HIGH SPRINGS ‒ The proposed Springfield Subdivision has received approval of its preliminary plat. The High Springs Commission voted unanimously in favor of plat approval at the Sept. 10 meeting. The item was previously approved by the Planning and Zoning Board. The subdivision is located off Poe Springs Road, just west of Cinnamon Hills Subdivision.

“Water will be provided to the subdivision,” said Fire Chief Bruce Gillingham, “but sewer will not be available,” he said. There is no service line in the general area. There are feeder lines, but no service lines according to Gillingham.

“We also have an issue with the lift station size that feeds Cinnamon Hills,” he said. “Currently, it won’t support any more homes in that area outside of Cinnamon Hills.” As the City does expansions, Gillingham says “we will need to hook this subdivision into the system once we expand the sewer system out that way.”

Gillingham said that staff recommends approving the subdivision as is.

Commissioner Scott Jamison commented that his main concern had been addressed by Gillingham. “I was trying to figure out why this subdivision was being allowed to have septic rather than requiring them to hook up to sewer,” said Jamison. “Since they are not within 200 feet of the main line, we cannot ask them to connect,” he said.

Jamison moved and Commissioner Nancy Lavin seconded the motion to approve the preliminary plat and the motion was unanimously approved.
