Greeno called for any other comments, Tony Snyder, 1656 Broadmoor Ct., asked a question about the cost of the houses. Shan Sheridan confirmed that the cost would be approximately $170,000-$200,000 and that the houses would meet the covenant standards of that subdivision. Mr. Snyder expressed displeasure with the requirements of the subdivision covenants and homeowners association in the Southridge Subdivision that will add $25 per year to his drainage fees. This cost is associated with the new detention pond.
Richard Leland, 1636 Broadmoor Ct, expressed concern about the number of homes being planned in a subdivision with a single entrance and exit. He believes this will create a traffic risk.

Kyle Betz with Fisher Engineering confirmed that the draining plan has been designed so that run-off water associated with Phase II will remain on Phase II and will not encroach on Phase I homes or land.
