City of Carlyle Street and Alley Committee met Sept. 4.
Here is the minutes provided by the committee:
The meeting was called to order by Chairman John Hodapp on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 9 a.m. at Carlyle City Hall. Committee members present included John Hodapp and Scott Diekemper. Logan Speiser was absent. Others present included Norman Conrad, Sunny Tut, Pat Netemeyer, Don Horrel, Michael Fix, Michael Warren, Doug Ratermann, Joe Heiligenstien, Joe Behrman, Mayor Judy Smith, Andy Brackett, and Martha Reinkensmeyer.
After reviewing the minutes from the August 22, 2019 meeting, Scott Diekemper made a motion to approve the minutes. John Hodapp seconded the motion. After a voice vote, all were found in favor.
The first item on the agenda was travel plaza discussion. Pat Netemeyer stated that the second entrance from Governor’s Drive has been removed. The frontage road is 32’ with the shoulder and has a 90’ turn radius. The turnoff to the frontage road must be submitted to IDOT for approval. Scott stated that REA has a lot of guidewires south of the entrance to the frontage road. He asked if the golf course would approve the entrance moving slightly to the north. Don Horrel stated that this would not be a problem. There was then a discussion on the entrance to Governor’s Drive, the culvert under Governor’s Drive, and zoning requirements. Joe Heiligenstein stated that this project should not have to go in front of the Zoning Board as it currently meets all requirements. John asked whether it should go in front of the Zoning Board to show that the City is being thorough. Joe Heiligenstein stated that he will research whether it should go in front of the Zoning Board. It was determined that the next step would be for Sunny and Pat to submit the turnoff to the frontage road for IDOT for approval. Sunny stated that he would build the frontage road up to the point that requires approval from IDOT. Once IDOT approves the turnoff, he would complete the frontage road. Sunny and Pat would also apply for a building permit for Phase 1 from the City. Sunny would also apply for TIF. Once his TIF application is received, Andy will send it to Keith Moran. Keith will make his recommendations and then EDC would meet to review the recommendations with Sunny. EDC would then make a recommendation to Council. No motions were made.
The second item on the agenda was traffic signs. A discussion was held as to where to best place traffic signs on Governor’s Drive that state Local Delivery Only. Scott Diekemper made a motion to place signs at the entrance to Governor’s Drive that state Local Delivery Only. John Hodapp seconded the motion. After a voice vote, all were found in favor.
The third item on the agenda was street/alley oiling. Joe Behrman stated that Fairfax Street will be oiled from 1st through 7th Streets on September 9, 2019. He added that all alleys that made arrangements to be oiled have been oiled. No motions were made.
There was no old business.
There was no new business.
The sixth item on the agenda was any other comments. Doug Ratermann asked Joe Behrman to run a camera in the storm sewer that comes down onto Sand Ridge Road before repairs are started on Valley View and Lake Vista. Doug added that the once the repairs start, the replaced curbing will be identical to the existing curbing. It was also determined that it would be beneficial for the City to contact IDOT to discuss the frontage road entrance. It might help speed up the approval process. There was also a discussion on whether the travel plaza would need City approval for gaming if the State approves it.
There were no public comments.
The Committee did not enter executive session so there were no executive session items on which to vote.
With no further business to discuss, Scott Diekemper made a motion to adjourn. John Hodapp seconded the motion. Finding all in favor, the meeting adjourned at 10:34 a.m.
