THIS ITEM WAS STRICKEN FROM THE AGENDA.
21. Consider discussing Scissortail Subdivision Project located
on Flower Mound Road and the
impact of adjacent subdivisions. Exhibits: Letter & Email Correspondence.
Mayor Purcell stated that Councilmember Burk asked that this item be brought back
to the City
Council, but part of the issue has been resolved and Mr. Waggoner has done a great job on
correcting the problem with the entrance. He took down the two obstructions and now all trucks
can get through.
Burk stated there are a lot of citizens that are concerned with NE Euclid which is
an area that has
been affected by construction. He would like to know the plans for that road.
Warren Waggoner, developer for Scissortail Subdivision, stated they sat down with
city staff and
discussed their ability to have limited access. It was their intent to use that access for a limited
amount of activity and leave that entrance open during the day but close the main entrance. He
has done spot repairs on that road as directed by public works. He has no problem repairing
those areas that are a direct result of his activity. He stated garbage trucks, delivery trucks,
use that route, so there is more than just his activity going on with regards to trucks over five
tons. He stated with nearly every subdivision under construction in this town, construction
equipment goes through residential neighborhoods. They develop front to back. He felt
going above and beyond by being willing to repair public streets and roads.
Burk stated that entrance was to be used as an emergency access only and now it is
being used as
a construction entrance. He questioned why this was not brought up during the planning process.
Mr. Waggoner stated when they filed their plat they initially did not have the access
there, but in accordance to city code they have to have two accesses into a residential
subdivision. Because of the storm sewer situation they had at the entrances, it was a lot more
work in the beginning phases of Scissortail. They actually built a lot of the subdivision back
front, so they used that entrance for a year and a half as the construction entrance and he did not
receive any complaints during that time. Once they did start receiving complaints they tried to
move things to the front of the entrance coming around the guard house. He stated phases I and
II are primarily complete and at this point they are talking about five or six homes a year. This
will be a limited amount of traffic and most of the traffic now can be brought through the main
Burk questioned if they received a permit to finish the guard house.
Mr. Waggoner stated once he realized the situation he did get a permit. He
built the guard house
under the subdivision plans and that was his fault. He went to court, paid his fine and received
his permit. He stated that since he took the wings off the guard house, he hopes that will address
the issue with the height restriction on the guard house.
Mayor Purcell stated Mr. Waggoner now has the capability of taking all of the trucks
front entrance off of Flower Mound. He does not understand why all the trucks would not go
through the front as opposed to going through another neighborhood.
Mr. Waggoner stated if the length from Flower Mound to the guard house is almost
The road narrows at the guard house and there is room to turn a fire truck but you don t
room to turn an 18-wheeler load full of brick. If there is a delivery once the gate is completed
and they don t have a gate code, they will have to back up 700 feet to get out of the entrance.
This was designed all along to have a limited amount of access through the secondary street.
The intent from day one was to have a certain amount of construction activity as they develop
the back end of the subdivision to come through a secondary access.
Mayor Purcell stated if that 18-wheeler has to go through on Euclid, wouldn
t that be over the 5-ton limit going through the neighborhood.
Mr. Waggoner stated yes, but it is no heavier than a trash truck, moving van, delivery
They are applying this 5-ton ordinance to rectify a situation, but there are countless other
subdivisions in Lawton where streets are being torn up.
Mayor Purcell questioned if that was the only issue why they can t go through
the front gate? Is
it because they may have to turn around?
Mr. Waggoner stated once they develop the first 20-30 lots, it is the homeowners
will decide if they want to go ahead and complete the gates. It is not his intent to put the gates
anytime soon, he will let the homeowners decide. There will be situations where trucks could
come into the gated area in the front, but there could be a situation where a large truck cannot get
through because they don t know the access code or can t get a hold of the builder or the
Burk questioned the opinion of city staff.
Bryan Long, Assistant City Manager, stated staff would prefer that each development
own ingress and egress routes.
Jerry Ihler, Public Works Director, stated he would like to correct a statement that
was made. He
stated Mr. Waggoner stated that repairs were made with the approval of the public works/streets
department. He stated Mr. Waggoner was supposed to contact the street superintendent prior to
making any improvements and he did not. A couple of patches were made without any contact
with city staff. From staff perspective, the improvements that needed to be made are not
Joe Bailey, 2723 NE Euclid, stated he has multiple concerns. The concrete
mixer trucks are in
the 8-10 ton range and they can carry as much as 20 tons of mix. That is a 30 ton vehicle
traveling down a residential street. He stated serious ripples have occurred since the construction
began. There were holes that went all the way down to the soil but those have been repaired.
The family that lives on the NW corner told him that they have had friends and relatives parked
legally in front of their street and truckers have come and asked them to move their vehicles.
This is unacceptable. He stated there are young children in their neighborhood and they
sidewalks so they end up walking in the street. When the development began they were told that
this road would be used for emergency vehicles only.
Shoemate questioned how the neighbors would feel if a delivery truck or moving van
Mr. Bailey stated if someone is parked on the street, they will not be able to fit
down the street.
Blake Dutcher, attorney for Mr. Waggoner, stated they will bring all of the concrete
through the front entrance. They are concerned with the ability to bring in occasional longer
trucks that may have difficulty coming in through the main entrance. All of the big construction
on the development is done. They are primarily talking about construction material trucks that
may come in. There are 70-80 lots that may build out over the next three years. They are
to have the ability to bring in these sort of trucks on this access road that may have trouble if the
gates are shut. He stated on the very first plans Euclid was always intended to be
construction entrance. Only then did they learn of the 5 ton limit. They feel they should get
same consideration as the other developers in town. When they met with staff to discuss these
issues the City Council took action without full knowledge of the facts to rescind the agreement
without notice to him or Mr. Waggoner. They feel a deal is a deal. Part of their agreement
completely overlay and resurface that street when they are done. They will restrict activity
those times when children will be more likely to be in school. They will agree to limit the access
to only those long large trucks that would have difficulty in backing up at the entrance. They
would like the City Council to designate Euclid as an alternate truck route and to allow them to
utilize this access for those trucks that would have difficulty in the gated entrance.
Drewry questioned if a long truck would have the same trouble turning on Euclid.
Mr. Dutcher stated Euclid and 28
th Street is a straight shot into the development and they would
not anticipate the same amount of difficulty if they had to back out. He stated most
developments are doing exactly what they are getting dinged for.
Wells questioned why they cannot wait until the gates are up to handle this issue. Until then the
long trucks can get in the gated entrance.
Mr. Dutcher stated they could until the gates go up. He stated they are going
to have to address
that issue at some point, but they thought they had addressed that with staff and had a resolution.
He is concerned they are losing site of that.
Wells stated rather than having the trucks go in the back entrance why don
t they wait until the
gates are put up and we have a problem. A lot of subdivisions with controlled access will leave
the gates open during the day and close them at night.
Mr. Dutcher stated most of the controlled access developments are doing exactly what
doing, they use a construction entrance to come in through the back in the existing residence. He
stated they could wait, but they are going to have to face this problem at some time. He stated
that all of those in attendance at the meeting thought this issue had been resolved.
Mayor Purcell stated that if the gates are not there, the trucks are going to get
questioned why they would need to use the access off Euclid if you can get through the front
Mr. Dutcher stated Euclid is a more efficient access because it is a shorter distance
roads to the construction area. He stated it is much more difficult for longer trucks to navigate
through the front entrance.
Burk stated he feels that they just don t want to go through the front entrance
and tear up their
roads. He stated there are a lot of developers doing this same thing, going out and building
things without permits and then coming to the City Council and wanting us to do something
about it. He stated this Council has had it. They don t allow residents to do this,
they have to
tear out what they have been doing and stop their permit. This had been dragging out for months.
It had to have been August or September when they met out at the sight. If there was an
agreement, none of them knew about it. People on that road are angry and have been
inconvenienced and he feels that enough is enough. They were told that Euclid was not going to
be used as a construction entrance.
Jensen stated it was an emergency access only on the plan.
Mr. Dutcher stated after Councilmember Burk met with Mr. Waggoner, they had a meeting
city staff to address these issues and they thought they were entering into an agreement that
would allow them to access and utilize that road which lessened the importance of a bypass road.
The agreement they reached set specific parameters that addressed these issues.
Burk stated he remembers when the Council approved the plat because he had citizens
questioning if that road was going to be used, and the answer at that time was no.
Mr. Dutcher stated it was identified as an emergency access but that was not their
limit that access to just an emergency access.
Burk questioned why they just didn t say that in the beginning.
Mr. Waggoner stated he was not in attendance when it was approved.
Burk stated he is sure someone stood there and told the Council that this was what
was going to
happen. He remembers that conversation. He stated he has nothing against the subdivision,
Mr. Waggoner stated he will honor the 5-ton limit and make his subdivision work. He is not here
to tear up streets and roads or jeopardize a safety issue. He spends anywhere from $15-20
million a year in land development in Lawton. It just makes sense to be able to have a certain
amount of access.
Burk stated he feels things would be different if they had just known in the beginning
would be used as a construction entrance.
Mr. Waggoner stated that may have been a mistake on everyone s part, but they
under that entrance for well over a year and when this became an issue they were willing to sit
down with staff and work out an agreement. He stated he has built hundreds of projects
town and this is the first time he has not pulled a permit.
Mayor Purcell questioned how long it would be with trucks using that road. Will
it be six
months or three years?
Mr. Waggoner stated at this point most of the construction is complete. They
are taking about
truck traffic only every two weeks or once a month. This will be a very limited amount of traffic.
Mayor Purcell questioned is there was a time frame in mind to finish the whole development.
Mr. Waggoner stated he is hoping it will be completed in 3 ½ years. These
are large lots and
they will not sell quickly. He stated he will bring everything in through the front entrance at
point and realistically that will be in the next year.
Wells stated that if by code you have to have two entrances into every subdivision,
Euclid entrance will never close.
Mayor Purcell stated Mr. Waggoner mentioned that there will be another entrance one
Shoemate stated the City is not receiving a lot of money to repair streets and he
wants to prevent
our streets from being torn up. He stated the street should also be fixed to our standards.
Bryan Long, Assistant City Manager, stated as this issue came up with the residents
he shared with the City Council that there was a tentative agreement in place. He stated that
always subject to Council approval. He stated under no circumstances did he represent that he
operated under the full force of the authority of the City Council. He stated it really
is the big
picture they are talking about and the rapid growth rate that the community is experiencing and
the volume of dollars it will take to repair each of these subdivision entrances. He does
appreciate that this developer has stepped up to do the right thing, but it is a code requirement.
All developers should consider the best thing for this community.
Jensen stated this is not an action item, but staff does need some direction.
Burk stated he would like to see them only use the main entrance as the construction
Mayor Purcell stated that this will close the Euclid entrance to all construction
traffic and all of
the traffic will have to go through the main gate. He stated staff can bring back an agreement
the next meeting.
Jensen stated there is a requirement to repair the road. He spoke with Mr.
Ihler as to whether the
repair work was sufficient and staff felt in one area it was not sufficient. He stated they
enforce the code section on these repairs. He feels there is no need for an agreement unless
City Council is going to allow them to use Euclid as an access.
Mayor Purcell questioned if it was the consensus of the Council that Mr. Waggoner
longer use the Euclid entrance because it would be in violation without an agreement and the
City will enforce the provision to repair the street.
The City Council agreed.
Mr. Dutcher stated he is hearing that the City Council wishes to close the access
to all vehicles
that would exceed 5 tons.
Jensen stated that it is our position that Euclid should be used as an emergency
Mr. Dutcher stated their position is that there is nothing that restricts it to emergency
The citations they have been threatened with and issued were for the 5 ton limitation.
Jensen stated they will produce the documentation that this is for an emergency access
They can agree or not agree.
Mayor Purcell stated that they are telling Mr. Waggoner that he can no longer use
that access for
any of his construction vehicles.
Mr. Dutcher stated it would be for any traffic.
Mayor Purcell stated there is no local traffic.
Mr. Dutcher stated there is local traffic. There are three homeowners that
live on Flower Mound
that use that entrance.
Mayor Purcell stated they have plenty of room to access their property.
