Plans to finish the final phase of a Yukon housing addition moved a step closer to reality this week.
The Yukon Planning Commission, at its July 18th meeting, voted 5-0 to recommend approval for a final plat of River Mesa. The Yukon City Council will consider the request at an upcoming meeting.
Phase four will cover 9.02 acres on the south side of E Wagner Road between N Piedmont Road and N Yukon Parkway.
The proposed final plat contains 38 lots with no common area. Development of River Mesa began some seven years ago.
Project manager Anthony Hanley, of Crafton Tull & Associates in Yukon, presented the request on behalf of Manco Enterprises LLC.
“This is the last phase of the River Mesa Addition,” Hanley told planning commissioners. “This final plat conforms to the preliminary plat of 2015.
“Construction plans have been submitted to the city engineer for review. We haven’t received those comments yet.”
Yukon city staff has recommended approval of the final plat.
River Mesa’s larger water and sewer improvements were installed in the first couple phases of development, according to Yukon Assistant City Manager Mitchell Hort.
There are six acres of common area existing in River Mesa, Hanley advised commissioners.
River Mesa adjoins the Ranchwood Heights and Smoking Oaks housing additions.
All five Yukon Planning Commission members voted “yes” to recommend approval of the final plat – Chairman Bill Baker, Vice Chairman Jarrid Wright, David Enmark, Nick Grba, and Jeff Geis.
WILSHIRE CURB CUT
The Yukon Planning Commission also voted unanimously at the July 18th meeting to recommend approval of a request by Mike and Jodie Pendleton for a curb cut on the south side of W Wilshire Boulevard.
This will allow the applicants to install an entrance about 745 feet east of N Sara Road (Oklahoma City alignment) at Yukon city limits.
The property has been in the Pendleton family for years, but they haven’t had access off Wilshire.
The Pendleton’s want “direct access into that land rather than using someone else’s driveway,” Jody Pendleton told commissioners.
They wish to utilize gravel and not concrete for the drive, according to the curb cut application.
The subject property covers 8.16 acres and the Pendleton’s own another 21 acres connected on the east side.
In open discussion near the end of the meeting, Hort told planning commissioners that the city planning staff has the City of Yukon code update almost ready to present.
The Yukon Planning Commission will review the document before making a recommendation to the city council. Digital and printed copies will be made available.
