Jennifer Thomas, City Planning, discussed the preliminary plat of Kelly Kove the project is near Blue Ridge Cut off and 51st Street. It proposes 19 single family lots and one storm water detention. There are some opponents to the project because of the lots sizes and the type of storm water detention system chosen for the project. Councilman Fairfield asked about the type of detention system that would be used in the project. Todd Polk, Phoenix Engineer, explained that the type of detention system being used for the project is not unusual and does meet all the cities requirement. He added that the system would be 4ft deep, it would have angled wall to aid in recovery if there should every be a need to rescue someone. They had chosen this type of detention system because it is the least invasive and storm water will be collect and redirect or eliminate. The water at its peak will be eliminated in about a 2 hour period. Travis Kiefer, Public Works agreed with Mr. Polk that the type of system was probably the best for the project and that Mr. Polk had described the type of system accurately. Councilwoman Cooper asked what would keep children from drowning in the detention basin system. Mr. Polk said that they would be willing to add fencing because the system is at the rear of the property and it would be unlikely. Don Kelly, Don Construction, stated that the type of detention is "typical" for the size and scope of the project and that he would be willing to add fencing and landscaping as a comprise. Robert Osborne, resident and opponent, described the detention system as an unhealthy pit. He added that it would be an eye sore, unsafe and unhealthy for the residents and their children. He shared photo's of a detention system similar to the one being proposed in this project. He also shared a report by the City Auditor that he believed supported his position against using open detention basins. Catherine Rinker, resident, stated that she owned a lot that was near the proposed detention system and she would be disappointment to see the detention take away for the beauty and usefulness of that lot. She said that children in the area used the lot as a make shift park and were safe playing there but if the detention system was in place it would become unsafe. There was much discussion about the detention system options. Don Kelly, Don Construction, stated that he believed that they had chosen the best detention options. He said that piping run off water which is what the neighbors were suggested would create an even greater risk to a larger number of people. Mr. Kelly and Mr. Polk stated that they believed that they had the support of Councilman Riley and Councilwoman Nace. Mr. Kelly restated that he was willing to compromise and would add landscaping to the detention site and preserve as many trees with in the project as possible. However the issue with the road was beyond the scope of the project and was a problem long before this project began. He said that he didn't believe that this project would add to that problem. There was additionally discussion. The developer asked for advancement.
