Like many projects that launched before the recession struck 10 years ago, this Meadowbrook Estates project stalled after the first phase and fell into receivership. The current owner now seeks preliminary plat approval to complete the project.
While similar to the preliminary plat design approved in 2002, the most significant changes between the two designs include: the number of lots increased from 108 to 127 albeit slightly smaller lots; and, the S. Meadow Avenue connection with Eureka Road was eliminated, being converted into a cul-de-sac; and, three lots now front onto Eureka Road instead of all the lots being accessed internal to the project.
In conjunction with Phase 1, two basins (Tracts A and B) were designed and constructed to detain stormwater for the all phases of the project. Underground storm sewers will be extended to serve the new phases of the development.
Additional right-of-way was dedicated with the first plat on the north side of R. D. Mize to realign the curve radius, eliminating the slight kink in the existing alignment. Generally, plans call for the developer to construct the middle part of the street alignment with the City completing the end segments through the use of license surcharge funds. The developer and the City are entering into a development agreement for the roadway improvements to R. D. Mize Road; such agreement will be approved by the City Council in concurrence with the next final plat. Sidewalks will be constructed throughout the subdivision as required by City Code. Additional right-of-way is being dedicated along Eureka Road.
Water and sanitary sewers are available in the existing subdivision and will be extended to service the proposed phases with additional fire hydrants will be added as necessary.
