Mr. Wylde had a concern with the number of people walking in the fragile dune area at the Point. It was discussed that a walkway be built to guide the pedestrian traffic to the walkway and to stay off the dunes. Mr. Allen said he thought that should be able to be worked out.



Mr. Tom Strickland represented this project. After considerable discussion regarding stormwater runoff a motion was made by Jess Randall to recommend approval to the Town Board of the Preliminary Plat. The motion died for lack of a second. Discussion continued further regarding the stormwater runoff, the placing of additional fire hydrants, and to correct the 575’ ORW line indicated is in error and should be deleted. It was noted that DOT requires that the four lots share two drives. Lot 2 has an existing drive that will be turned slightly to accommodate lot 1; and lots 3 and 4 will share a drive. Two additional hydrants are to be installed; one at the corner of Ocean and Emerald Drive, and the second in the Watersedge Mobile Home Park to also help with coverage at the park. Mr. Strickland advised the Stormwater Plan and Sedimentation and Erosion Plans are being done by Mr. Joseph Donehoo, Oceanside Engineering. Because of the concern for stormwater plan, Mr. Smith made the motion to refer this project back to Review Committee on December 15, 1999; second by Roy Brownlow with unanimous approval in favor of the motion.
