Aldermen unanimously approved the concept plan for one subdivision and waivers from the subdivision ordinance for another subdivision at their meeting Oct. 20.
Aldermen approved the concept plan for Salado Mills, a ±64.66 acre, 3-phase (Phase I existing), residential subdivision located in the Village’s extraterritorial jurisdiction. Aldermen asked the developer if there had been any discussion of the subdivision voluntarily annexing into the Village. Aldermen also asked about whether the roads would be privately or publicly maintained. The developer said that they first thought of it being a gated community with private roads, but opted not to close the subdivision and the roads would be maintained by the county.
The board also approved the request for waivers from Section 3.1(0) for street/block length, Section 3.4(b) blocks and Section 3.1(h)2 streets of the Subdivision Ordinance for Windmill Estates, a proposed subdivision in the Village extra territorial jurisdiction. The board approved the waiver contingent on the developer requiring hammerhead driveways or other forms to mitigate backing in to a collector street.
Salado Police Officer Sid Post’s promotion to Corporal was ratified by aldermen following an executive session Oct. 20. Post will receive about $3,600 in back pay for pay increase that was supposed to come with the promotion in November 2015.
