The Village of Shiloh Planning Commission unanimously approved a request for the final plat of the Villages at Wingate phase five portion of the planned unit development.

Planning Commission board member Howard Steffey was absent, while other board members B.J. Berger, Vince Kwiatkowski, John Lee and PC Chairman Brian Manion qualified as a quorum. Village Clerk Brenda Kern, and Village Administrator John Marquart were present.

Thouvenot, Wade and Moerchen Inc. (TWM) Planning Engineer Marsha Maller said a rough estimate of the number of lots to still be developed is about 80 remaining of the initial 268.

Since 2007 the Villages of Shiloh Villages at Wingate planned unit development has been underway.

“After this phase (five) we have three left still to go,” Maller said.

This final plat matches the four already approved plats for their respective phase, Maller noted.

“Additionally, all of the construction plans for the Wingate subdivision were approved by one review for the entire development. Wingate was approved under one umbrella, but constructed and platted in different phases,” Maller said.

The developer is TTW LLC., based in Swansea. The two-year maintenance guarantee bond and legal assurance for completion of improvements has yet to be completed. The bond will come after construction is finished.

“Over the course of the past 10 years they have been developing the residential lots on the approximate 170 acres off Green Mount Road,” Maller said.

Phase five is located in the north east corner of the development and accounts for 14 lots.

“They’re finishing up the streets, paving them this week, so hopefully by the time this goes to the board meeting we will have the construction done, reviewed and a punch list so we can get the final plat going. We have three lots that are currently under contract (for purchase), so that is good news,” Maller said.

Marquart said, all the improvements in terms of the infrastructure has previously been approved.

Manion inquired about who will be responsible for maintaining the detention pond and green space.

“All of the outlots will be maintained by the Home Owner’s Association once the HOA becomes the predominant owner will take ownership of all the outlots. I think there are ten or eleven of them throughout the subdivision. Right now it’s still in the hands of the developer because of the number of lots that are still out there,” Maller said.

The next meeting is slated for 7 p.m. at Village Hall, at One Park Drive, for the Shiloh Board of Trustees Committee at Large meeting.
