On Monday night in the November Bryant Planning Commission meeting, two applications from Dan Moudy were accepted for a midtown TND overlay that has been requested to remove just over 42 acres from the midtown Bryant TND overlay district.
"A public hearing will be held on this issue on Dec. 13, the next Planning Commission meeting," Commission Chairman Lance Penfield said.[more]
With no public hearing set for the meeting, the Commission moved to new business.
Jacob Gillip requested final plat approval in the North Haven subdivision Phase 2 that is located in Bryant's territorial jurisdiction. The 2.7 acres at Hilldale and Rudolph Roads is currently improved vacant land.
"This is Phase 2, 10 lots out in north Bryant and we request final approval," said Roger Schrader, representing the applicant Jacob Gillip.
The Commission voted to recommend it to the City Council in the Nov. 18 meeting.
Jacob Gillip also represented the Pikewood subdivision No. 2 to request to replat lots 20 and 21 in the Pikewood subdivision No. 2 into lots 20R and 21R where the current rezoning is residential mixed use.
The Commission tabled the measure after discussion between Gillip, Bryant Fire Chief Randy Cox, Penfield and Commissioners Rob Roedel, Jim Erwin and Fred Foster.
"We looked at the project and I have concerns, flooding issues," Cox said. "We elevation-corrected in those areas to push the water toward LaVergne."
Gillip said the plan did not address drainage and "currently, there was no requirement since it is an older part of town."
A drainage study was suggested, much to the disagreement of the builder and owner Roy West.
"It's not cost effective," West said. "I'm not going to make any money off the duplexes."
The exchange of words from West and the Commissioners didn't change much and there was a motion to table the issue.
Commissioners Louis Kealer and Ken Brunt were chosen as the chairman and vice chairman of the nominating committee.
