Whispering Pines Council Considers Subdivision Plan
A Whispering Pines developer has been given the go-ahead to submit a preliminary plan on a long debated subdivision near the village.
The Heron's Brook subdivision, planned for years and last considered by the board in 2011, was again discussed by the village council at Wednesday's regular meeting. The 52-acre, 67-lot tract with a proposed community center and pool was met with favorable comments from the council with one caveat.
"I like everything about this, but I am concerned about the annexation issue," said Whispering Pines Mayor Bob Zschoche. "If the development is not annexed, I'm reluctant to consider approving it."
No action was taken by the council.
"The next step in the process is for Mr. Webster to submit a preliminary plat that will lay out everything," said council member Paul Sams.
In other news, the council unanimously approved a resolution to transfer remaining monies from the capital reserve acquisition fund to the general fund toward the purchase of a fire pumper truck.
"A balance of $13,160 will be put into the general fund," said Village Manager Sue Shuster. The cost of the truck is $352,000.
The village maintains an additional capital reserve fund for emergency situations.
