Townhouses inbound: Planning and Zoning commision approves Sandbar Estates plats

first_img     The South Padre Island Planning and Zoning Commission held a special meeting Thursday, January 30, to elect new officials and approve requests for final plats and replats of two different lot areas on the Island.      Previously, Patrick McNulty served as chair of the Planning and Zoning Board, relinquishing the position when he was elected as SPI mayor last year. At that time, Gary Olle was named chair in the interim, with no vice-chair put in place due to an agenda oversight.      On Thursday, Olle was nominated by his fellow commission members to retain his position as chair, with commission member Gordon “Bob” Garlock accepting the nomination as vice-chair.     Discussion then moved to the approval of the final plat of lots 1 through 16, block 1, known as the Sandbar Estates.      South Padre Island Planning Director Aaron Hanley addressed the Planning and Zoning Commission, saying “This one came before you several times in the past. This is Sandbar Estates, to the north in the ETJ (extra territorial jurisdiction) which I’m sure everybody’s pretty familiar with.”     Hanley continued, explaining “The preliminary plat was approved November 17, 2016. Then they had several extensions but essentially, they were not allowed any more extensions and the preliminary approval expired, which is why they’re coming before you again. Nothing’s changed, the Public Works director has done the final approval, it meets all the city’s codes and ordinances, so staff recommends approval.”     Chair Olle commented, saying “I know they’ve got public utilities and water and sewage. And apparently, electricity goes through the area, so they’re ready to go, basically.”     Hanley confirmed this statement, adding “The County does have to approve this again, so this will be going to the County next for approval. It’s different from a regular plat that’s within our city limits that’s just getting recorded for the clerk. This actually has to go in front of the Commissioner’s Court for approval.”     The only other item of business on the agenda was discussion and action regarding the proposed replat of Lot 4, Block 162, Padre Beach Subdivision, section XI, to create two lots, lots 4A and 4B.     Olle questioned Hanley, asking “There will be townhouses built on those lots, right?” with Hanley confirming, saying “Correct, it’s in neighborhood transition, and townhome is a permitted use of the lot. And this is a final plat, because there’s no required improvements to infrastructure. The sidewalk’s already in place, so it’s ready to go.”      With no objections voiced, the Commission approved the proposed replat. The lots in question are located on Verna Jean Street east of Padre Blvd. Share By Pamela CodySpecial to the PRESScenter_img RelatedP&Z mull extension requestsBy KEVIN RICH Special to the PRESS The South Padre Island Planning and Zoning Commission considered a pair of extension requests during its Thursday, Dec. 21 meeting.

Mourinho gets off to winning start with Spurs

first_imgLONDON (AP):José Mourinho made a winning start to life as Tottenham manager, as his new team beat West Ham 3-2 yesterday for their first away victory in the Premier League in more than 10 months.Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane scored in a 13-minute span around half-time at the Olympic Stadium, with Tottenham, having a spark to their play rarely seen in the final months of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign.That ended on Tuesday, allowing for the return of Mourinho to the Premier League nearly a year after he was fired by Manchester United. He had an instant impact.“Doesn’t matter how, the three points were fundamental for us,” Mourinho said. “The boys are happy and that’s what I wanted. I wanted them back to happiness.”The most obvious effect was the improvement of Dele Alli, who shone in the No. 10 role behind Kane and fed Son with a penetrative pass for the opening goal in the 36th minute.Another deft piece of play by Alli – this time he flicked the ball to Son, while on the ground near the touchline – led to the South Korea forward crossing for Moura to poke home a close-range finish in the 43rd.Kane added the third goal four minutes into the second half when he headed in a right-wing cross by Serge Aurier.“I like very, very much the first 60 minutes,” said Mourinho, who added that fatigue after the international break was a factor in Tottenham allowing West Ham a way back into the game.West Ham pulled goals back through substitute Michail Antonio in the 73rd and Angelo Ogbonna in the sixth and final minute of injury time, but Tottenham did enough to earn a first away win in the league since beating Fulham on January 20. LUCKY “I think we are lucky,” Mourinho said, “that I have so many years in the Premier League, that I told the players at half-time, even if we score 3-0, minute 85 the game will be open. I think they understood that.”On Alli, who has struggled for form this season and hasn’t been selected in recent England squads, Mourinho said: “I’m happy with him. I spent a few minutes with him in training and outside the pitch. And we were saying that the best Dele Alli has to be back.“He’s too good to not be one of the best players in the world and not playing with the national team.”Spurs were in 14th place, 11 points off the top four, when Mourinho took over, but already look a team revitalised under their new manager.Mourinho still has to solve an issue with Christian Eriksen, the Denmark playmaker who has been unsettled this season and started on the bench again against West Ham.“I need to understand what’s in Christian’s mind or heart,” Mourinho said before kick-off, “and we have to make the right decision for the club.”last_img read more

Beer Board rejects permit, for now, for Norris Lake floating beer delivery

first_imgBoaters and fishermen on Norris Lake will have to wait awhile longer to have cold beer delivered to them on the water.  A Knoxville couple applied for a beer license to open a business delivering beer by boat to customers on the water, but the Campbell County Beer Board voted Monday night to deny the permit, because the applicants could not confirm that the lakeside dwelling they have procured as a permanent address for their business is zoned for commercial use.It was evident from questions and discussion that the beer board members had reservations about the application, Zachary Marlow observing, “We’re entering uncharted territory.”Operators of several Norris Lake marinas were present at the meeting and although not directly voicing opposition to the permit, expressed their doubts, including how enforcement would work regarding deliveries that might cross county lines.The applicants had planned initially to operate from a large boat docked near Twin Cove Marina, filling delivery orders with smaller craft. The requirement that the business would need a permanent address resulted in their decision to operate from a dwelling in the vicinity of Twin Cove, but they could not confirm whether the location was zoned commercial.Scott Kitts made a motion to deny the permit until the applicants can provide proof that the location is classified as commercial, and the beer board voted unanimously to deny the permit.During the regular meeting, the commission voted unanimously to approve a request from Highland Telephone Cooperative to allow the Scott County utility to construct poles along Campbell County roadways in Stinking Creek and along Highway 297 in the Elk Valley area for expansion of a broadband network.Highland has obtained a grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission to run broadband services from Scott County to Highway 297, extending internet services to Jellico, Newcomb and Elk Valley, as well as part of Stinking Creek.At last week’s workshop, Highland representatives told commissioners that they would also like to extend their service area along Stinking Creek Road and into Habersham, but the grant money is not currently available. Highland Telephone asked Campbell County to apply for a $900,000 ARC grant to pay for the additional extension of service and the commission will later act on that request.The commission also voted unanimously to transfer unneeded county property in Mount Paran to the Industrial Development Board, which will then lease it to a private business for expansion of their delivery area.Commissioners also discussed the transfer of school department property in the Oak Grove area to the Oak Grove Cemetery for use as a veterans’ burial site. County Attorney Joe Coker explained that the commission can request the school board to approve the transfer, but has no direct control over school department property.The commission also discussed the hiring process for a new Director of Sanitation after Walt Sutton’s retirement at the end of the year. Coker explained that the County Mayor has the power to hire the new director, with the commission having the power to either confirm or reject the Mayor’s choice.Ralph Davis made a motion to bring the Mayor’s decision directly before the full commission, without first being approved by the Sanitation Committee. Surprisingly, his motion narrowly passed, with seven commissioners voting “no.”Finally, commissioners discussed whether the county is always meeting the letter of the law in providing “adequate public notice” of all meetings.Several commissioners expressed doubts that all meetings are adequately announced, which potentially could legally nillify any decisions made at those meetings. A meeting of the Rules & Ethics Committee was scheduled for next Monday, November 26 at 5:00 p.m. to discuss the subject and come up with any necessary recommendations.

With a €40m clause in his contract expiring on July 15th, clubs have under a month if they want to sign Jean-Michael Seri from OGC Nice without having to negotiate a fee.last_img read more

Selkirk College Maintains Connection to Athletics History, Unveils New Logo

first_imgThe college gathered more than 200 thoughts during the process that posed the question: Please explain, in as much detail as you like, how you feel about the name Selkirk College Saints and team’s logo and colours.“We received a broad range of feedback and we appreciate every person who took the time to get involved in the process,” Kincaid says. “It was quite evident that our community cares very much about Selkirk College and Saints athletics. We are excited to maintain our strong connection to our past while forging ahead with a refreshed logo.”Selkirk College currently has one varsity team with student-athletes competing in the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL). When the team opens the regular season in October, players will be wearing a newly designed crest on the fronts of their jerseys. The new look prominently features the mountains that are a geographical symbol of life in the Selkirk College region.“It’s a great new look, the players are going to be proud to pull that jersey over their heads and play for the crest on the front,” says Kim Verigin, Selkirk College’s Department Head for Athletics, Recreation & Student Life. “We will stick with the colours that have come to represent excellence in the BCIHL, but the new logo really reflects our connection to the West Kootenay and Boundary region.”The Saints will unveil their new jerseys when classes resume in September and the BCIHL regular season gets underway in October.Learn more about Selkirk College athletics and recreation at: selkirk.ca/athletics. A fresh look for Selkirk College athletics reflects the rugged beauty of the region while maintaining an important connection to post-secondary history.Earlier this year, the college reached out to students, employees, alumni and community members about the Selkirk College Saints look, logo and name. Through online input and commenting via Rossland-based ThoughtExchange, it was clear that the name Saints should remain in place and a new logo would be welcomed.“This college is part of the fabric of our community and the athletic program is an important element of what we offer to the region,” says Selkirk College Vice President of Students & Advancement John Kincaid. “The outreach has helped determine that many people place high value on the Saints name and the historical connection to the many athletic teams that have proudly represented Selkirk College over the last five decades.”last_img read more

Fighting leukemia is teams’ passion

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREFrumpy Middle-aged Mom: My realistic 2020 New Year’s resolutions. Some involve doughnuts.Today, the Hart High School junior is a cancer survivor, and on Wednesday she spoke at a kickoff fundraiser for blood cancer cures through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Known as “Light the Night Walk,” the national event returns to Santa Clarita for the second year Oct. 15. Carrying balloons with lights, corporate teams, families and volunteers walk two miles around Bridgeport Park with this year’s goal of raising $100,000, said Taly Fantini, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society director of special events. Last year, about 800 people gathered at the park and raised $50,000. This year’s walk is the first for Sandi and Joe Franco and their 8-year-old son Mateo, who was diagnosed with leukemia in September. Nearly 35,000 people each year are diagnosed with the form of cancer that’s characterized by an uncontrolled accumulation of white blood cells. “It impacts every part of your life,” Sandi Franco said. “Every part of our life changed a year ago.” VALENCIA – When 16-year-old Sarah Weichel was diagnosed with cancer, doctors told her to let them worry about the disease and urged her to live life as usual. So she did, despite aggressive chemotherapy treatments. The fair-haired teen danced at her prom, hung out with friends and went out at night like others her age. But one morning, she woke up and found much of her hair on her pillow. Suddenly, her reality of the disease changed. “I realized that day I was sick and I could die if I did not fight with all the strength I had,” she said. The Newhall family will walk with at least 20 others on their team in October. Wearing a button-sized picture of her 11-year-old grandson, Jonnie Lanners, who died three years ago from leukemia, Janet Snyder is on her sixth walk to raise money to find a cure. The Santa Clarita grandmother grinned when she described the boy who was in and out of hospitals for three years and eventually established a toy charity for other kids there. “I’m sad because I lost Jonnie. But if it (the walk) will prevent someone from going through what we did, that’s what it’s all about,” she said. Ana Butler’s mother, Lillith Machado, was 73 when she died of myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that annually strikes nearly 16,000 people, typically at age 67. Machado was in the hospital for months before her diagnosis, with doctors bewildered by her symptoms. By the time the disease was recognized, it was too late for treatment, said Butler, who is forming a team of her five siblings to walk in their mother’s honor. “I want to find a cure,” she said. “We have to carry on.” For more information about the fundraiser, look at: www.lightthenight.org or call (877) 586-9255.
