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
former Waterfield site is now referred to as Brookside Farm, while
the R-1 land is referred to as Brookside.
applicant is seeking the following special exception approvals in
association with their companion proposals for a comprehensive
plan amendment, rezoning amendment and preliminary subdivision:
Special Exception applications to reduce the amount of open space
Special Exception to allow for floodplain crossings and floodplain
uses (Brookside and Brookside Farm),
Special Exception to allow the construction of public utility
facilities (Brookside and Brookside Farm.)
associated proffer amendment application for the former Waterfield
site is discussed under a separate agenda request item.
In addition, the applicant has filed a preliminary
subdivision plat; however, that request will not be forwarded
until Board action on the other requests.
applicant has requested that these combined applications be
tracked concurrently through the public hearing process.
Because of the rezoning and comprehensive plan amendment,
this means the Board of Supervisors has one year from the
application acceptance date (May 30, 2001) to make a decision,
unless the applicant agrees to additional postponements.
public hearing on these cases was opened on March 18, 2002, and
left open to allow for additional revisions to be made by the
applicant and for additional public review and comment.
