Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Section 7-302.1.B of the Zoning Ordinance requires that a private street connect directly to a state maintained street. However, the Board of Supervisors has the authority to modify this limitation provided the applicant can show that:
1. No other remedy is realistically feasible;
2. Plausible alternatives have been exhausted;
3. To not so modify the applicable limitation would place an unreasonable restriction on the use of the property; and
4. Properties through which access is planned will not be unreasonably affected.
No other access options are available, as the applicants’ lot is internal to the development. Without the requested waiver, the applicant cannot proceed with the proposed family transfer divisions as the road frontage and access requirements cannot be met. The existing Road Maintenance Association has agreed to include the proposed lots in the Association.
