Barringer opened the meeting and declared a quorum present. Rogers made a motion to approve the minutes from the February 10, 2011 meeting. The motion was seconded by Day and approved by a 4/0 vote.

There were no Zoning applications to consider.

David Ezzell of the Health Department presented a program on types of Misenheimer soils and possible septic systems. He brought a soil map which showed that most of the municipality had poor soil. A typical septic system costs $5,000-$6,000 but for Misenheimer, it may go as high as $30,000. Similarly a septic system typically requires 8,000 to 10,000 square feet for the system and it’s replacement but for Misenheimer, a septic system and replacement space may require as much as 20,000-30,000 square feet.

The information provided by Mr. Ezzell will help the Planning Board make recommendations for development lot sizes as the current Zoning Ordinance is reviewed.

Riemann presented information on the state maintained roads in the Village. Davidcyn Apartment Drive, Glenmore Road, Reeves Island Road and Wesley Chapel road all have 60’ right-of-way. U.S. 52 through Pfeiffer has 60’ right-of-way but has no right-of-way elsewhere. The drive to Gray Stone School has 50’ right-of-way. This information will be helpful in sidewalk planning because Powell Funds can only be used on public road right-of-way. DOT has indicated that curb and gutter sidewalk along state maintained roads is usually not approved.

There no pending Zoning application decisions.

Rogers made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Henderson seconded the motion which was approved 4/0.
