Meeting Minutes from Monday, August 2, 2004


5:00 p.m. August 2, 2004

A workshop was held August 2, 2004 at the Nederland City Office Building, 1400 Boston Avenue, Nederland, Texas.

MEMBERS PRESENT: C. J. Schexnaider, Tim Sheffield, Jack Porter, Mark Griffin and Homer Nagel
CITY STAFF PRESENT: Debby Griffin, Inspections Department Secretary

An ordinance has been designed revising Chapter 94, Subdivision of the City of Nederland's Code of Ordinances to include a section regulating private street and private subdivision development.

Private Subdivision Development - There are a number of pieces of property within the city limits of Nederland that cannot be developed due to the requirements of Section 12D of the Nederland Zoning Ordinance. Section 12D required that a residential piece of property to be developed must have a 30' section of that property abutting an improved dedicated street accepted by the City.

In order to develop property that does not meet the requirement of this section the staff has designed an ordinance that would allow for private streets and private subdivisions.

The Board had questions about the upkeep of a private road in a subdivision. It is the responsibility of the property owners/association for the upkeep of the road, property and utilities. If a sewer line would break and the association did not take care of it and it became a health hazard the City would then intervene. The Board agreed with how the ordinance was written.
