WINFIELD — Kris Anderson, president of Providence Real Estate Development, on June 14 asked for and received on from the Winfield Plan Commission secondary plat approval for Phase 2A of Stonegate Development.
Phase 2A will be the southeast end of the property on the east side of Randolph Street at the old train tracks on the town’s southeast side.
There are only 12 lots in this phase and they are on a total of 5.65 acres, including the infrastructure improvements.
Eight lots will back onto Randolph Street, then the street takes a swing to the west with three lots north of the new road and one lot south of the new road backing up to the old railroad tracks. The railroad embankment is there along Randolph but the train is long gone.
According to engineer Brad Moore, the roadway will be 700 linear feet with a hammerhead turn around at the end. The street will continue around the subdivision in future phases. Right now the hammerhead is there to allow the big fire trucks enough room to turn around.
Michael Duffy, town engineer from DLZ engineering, told the commissioners that Providence would need to provide the town with bonds or a letter of credit for the performance bond, which he figured at $311,566.20.
Commissioner Bill Bizanes asked if the lift stations would be big enough to handle this.
Duffy said yes, but the developer is investigating turning over the entire system to the town.
Councilman and president of the commission Gerry Steiner said, “Right now? That is a problem.” Usually infrastructure is not accepted into the town until an entire subdivision is completed.
The secondary plat for Phase II A was approved.
Anderson said that she is only newly with Providence but does handle all of the properties in Winfield and Crown Point.
