a tap on fee for Lot C in the amount of $22,355.00; the developer will be required to pay all development fees, including all green space fees, plat review fees, including completion of maintenance security for all the dedicated public improvements, all building permit fees. He commented that this is the essence of the annexation agreement.
6:53:56 PM Gulledge Asked if there were any questions or comments.
6:54:03 PM Ann Holliday Asked about the pump station in this area. She wanted to know if there would be a problem with the lift station taking on the extra commercial business. She asked if this is the same one that serves the subdivision and the hospital.
6:54:34 PM Gulledge Replied that the Village Engineer assures him that it will not be a problem.
6:54:47 PM Millikin Asked if the article he read in the Edwardsville Intelligencer about the lift station stating the cost to upgrade would be between $30 to $40,000 is inaccurate. There is not a need for a new station.
6:55:09 PM Gulledge Answered no, the lift station can be improved, but not because of the development. This development will be fine, however, there will be some changes.
6:55:22 PM Millikin Asked if the tap on fees would go toward the improvement. Mayor told him that would be up to the Board. He then asked if there are any other expenses that will be incurred by the city or state or county by adding this additional subdivision.
6:55:41 PM Gulledge Replied that if there are, he doesn't know about them. He said he believes there will be a left turn lane put in if this is approved tonight. However, Maryville will not be any part of that. It will be at the developers expense.
6:55:56 PM Millikin He said it is his understanding that because 162 is a State Highway, that will be between the developer and the State.
6:56:11 PM Holliday Said concerning the fees, aren't the fees $2,000. per house for hooking up to the water and the sewer.
6:56:39 PM Gulledge Replied it is actually $2,100 with the $100 inspection fee.
6:56:43 PM Holliday Said they are being charged $23,000. so the Village is giving them a break for adding all the homes.
6:56:55 PM Gulledge Told her that fee is just for the one building. The rest of the buildings will pay just like they did, per house.
6:57:02 PM Holliday Commented on Lot C and the fees charged.
6:57:05 PM Wigginton Read the fees for Lot C from the agreement which states the fee shall not exceed the amount of $22,355. Every other lot will pay the same amount as any other home owner would have to pay.
6:57:53 PM Gulledge Commented that currently a sewer tap is $2,000 plus $100 inspection fee for each of the SR-2 Lot D homes. They also have to pay a water tap on fee, as well as a tap on fee for the water line going into the building on Lot C.
6:58:04 PM Bell Asked about the setback of the Cambridge Homes from 162, how far it is.
6:58:26 PM Gulledge Answered that the two (2) wings are 109 feet from the right of way, and the front doors are approximately 160 feet.
6:58:39 PM Callahan Commented that he must have misunderstood the ordinance that the Board passed two years ago, requiring notification to the existing property owners if someone wanted to change the zoning next to them. He said he was surprised to find out that they are not required to tell the residents what is going on the lot. He said this particular ordinance they are talking about now, once the Board passes it, anything that is permissible by B-1 can be put on the lot. He said basically it is a done deal. He commented on the question that Ann Holliday had about the fees, he said yes, they are charging this company $23,000, however, the ordinance says they should be charged $406,000.
6:59:42 PM Gulledge Asked if there were any other questions or comments. There were no more. The hearing was closed.

Respectfully submitted,

Thelma Long, Village Clerk
