Riffel, who owns about 19 acres of land in the southwest corner of the intersection, plans to remove the moving and storage business he has on the land to capitalize on its proximity to Interstate 135. The planning commission approved three measures at its Wednesday afternoon meeting: a proposal to change the land's zoning to planned highway commercial, a preliminary layout of the land after improvements and streets are completed, and a recommendation to the city commission in favor of annexing the 17.67 acres of Riffel's land not within the city limits. The final approval of the three requests will have to be given by the city commission. Roy Dudark, director of planning and community development, said Riffel's plans agree with the city's revised comprehensive plan, which outlines where commercial and industrial developments are acceptable. The original version of the plan called for light industrial south of Schilling Road, which had been the cutoff point for commercial development to the south. SCHILLING AY 8 NIN OLD HIG I Norman Riffel's \ 19 acres Darrell Hills' 18 acres — "" ™ Proposed road closing New road Riffel Drive , _ _ I ...... "117 Since then, Dudark said, the Schilling Road interchange for Interstate 135 changed the city's plans. He said commercial zoning is perfect for the highly accessible intersection. "That generated the Sam's Club development and Wal-Mart and so forth," he said. "We see that corner, with the interchange, as being commercial." City planners now see the cutoff between light industrial and commercial as south of the Ninth Street and 1-135 access ramps. Darrell Hills, who owns the Mid- State Mall and plans to develop 18 acres of agriculture land directly south of Riffel's land, said he was concerned about plans to close a frontage road that connects his property with Schilling Road. Riffel's preliminary plat shows a new road — Riffel Drive — that loops from Schilling Road to Ninth. The frontage road would be destroyed, but Dudark said the part extending to Hill's land would connect with Riffel Drive. "When I purchased the property, I was given to understand that that was a permanent right of way," said Hills, who has plans to allow commercial development on his land. "This might have a major influence on what I do with the property," he said. Dudark said the access road may be moved to the west, but it would not be cut off. Assistant director of planning Dean Andrew said Riffel, or the buyers of the 12 lots on the property, would have to pay for new sewer and water lines, the street, a wastewater pump station and other utilities. Don Darling, a Salina resident who has been outspoken at city meetings about policies affecting drainage and stormwater, said too much stormwater is being direct- ed to Dry Creek. Runoff from Riffel's development, which contains a detention pond, would eventual-, ly be diverted to Dry Creek. "I have no objection to any annexation or development of any area, as long as the planning coin- mission can satisfy the citizens df Salina that the floodplain manage; ment is taken care of," said Darling, 1036 Scott. "I know that I am a minority in numbers, but should the govern; ing bodies keep ignoring thlg problem, eventually my research, will find a way to make the ditty pay for my trouble." '. r ' Riffel must present a drainage survey to the city as part of the final site plan, before it is approved by city commissioners.
