Holiday Island planners caution contractor on past poor compliance of other franchisees

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

HOLIDAY ISLAND -- The Holiday Island Planning Commission (HIPC) did a brisk business in permits at its Oct. 26 meeting in the absence of members John Rauber and Kevin Crosson.

Brad Black of United-Bilt Homes approached the commission for a permit to build a 1,208-square-foot house at 149 Stateline Drive for property owners Nathan and Rachel Nowlin.

Black submitted a complete set of plans, including plans showing the location of the HVAC system and location of smoke detectors. Building Inspector Morris Dillow was impressed and said he would like to use those plans as a good example.

Notwithstanding such praise, members of the commission cautioned Black that HIPC has had poor rules compliance with other United-Bilt franchisees in the past, especially with site cleanup and meeting permit deadlines. Black said he was aware of prior problems. He has not taken out a permit in Holiday Island before.

Permit #2179 was approved for 180 days.

In other business, HIPC:

* Approved Permit #2178 for 180 days, pending receipt of a road damage permit, to Corky Comstock and Jeff Gay of Hillside Builders to build a 1,600-square-foot spec house at 8 Hickory Lane.

* Approved Permit #2180 for 90 days, pending receipt of a road damage permit, to Steve Ryan to build a 1,200-square-foot detached garage at his home at 140 Valley Drive.

* Approved a fence at 125 Table Rock Drive to Cindy Galvan on behalf of property owners Marty and Elise Roenigk.

* Discussed enclosing a deck at 58 Cypress Point Lane with property owner Roland Robins.

* Discussed replacing a mobile home at 3 Lunar Lane with property owner Olga Jensen.

At its Oct. 19 meeting, HIPC:

* Approved the addition of a deck to 43 Oak Point Drive for property owners Charlotte and Lyle Bonner, with approval from the Oak Point I Townhome Association.

* Discussed the International Building Code requirement on railing height, which is 42 inches.
