More discussion continued after Terry Fountain gave his analysis of the Village Land Subdivision Ordinance Book. He thought there were various items int he book that either needed clarification/definition or needed to be changed due to out of date information. Some of the information needs to correspond to what standards there are at IDOT for construction on roadways and sidewalks. Steve Schroll, representative from Crawford, Murphy and Tilly gave some feedback from his perspective on corrections and changes, and he and Terry Fountain will need to meet together at a future date to discuss finalizing the Village Land Subdivision Ordinance Book. Therefore, no vote was taken at this time regarding the ordinance. The item has been tabled until the next Planning Commission meeting in June. At that time the Board will look over the final revisions. Todd Missel motioned that the Village Land Subdivision Ordinance revision will be revised again and resubmitted for approval at the June Planning Commission meeting. There will also be announced another Public Hearing of this item which will be held before the meeting.
