The applicant is proposing to develop a
975-lot residential subdivision in the New Baltimore Service
District on approximately 900 acres of land.
The assemblage of land includes the former Waterfield
site (currently approved for 667 dwelling units in a PRD zoning
district) along with other adjacent lands (Gerber tracts, etc.)
that are zoned R-1 (Residential).
The former Waterfield site is now referred to as
Brookside Farm, while the R-1 land is referred to as Brookside.

amendment and preliminary subdivision:

tracked concurrently through the public hearing process.

unless the applicant agrees to additional postponements.
