In a fi­nal act be­fore ad­journ­ing a brief Pea Ridge Plan­ning Com­mis­sion

Mon­day night, city of­fi­cials agreed to sched­ule a spe­cial

Plan­ning Com­mis­sion meet­ing for de­vel­oper

Kevin Fel­gen­hauer.

Fel­gen­hauer, who was not on the agenda, asked the city of­fi­cials to sched­ule a spe­cial meet­ing to con­sider the fi­nal plat of Willow Run sub­di­vi­sion so he could have it pre­sented to the City Coun­cil at the July 17 meet­ing. Fel­gen­hauer told plan­ners he had com­pleted his work on the project ex­cept for see­ing and had de­cided to use light poles from Car­roll Elec­tric. He had re­quested a vari­ance at the last Plan­ning Com­mis­sion meet­ing. Plan­ners agreed to the spe­cial meet­ing for which Fel­gen­hauer will pay.

There was no old busi­ness to con­sider.

Plan­ners ap­proved a pro­posal by Jon Gal­bavi to move a house onto a lot on Greene Street.

Gal­bavi told plan­ners he pur­chased a house from Car­roll Elec­tric that was set to be de­mol­ished and planned to move it to a lot he had pur­chased on Greene Street near the in­ter­sec­tion with

We­ston Street. He said he had al­ready re­ceived a lot split. The house is 30 feet wide and Gal­bavi said the state will not is­sue a permit for any­thing wider than 28 feet so he plans to cut the house in two to move it.

Plan­ner Jerry Bur­ton asked about Pea Ridge po­lice ap­proval. Po­lice Capt. Chris Ol­son said if the state is­sues per­mits, the only con­cern lo­cally would be whether there are over­head lines that may be dam­aged.

In re­sponse to ques­tions from plan­ners, Gal­bavi said he plans to clean up the lots and even­tu­ally add an­other res­i­dence there for a rental.

“I’ve been look­ing for some in­vest­ments and had rentals in the past,” he said. “Now that I’m re­tired… I’m start­ing to look at other things. Pea Ridge re­ally sticks out to me that it needs some qual­ity rentals.”

In other busi­ness, plan­ners ap­proved a vari­ance re­quest in­volv­ing a 10foot rear set­back for Chris Ol­son at 1225 Nemett Cir­cle for in­stal­la­tion of a pool.
