Earlier this month members of the Plymouth Plan Commission considered the request to approve phase III of the South Point Subdivision by Wenzel Industries Inc.

Del Wenzel told members the residential subdivision on South Michigan Road started in 1996.  In 1997 the first phase was developed, in 2000 the subdivision expanded and in 2012 the second phase was approved.  The final phase creates 16 more building lots and the drainage plan is currently under review. 

Plan Commission member, Angie Rupchock-Schafer asked if sidewalks were included in the final phase of the development and Plan Director Ralph Booker said the development was grandfathered in before the requirement of sidewalks. 

During the public hearing, neighbor Tom Hellinga who lives on Ridgeview Drive questioned the access road that goes toward the south.  He was told it was required by the city in case another subdivision was developed on the south side, it would allow access to 12th Road. 

The Plymouth Plan Commission approved the secondary plat.  It must go before the Marshall County Commissioners for acceptance of the roadway. 

The Plymouth Plan Commission approved the request by a 6 to 1 vote with Rupchock-Shafer voting no.
