Review the proposed Final Plat of the Eshom’s
Addition, a replat of Lots 52 and 54 of Revised No. 2 Mecca Acres Subdivision.
Approved by Subdivision Committee on February 14, 2006.
Les Mangus explained this plat was approved by the
Subdivision Committee in February and was recommended for approval with some
minor changes as noted in the staff checklist and the satisfaction of the
requirement for public water and paved streets. Since that time, a benefit

frontage on Morris Street, but the Subdivision Regulations require a 25’
setback on all sides that abut a street.
Byron Stout made
a motion to approve this final plat provided they meet staff comments. Lynn Heath seconded the motion. Motion carried 5/0.
