Meeting: Jasper Plan Commission

The Jasper Plan Commission met Wednesday and:

• Granted Kerstiens Development Inc. primary approval of a proposed plat for Autumn Creek III, a development that would bring a new development of condominiums to the area near Reyling Drive and 34th Street. Before the board’s approval, nearby residents again expressed concerns regarding increased traffic and the potential of increased flooding problems in the area. After seeing photos taken during a rain event, Council members questioned the ability of the city’s sanitary infrastructure in the area to handle an additional load, to which City Engineer Chad Hurm said the issues are being addressed. Before work on the development can begin, a secondary approval of the plat and a final approval of the planned unified development ordinance must be given by the commission.

• Heard that Marty Vaught resigned from the commission after three years due to personal reasons. His replacement will be appointed by Mayor Dean Vonderheide.
