Public Comments

Chairman Bails opened the hearing to the public.

Kim Beneli – 16554 N. Dysart Road, wanted to know if this is a PAD approval or a rezone and she feels a rezone action has to be separate from a PAD approval. She felt it would be better to table this application because this is a conceptual plan and possibly lower the density. She also stated she thought it would be wise for the developer to get a letter from the water district on their stand as to the approval of this project. Also she felt they needed letters from the fire and school district before this is approved.

Deputy City Attorney Jeff Blilie replied that a PAD approval is a rezone.

Frank Fox - 30809 N. 171st Ave. he stated he was impressed with the thoroughness of the commission. He agrees that the city does need more openness and is glad to see the city moving in that direction.

Chairman Bails closed the hearing to the public.
