planning committee discusses installing survey monuments
By Shauna Smith
February 24, 2006 | MILLVILLE -- City planner Greg
Scott told the Planning and Zoning Committee Thursday
that the mayor has requested survey monuments be put
in at the time of building new subdivisions.
No monument system currently exists, but the City
Council is looking into it. Millville can't afford the
approximately $40,000 to place monuments throughout
the whole town, but they expect that the requirement
of monument placing in new subdivisions will be a good
starting point. Later on monuments will be set in the
old parts of town.
The committee discussed whether the requirement would
affect only major subdivisions or both major and minor.
They also examined whether the requirement would be
added to the curb and gutter design standards or into
the checklist of the subdivision ordinance.
"What we need to do is have it in ordinance form,"
said Planning Commissioner Jim Hart, "then have a public
hearing and send it to the city council."
No formal decision was made.
In other business, the committee approved zoning clearance
for two houses in the Shire subdivision. One is located
on 598 N. 200 East and the other on 590 N. 200 East.
Another zoning clearance approval was given to Cook
Brothers Construction to build a house on 155 E. 600
North. After each approval, Hart reminded each requester
of the "smells" and "flies" in Millville.
"Millville city's motto is country living at its finest,"
The next planning and zoning meeting will be held
