Approval of the layout of the Preliminary Plat of Cedar Lake No. 13

to adopt the staff report as finding of facts and to grant tentative preliminary plat approval of Cedar Lake No. 13, P.P. # 70-14-04-400-007 and part of P.P. # 70-14-04-400-002, located at 2600 Fillmore and 8900 24thAve., zoned LDR, Georgetown Township, Ottawa County, Michigan, as shown on the drawing dated 1/26/2018, as recommended by the Planning Commission, and with the following conditions:

a.     Building envelopes appear to meet ordinance requirements, but will be reviewed for exactness at the time a building permit application is submitted.  Some lots are affected by drainage easements.  These situations are noted to be self-created by the developer and would not, therefore, qualify to meet the standard in the ordinance regarding self-created situations should any time in the future a variance be requested based on those circumstances.

b.     As noted on the plan, lot 231 has no driveway access to Fillmore.

c.      All fees, including deferred assessments, shall be paid prior to the issuance of any building permits.

d.     If there is to be a plat entry sign, some type of legal instrument must be submitted for the maintenance of the sign.

e.      Attached garages with a minimum of 400 square feet shall be provided.

f.      Sidewalks will be provided by the individual property owner at the time a house is constructed.

Approval of the layout of the Preliminary Plat of Eagles Ridge No. 2

to adopt the staff report as findings of fact and to grant tentative preliminary plat approval of the layout of the Preliminary Plat of Eagles Ridge No. 2, part of P.P. # 70-14-08-400-025, located at 3358 Bauer Rd., zoned LDR, Georgetown Township, Ottawa County, Michigan, Georgetown Township, Ottawa County, Michigan, as shown on the drawing dated 1/30/18, and with the following conditions, as recommended by the Planning Commission:

  1. Building envelopes appear to meet ordinance requirements, but will be reviewed for exactness at the time a building permit application is submitted.  Lots 46 and 71 have no driveway access to Bauer Rd. and the front yard setbacks from the centerline of Bauer Rd. are 100 feet.  Lots 61, 64 and 65 appear to have small building envelopes.  A drawing was provided showing how a house with a minimum of 1,000 square feet in area (the minimum allowed in Chapter 24) and a minimum of a 400 square foot attached garage (the minimum allowed in Sec. 3.6(I) ) could fit on those lots. Some of the lots are affected by drainage easements.  All these situations are noted to be self-created by the developer and would not, therefore, qualify to meet the standard in the ordinance regarding self-created situations should any time in the future a variance be requested based on those circumstances.
  2. A note on the plan indicates that the developer will install the sidewalk adjacent to Bauer Rd. at the time of plat construction.
  3. All fees, including deferred assessments, shall be paid prior to the issuance of any building permits.
  4. If there is to be a plat entry sign on Bauer, some type of legal instrument must be submitted for the maintenance of the sign.
  5. Attached garages with a minimum of 400 square feet shall be provided.
  6. Sidewalks will be provided by the individual property owner at the time a house is constructed. 
  7. A note on the plan indicates that the property owners of lots 46 and 71 will maintain the detention ponds and the parkway along Bauer Rd.
