Center Point again tables business plan discussion

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

The Center Point Planning Commission decided Tuesday to hold off on voting on a controversial business plan for another month.

Road Runner Resources, Inc., and its legal council, presented a revised business plan in January at a public hearing, but neighbors to the property and the board felt the proposal was incomplete.

The planning commission and Road Runner have been engaged in a lawsuit since November 2007 over the maintenance of the property where the company operates.

Julie Schmitt, legal representative for operators Joe and Wendy Roe and owners Bill and Patricia Kirchner, presented the board with an updated business proposal before the meeting.

During the meeting, Schmitt addressed questions sent to her Tuesday afternoon by legal council for Michael and Susan Miles, neighbors of the Road Runner property.

The Miles were not present at the meeting.

Schmitt said the concerns presented to her Tuesday had no bearing on the property, and caused her and planning commission lawyer Eric Somheil to spend extra time researching the validity of the claims.

Beth and Rick Payne, also neighbors of the property, asked the board to define what acceptable clean up of the Road Runner site would look like.

Because the board did not have enough time to read through the entire revised business plan, along with the proposed resolution and additional materials, it did not waive rules requiring two readings of the proposal.

Somheil read the resolution ending the lawsuit and accepting the business proposal, and the board approved it as the first reading of the resolution.

A vote will be taken after the second reading at the March 18 meeting of the Center Point Planning Commission, at 7 p.m., Center Point Town Hall.
