Council approves small subdivision

Print Article

Whitefish City Council last week approved a small subdivision on Whitefish Avenue.

Carolina Homes requested a preliminary plat in order to develop a nine-lot subdivision known as Whitefish Landing on Whitefish Avenue near the intersection of Akers Lane. The property is just less than an acre in size, currently undeveloped and zoned two-family residential.

The lots will range between .1 acres and .3 acres in size and will each have driveways along Whitefish Avenue.

Councilor Richard Hildner asked that as a condition of approval street trees as part of the development not be planted until homes are constructed in the subdivision.

Im concerned about the street trees, he said. I dont want to happen here what happened at the end of Texas Avenue where the trees were planted and never watered because there wasnt homes.

Council added a condition that the developer must pay cash-in-lieu for street trees so that the city can plant the trees at the appropriate time.

Council also:

• Approved beginning the process to increase water and wastewater rates for the city. Whitefish in 2015 completed a rate study that suggested it increase its water and wastewater rates to cover the cost of services being provided. A public hearing on the rate increases will be held before Council on Monday, Oct. 1.

• Approved a request to rezone one parcel annexed into the city limits from county residential to suburban residential. The property is located at 2030 Highway 93 West.

• Approved a request to rezone three parcels annexed into the city from county two-family residential to city two-family residential. The parcels are along State Park Road and Salmon Run.
