Final plat, construction agreement with Sam’s approved

U.S. 169 Overlay District and Capital Improvement Priorities also OK’d

OWASSO —  

On Tuesday, the Owasso City Council unanimously approved the final plat for the Willis Farms Addition (Sam’s Club) and the Construction Agreement between the Owasso Public Works Authority (OPWA) and Sam’s Real Estate Business Trust.
The plat located northeast of the intersection at 96th St. N. and 129th E. Ave., consists of six lots on 30 acres, 18 of those acres will be used to construct a 136,000 square foot Sam’s Club. Five additional lots will be prepared and available for retail and business uses.
“Cross access easements are proposed to provide internal access to the smaller lots, ensuring that no additional curb cuts are made onto E. 96th St. N.,” City Planner Bronce Stephenson said in a memo to the council. “Four driveways are proposed along E. 96th St. N. and two driveways along the service road at the west of the subject property.”
Three residents from the Windsor Lake subdivision were present to address the council regarding concerns about the development.
They sited increased traffic, light and noise as potential problems for their neighborhood.
Windsor Lake homeowner Greg Alberty asked the council to consider imposing restrictions on the developer, including lighting requirements, monument signage, and a buffering wall between the development and residential areas. 
“These (homes) are investments; these are families,” he said. “There will be hundreds of people affected by this. There’s a balancing act between economic development and appeasing residents.”
City Manager Rodney Ray said that engineering studies to address light, noise and pollution have yet to be done. He assured the residents that they will have ample time for input throughout the planning process.
“Any development that occurs on the subject property must adhere to all subdivision, zoning and engineering requirements including, but not limited to paved streets, landscaping and sidewalks,” Stephenson’s memo explained.
