The Planning Commission approved a replat in the 28-lot Applegate Landing subdivision project off B Street and the annexation of Hansard Avenue property during its March 15 meeting.
The commission approved a replat of a previously approved subdivision for property west of Stoltz Hill Road, north of Airport Road, in the Applegate Landing subdivision. The 2.63-acre site includes eight lots with a configuration different from the original approval.

The replat proposal involved repositioning the properties and creating two flag lots instead of one, Community Development Director Kelly Hart explained. The owners of property on Airport Road and adjacent to the land under discussion bought the site and are adding some of their original property to create the second flag lot.
An application for development of the Airport Road property will be submitted later, Hart said. A homeowners association involving nearby property on the east side of Stoltz Hill Road submitted a letter of opposition regarding concerns and confusion over whether it was meant for commercial use. It was clarified that such use was not intended.

The commission unanimously approved a 28-lot subdivision and development proposal on three properties on West B Street, west of South 7th Street. The combined 2.89-acre site sits in a residential mixed density zone among single-family homes and a religious assembly.
About 26 lots would be used for townhomes, one for a duplex and one for a storm-drainage detention pond. The one-story townhomes, with garages, would be designed so that two homes would be attached to share a wall and driveway.

The development proposal included a new public street running north-south through the subdivision off B Street which would then turn east-west at the property’s south portion and dead-end at property lines. The east-west portion would align with C Street, with homes to the east and a private street to the west.
The city received one email opposing the proposed subdivision based on density being next to county land, according to Hart.

The commission also approved the annexation of 511 Hansard Ave, a 3.92-acre lot south of Reeves Parkway, behind Pioneer School. The property, zoned for industrial use, sits in a developed neighborhood. It is within the urban growth boundary and currently improved with a single-family dwelling.
