      metes and bounds description to be prepared by a registered
      professional land surveyor is appropriate.

                           REGULATIONS FOR TRACTS IN ABSTRACT 257*

       Motion by Commissioner Clawson, seconded by Commissioner Payne
that the following action be taken by the Court:

       That, whereas Jack C. Albritton owned a tract of approximately 29 acres
and a tract of approximately 35 acres in Abstract 257; and
      Whereas Mr. Albritton subdivided said 35-acre tract and conveyed a 15-
acre portion out of said 35-acre tract, and did not have a plat prepared for said
subdivision and approved by this Court; and
       Whereas Mr. Albritton has constructed or had constructed a road (or
shared driveway) and a bridge across the North Fork of Hayes Creek to serve
the tracts divided out of his 35-acre tract; and
       Whereas Mr. Albritton now wishes to subdivide the 29-acre tract and to
sell the 21.5628-acre portion of said 29-acre tract south of said creek; and
      Whereas Mr. Albritton has requested variances to Article IV of the
Brazoria County Subdivision Regulations to allow
a) The conveyance of the southern portion of the 29-acre tract without having
   a subdivision plat prepared and approved by Commissioners Court and
b) The continued usage of the existing road to serve the divided portions of the
   35-acre tract; and
      Whereas Mr. Albritton has not obtained the approval of said subdivisions
by Brazoria County Drainage District #5 and the Village of Iowa Colony, and
has not provided evidence that the road and bridge meet minimum County
standards; and
      Whereas the County Engineer has recommended that the variance
requests be denied; and
       Whereas, the Court finds that the public interest is not best served by
granting said variances;
Now therefore, the Court hereby denies said variance requests.
       Further, the Court directs that no building permit will be granted for the
construction of any improvements not already begun on the tracts divided out
of said 35-acre tract until the division is brought into compliance with the
Brazoria County Subdivision Regulations.
      Further, that a certified copy of this order be furnished to the County
Engineer.

Motion carried, all present voting aye.
