THE SALINA JOURNAL SALINA PLANNING COMMISSION WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 1998 A3- Planners cut townhomes from development jPlan for Magnolia, dike ihpusing moves forward rtp city commission By CRISTINA JANNEY '.The Salina Journal j- _ The Salina Planning Commission approved zoning, a preliminary plat and annexation for a 57-acre subdivision in southeast Salina, but without the developers' request for townhome zoning. River Trail developers David Tillberg and Cheryl Tillberg Murray and Golden Eagle devel- ppers Dan Meinhardt and Tim jHowison cooperated to propose a (subdivision with 142 residential •lot§, 44 of which were to be for itownhomes. The subdivision would be located north of Magnolia Road iand west of the flood levee. ! City planners expressed con- |cern about not only the size of the townhome lots but also their location along the levee, and away jfrom a major street. I IThat could lead to higher traffic Jin: the surrounding single-family [neighborhood. £The townhome lots were pjanned as 70 feet wide, but most recent townhomes have been built on lots 80 feet or wider, said Dean Andrew, assistant director of planning. "Townhomes built recently in this community would not fit in that width," Andrew said. John Heline, a representative of the Tillbergs, said the the lots were narrow but 140 feet deep. The lots had to be laid out in that way because of the shape of property, he said. Widening the lots could hurt their marketability by increasing their price, Heline said. New townhomes on larger lots are selling for $125,000 or more, more than the River Trail lots could be marketed at, Heline said. Commissioner Abner Perney said he was concerned the narrow lots would not have enough on-street parking. He questioned if people would pay $70,000 or $80,000 for small townhomes with little parking and no basements as would be required by the lots' close proximity to the levee. He suggested the area be zoned entirely for single-family homes, which gained unanimous approval from fellow commissioners. Approval of the single-family zoning does not preclude the developers from applying for a zoning change that would allow the townhomes. The plat approved by the commission is a cooperative project of the developers of the Golden Eagle and River Trail addi- tions.The developments will share the use of an old oxbow for drainage. The addition plans must next receive approval of the city commission. JUNE 13,1998 KENWOOD PARK Age brackets in the 5- and 2-mile runs.

Box 800 Salina, KS 67402-0800 Hospital wins approval of its plan to put a heliport downtown By CRISTINA JANNEY Tile Salina Journal Salina patients soon may be precious minutes closer to the medical care they need. The Salina Planning Commission Tuesday approved a proposal by Salina Regional Health Center to locate an air ambulance heliport in a parking lot west of the emergency room entrance at the Santa Fe campus in downtown Salina. Air ambulances now land a 10- minute ambulance ride away from the hospital at Salina Airport. A neighbor, Calvin Johnson, 420 S. Eighth, said he was concerned about the safety of a helicopter flying into a highly populated area near his home. "I have faith in the equipment and pilots, but accidents happen," said Johnson, whose house is across the street from the proposed heliport. "I would prefer they not land on my house." He said he was also concerned about a liquid oxygen tank that would be moved closer to his home and a continuing problem with lack of on-street parking along Eighth Street. Hospital representative Jack Hinnenkamp said the oxygen tank was moved to meet fire protection standards but did not pose a risk to nearby residents or passers-by. Helicopter flight tends to have a lower accident rate than standard airplanes, Hinnenkamp said, because of precautions such as twin engines and more rigorous training for pilots. The hospital heliport will be used only for medical transports, he said. In terms of parking, Hinnenkamp said the hospital was continuing to look at providing additional parking at the Santa Fe campus, including a possible THE RICK MACH SHOW 4pm-5pm Weekdays parking garage sometime in the future. The hospital relies on air transport to move about 36 patients a year, most of whom are infants or head-injury victims. Traffic, including ambulance traffic, would be temporarily restricted when the helicopters are landing or taking off. The heliport plan still must be approved by the Salina City Commission. The commission also approved a 12,560-square-foot expansion of the hospital's inpatient surgical facilities. No new operating rooms will be added, but the extra space will enable the hospital to upgrade facilities. Other business Also Tuesday, the commission: • Tabled a final plat for a shopping center to be located on 33 acres at the corner of Schilling, and Ninth streets. • Tabled a request by Jerrold Cossette for a replat of a residential addition of about 10 acres east of Marymount Road and south of Crawford Street. • Approved a final plat filed by Timberline Property requesting a replat for one lot west of Republic Avenue and between Sunset Manor Addition and the Union Pacific railroad tracks,. The replat involved a drainage T change for a proposed apartment' complex.
