Representing the applicant, Regional Operations Manager Scott McMahon, 6175 Main St. Frisco TX, 75034, for Cole and Associates, talked through the changes and remaining conditions of the agenda item.

Vice-Chair Ron Trees asked Mr. McMahon if there will be an HOA and if there is, will the entire development have a single HOA or will it be a separate HOA for the part in Little Elm. Mr. McMahon, stated that there will likely be a main HOA for the entire development, and a sub HOA for the specific part in Little Elm.

Vice-Chair Ron Trees opened the public hearing at 6:17pm. 

Valerie Freeman, 9920 Cherokee Oaks Rd, had questions regarding the retaining wall running across Cherokee Oaks Road and the timeline of the process for establishing erosion controls. 

Mr. McMahon stated that he did not have an exact answer on the wall height next to Cherokee Oaks Road, but that initial erosion control happens early on in the process and that the erosion control features would be finished out later.

Vice-Chair Ron Trees closed the public hearing at 6:21pm. 

Commissioner Horn wanted clarification on the location of the stub-out and the fencing type. Staff clarified that it wouldn't connect to Cherokee Oaks and that the fencing would be wrought iron by the pond. 

Commissioner Ocelli wanted clarification on the board-on-board fencing location versus the wrought iron fencing location. Staff provided clarification on the types of fences and their locations.

Motion: Approve the requested PD request with the following condition:
  • The landscape plan shall be replaced with the revised plan showing board on board fencing consistently around the perimeter of the property.
