Absent: Dale White, Member Steve Sallman, Member Dennis Wilson opened the meeting at 4:13 p.m. He explained how he had arrived at the numbers in the worksheet that was sent to all the members. Mr. Wilson then asked if there were any questions regarding the numbers and the way the worksheet was drawn up. Darcy Anderson of Alliance Development Co. stated that he had a continent to make not about the numbers but as to where the Committee is headed. Mr. Anderson then said that as the Circle T Ranch would be served by the Lake Turner MUD's No. 2 & 3 as to water, sewer, roads and drainage there should be no inclusion of these improvements on the Ranch in the Capital Improvement Plan and therefore would be no impact fees assessed on the Ranch. He then read the attached letter noting this into the record. Mr. Wilson told Mr. Anderson that the issue raised has been under discussion in the Board for several years and that the Town has the desire and is developing the capabilities to provide the services, Mr. Wilson stated we still need to develop land use assumptions in order to prepare a coordinated master plan for the Town. Mr. Wilson told the Committee that the issue of "who" provides "what" needs to be established outside of this Committee, and September 16, 1996 Impact Fee Advisory Committee Meeting Page 2 that the Committee has the mandate to pull together the information which will serve as the basis for any provision of services. Mr. Anderson told the committee that he did not want the Committee to get too far along in this process without understanding the position of the owners of the Circle T Ranch. Action by the owners might cause changes in the future, wasting everyone's time and the Town's money. Mr. Anderson then suggested that the Traffic Survey Zones be redrawn to enable the Circle T Ranch to be taken out without affecting any other portion of the Town. Mr. Anderson also stated that he had no problem with the amount of development allocated to the Circle T Ranch, given the current zoning. Richard Kuhlman of Maguire -Thomas Partners suggested a modification to the Traffic Survey Zones affecting their property. Mr. Kuhlman also suggested a redistribution of the development square footage exhibited on the spreadsheet, stating that the overall numbers would not be changed. After much discussion of the above issue, it was agreed that the Committee would meet again on Monday, September 30, 1996 at 4:00 p.m. The meeting was then adjourned at 5:05 p.m.
