RANCHESTER — Ranchester Town Council approved a preliminary plat for the Stonebrook Five subdivision, with one change requested, at its regular meeting Tuesday.
The subdivision will consist of nine lots and will complete development along Brook Street in the Stonebrook Meadows Subdivision, town Engineer Chris Johnson said. It totals approximately two acres and is part of the annexation of Barney Bros. Land and Livestock property the Council approved last spring.
Council members approved the preliminary plat after requesting that “Note 10” on the plat be rewritten to accommodate the town’s floodplain prevention code, Johnson said.
“It’s a simple subdivision in a location that makes perfect sense to continue it there,” Johnson said.
The Town Council will likely consider the final plat later this fall.
In other business, Council members discussed implementing an official permitting process for use of town property by citizens for parties, reunions and similar private functions, Town Clerk Teri Laya said. Once the permits are drawn up, the Council will formally approve the process that will require residents to obtain permits from Town Hall to rent parks and ballparks. Connor Park will not be included because it is a state park.
Johnson announced he will advertise for final payment on the chip seal and Safe Routes to School projects that were recently completed.
Mayor Allan Moore read a proclamation commemorating Constitution Week, which is Sept. 17-23, and the Council approved monthly bills for a total of $43,703.40, Laya said.
Following the regular meeting, the Council went into executive session to discuss personnel matters.
No action was taken following the executive session.
