Kathy Christensen lives at 700 East Center. She is subdividing her property into three parcels. The property is zoned RR-1 which requires 1-acre parcels. Lot 1 will have 1.38 acres, lot 2 will have 1.99 acres, and lot 3 will have 1 acre. Her home sits on lot 3.
Access. They will be constructing a private driveway and bridge that will come from 100 North 700 East. It will be privately owned and maintained by the Christensens. Keith Mogan will talk with Police Chief Trent Lloyd to see where it will be the safest place for the private drive to enter onto 700 East and 100 North. Christensens will be required to put a stop sign coming from the private drive. It might be advisable for a stop sign to be placed on 700 East as well. Christensens should make sure the bridge is heavy enough to hold the weight of a fire truck.
 
Matt Christensen advised that they are currently in the process of installing a bridge going across the canal for access to the property from 100 North. The property will also have access from the bridge on Center Street that goes to Kathy Christensen’s home.
Utilities. Sewer and water will both come from 100 North, along the private drive and under the canal (under the bridge). The water line will be an 8” line. They are installing a fire hydrant. Christensens are installing a pump station to pump sewer to 100 North. The sewer line will be a 2” sewer line. The pump station and sewer and water lines will be privately owned and maintained.
Matt Christensen said the manhole has been installed.
 
Right-of-way. Christensens will need to give the City a right-of-way so the City can service or repair the 2” water line. They will also need to give the City a 10-foot utility easement between lots 1 and 2 going east and west.
