Mr. Greenwood told the Committee that the purpose of this meeting is to look at the Capital Improvement Plan for roadways and utilities. At this time Eddie Haas of Barton-Asehman Associates , the Town's traffic consultant, presented the Capital Improvement Plan that his firm has developed for the Town's roadways. Mr. Haas explained the abbreviations used on the charts and how he arrived at the numbers used. He then told the Committee how Barton-Aschman had arrived at the cost projections. Mr. Haas then explained that the Committee would decide what percentage of the cost would be charged as impact fees. He stated that Kirkwood Blvd., Trophy Club Drive, and Trophy Lake Drive are projected to be four lane, and J. T. Ottinger and Roanoke Road are projected as two lane roads. Sam School Road is largely improved within Westlake and should be removed from the 10 -year CIP unless Southlake makes improvements within their jurisdiction. Dennis Wilson responded to the question as to the next step in this process by telling the Committee that the engineers will now develop cost estimates and service units to determine what the impact fees will be. Then a draft range of policies will be developed that will be submitted to the Committee for review. The Advisory Committee recommended approval of the 10 -year CIPs with the modifications noted above. Larry Fuson of The Hogan Corporation presented the Capital Improvement Plan in regard to the water and wastewater plan. The biggest question that the Committee had was in regard to the above ground storage tank and where it would be located. The consensus of the Committee was to proceed with the Capital Improvement Plan, with a relocated elevated storage tank to a south westerly location on the Circle T Ranch. (Mr. Anderson concurred with this location.) In addition it was recommended that talks be initiated with Keller to pick up the higher pressure areas with their service in order to Impact Fee Advisory Committee Meeting December 4, 1996 Page 2 reduce the water tower height by up to 50 feet. In addition, it was recommended that options be pursued which would avoid the need to construct elevated water storage. The master plan and CIP should reflect no reliance on special agreements with other Governments at this point. If there are changes, then the plan can be updated. The Advisory Committee recommended approval of the 10 -year CIPs with the modifications noted above. The meeting was adjourned at 8:07 p.m.
