Jerry Thomas presented the Kris Subdivision. A discussion was held concerning the lack of a Component I Planning Module and the lack of the subdivision containing the required statement from the subdivision ordinance concerning private streets. Don Knopsnyder said they would consider the 4 lot subdivision but they wanted it understood that there will be no further subdivisions and no further residential construction on these parcels once they are divided according to the statement on the subdivision indicating that they are subdividing for agricultural purposes. Don Knopsnyder made a motion to table the subdivision pending receipt of the proper documentation of the Component I Planning Module and the addition of the statement concerning private streets. Seconded by Laird Rager. All in favor. Motion passed.

Al Gaily asked if they could amend the subdivision ordinance to require that plans be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the meeting so that they everyone would have an opportunity to review them prior to the meeting. Everyone agreed that would be a good idea. Bruce Baker said they could do that when they do the updated subdivision.
