A Resolution to Approve a Waiver Allowing a Private Street, Lee District


Topic Description:


The applicant is seeking a waiver of Zoning Ordinance Section 7-302 1.B., Limitations, which would allow a subdivision on a private street that does not connect directly to a state maintained street. The property fronts on Tara Leigh Lane which is a private road that connects to Spring Mill Road (Route 823). The applicant is proposing to divide a 34.9-acre parcel into two lots: one administrative lot of 5 acres and a residue of 29.9 acres. As proposed, the lots would be accessed by an existing 50-foot easement that connects directly to Tara Leigh Lane.


The property is zoned Rural Agriculture (RA) and has the subdivision potential to be divided into three (3) lots. The property is located on the west side of Tara Lee Lane, southwest of Spring Mill Road, in Goldvein.


The applicant’s justification is included as Attachment 3.  The vicinity map is included as Attachment 1, while Attachment 2 illustrates the access to the proposed lots.


Planning Commission Action:


On February 16, 2006, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the applicant’s waiver of Section 7-302 1.B. of the Zoning Ordinance. The Planning Commission staff report is available upon request.
