New Business:

Joe shared Duke will be building a new warehouse on Rickenbacker Parkway by the Hyper Logistics building. The land is already approved and set for Rickenbacker Development District.

Joe shared Chris Pence submitted a development plan for changes to the building at Penlin Seeding at the Paul Pence farm on Bulen Pierce Road. A portion of this farm was zoned GB with conditional use H&N in November of 2008.

The development plan submitted by Mr. Pence in January was denied due to lack of information. Sec. 11.02.07 (2-2) states “a development plan shall contain a site plan for the property, drawn to scale, showing all property lines and building outlines, access drives, parking areas, and other notable physical features, including underground drainage systems. In addition, the Development Plan shall contain a narrative description of the proposed use and how such use will impact adjacent property. The Development Plan shall contain specific information identifying such impacts, including, but not limited to storm runoff and traffic, and how such impacts will be addressed in development of the property”. Joe stated this information was not part of the development plan submitted and it was denied. There was no written narrative and the drawing was not to scale and did not include all the information needed.   Joe shared with Mr. Pence that information regarding the requirements for a Development Plan is available on the Harrison Township Website. The original plan included a building that blocked sight of parked equipment from the road. This complied with the section of the resolution stating the need for fencing or screening devices to obscure the view of equipment. A crushed asphalt pad has been added to the side of the building since the development plan was denied on January 10, 2014. Equipment that is currently parked on this asphalt can be seen from the road. Therefore, Mr. Pence is currently in violation. Joe contacted Mr. Pence on April 14, 2014 and asked if he intended to build on the property. Chris stated he is not currently planning to proceed with the building.

The board agreed Mr. Pence is currently in violation.
