PARKERSBURG - Wood County Planning Commission set a public hearing for May 2 on Phase II of North Pointe subdivision.
The development is located near the intersection of West Virginia 31 and 2.
The public hearing will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Fort Boreman public meeting room in the Judge Black Courthouse Annex prior to the regular May planning commission meeting.
Clint Pifer, engineer/landscape architect for the subdivision, said there will be seven new lots developed. The first phase of the development has 19 lots in it.
In 2009, the county planning commission gave approval for Phase I of the new Union District development. Developers are William A. Gandee and William Fordyce. The subdivision is approximately 11 acres.
"At the hearing more specifics will be presented. Bill Brown (county engineer) has reviewed the plans and asked for some changes to be made," said John Reed, compliance officer.
Plans call for seven new lots to be developed in the Wood County housing subdivision to go along with the 19 existing lots.
North Pointe subdivision is located at West Virginia 31 and 2.
Public hearing set for 7 p.m. May 2 in Judge Black Courthouse Annex.
Pifer, who attended Wednesday night's planning commission meeting, noted the changes requested were made; he filed a new map for the development.
"You requested the sediment/erosion control notification information, and we provided that; the water distribution documents are on file and 80 lots were accepted, and we have nowhere near that number in the subdivision," Pifer said.
Pifer is a member of the county planning commission. He abstained from voting on the public hearing date at Wednesday night's meeting.
The subdivision was granted variances for the plat map size and the curb dimensions for the development when the first phase was developed. Pifer was not a planning commission member at that time.
In other business, the planners voted to move their meeting time from 4:30 p.m. back to 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. The meeting time had been moved to accommodate then newly elected county commissioner Steve Gainer, who had another meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m.
There was no objection to the change of time from any members. Gainer serves as the liaison for the county commission on the planning board.
