PELHAM— The final plat for the Keeneland Valley single-family subdivision was approved by the Pelham Planning Commission at its Nov. 12 meeting. The 43-lot subdivision is located on the property adjoining Indian Lake Estates off County Road 261.
Joe Schifano, with Engineering Design Group, was present to address the commission.
“Mr. (Brooks) Harris and his contractors have been working over the past six months to grade out the lots and build the roads in the subdivision, and really complete with the project with the exception of the final plat,” Schifano said.
He explained that there was an old sanitary sewer line belonging to the city of Pelham. The line used to run across the property and the Engineering Design Group contractors have relocated a portion of it.
The final step with the project would be to have the final easement vacated, according to Schifano, which is an agenda item for the Nov. 15 Pelham City Council meeting.
City engineer Jesse Jowers also included a memorandum to the project concerning some items that needed to be addressed in order for the plat to be approved.
The project requires FEMA submittal for changes to a special flood hazard area, the fire department access road to the cul-de-sac of Kenneland Green needs to be completed, an open ditch along Indian Lake Lane needs to be stabilized and vegetated and a stop bar, stop sign, street signs and “No right turn” sign need to be added to the entrance of the subdivision.
The Planning Commission approved the final plat, pending the items on the memorandum and the City Council’s approval of the easement.
