2. Dennis Higley – Property Preconception Review. Duke Lane and Little Sweden Road.
Mr. Higley would like input from the Daniel Planning Commission. He would like to annex property on Duke Lane and Little Sweden Road into Daniel. He would have to disconnect from Independence. They are proposing 1 acre lots plus and industrial area. Commissioner Rawlings thought 1 acre lots would make sense. Commissioner Binkerd thought they should stay with the 5 acre lots. Commissioner McAllister said there needs to be more space for industrial and more discussion on the 1 acre lots. It is possible that the sewer and water lines could connect into Storm Haven. Commissioner Norris thinks that it should be 5 acre lots and that the sewer lines are a longs ways from Storm Haven. Commissioner Weight thought they should stick with the large lots. Commissioner Bunker thought that having the sewer line halfway to Storm Haven and affordable housing was a good idea.
