COPPERAS COVE — The city’s planning and zoning commission met Monday to discuss recommendations and possible action related to projects with the Skyline Drive improvements and the final plat of the reserve at the Skyline Mountain subdivision.

Under discussion was the right of way and roadway width for a portion of the street improvements associated with the final plat for the reserve.

Developers recommended a set of entry features that conflicted with pavement and right of way widths, but the panel approved portions of an alternate plan that would reduce the lane width, provided a minimum clearance of 24 feet was maintained to allow emergency vehicles, large trucks and solid waste transport enough clearance to not impede free movement along the route.

Also on the agenda was the final plat of the reserve. When the city identified funding sources to include the vacated Mesa Verde plat, a preliminary plat was entered with the city for consideration. It included the consideration of a storm water detention, a temporary fire access road and a loop road with future development. Portions of these also were approved Monday.

Both items will go before the Copperas Cove City Council for further action during a regularly meeting in March.
