draft Draft

Public Works Director Craig Dotseth provided a presentation to Council regarding the dedication of utility easement for Warrior Way, Willow Creek Road to Highway 89 at southern edge. He also discussed the expansion of Willow Creek Road south of Warrior Way to it’s connection being designed for realignment of the Willow Creek curve and additional signals will go in as well. Design is currently being worked on for the realignment of the curve and will be delivered later this week at 60%, 4 lane divided with raised center median/tapering and drainage improvements.

Councilman Blair asked for confirmation that the expansion of Willow Creek Road and two signals will be at the cost of the developer.

Mr. Dotseth confirmed that the expansion, lights and development of Warrior Way will be part of developer costs, however, design and adjustment of curve will likely be shared costs..

Councilman Goode commented that when he was on P&Z there was significant discussion and concern with placement of schools and other facilities that would be in a risk zone for aircraft departures, with Trinity School being in the area he would like to hear if that is of concern for them as well.

Interim City Attorney Matt Podracky stated that the item before Council is for the dedication of right-of-way and public utility and that questions regarding the proposed school gets beyond that with regard to public meeting law.

Councilman Goode stated that he felt approval of right-of-way is essentially rubber stamping the development of a school in that area.

Mr. Dotseth stated that based on the map and zoning of the area the school would be outside of that risk area.

Mr. Podrackty recommended that if there is concern regarding Trinity School it be put on a future agenda item, currently Council is revewing the map of dedication and easement.

Councilman Goode commented that without assurance that this school is properly dedicated he will not vote on this item.

Mayor Pro Tem Orr commented that it is her understanding the location of the school was part of the Master Plan and has been planned for for a number of years.

Councilmember Rusing stated that Council would still need to obtain the easement regardless of what type of entity is going in there.
