Richards Turnbull Estates Subdivision: Preliminary Plat PPLT06-MA-007, Marshall District


Topic Description:

The applicant is seeking Preliminary Plat approval to divide one parcel of approximately ±11.50 acres into five (5) single-family residential lots ranging in size from ±1.0 to ±2.553 acres.  In addition, there is a SWM/BMP lot and an administrative lot (under separate application). This Village (V) zoned parcel has the gross subdivision potential of approximately sixteen (16) lots.  Each property will be served by a private well and septic field.  The Preliminary Plat is included as Attachment 1.

Section 19-18 of the County Code requires a proposed subdivision to connect to a public water system if located within 300 feet of such system.  The proposed subdivision is approximately 504 feet from the Turnbull water system.  The Water and Sanitation Authority indicates that the existing Turnbull water system has approximately four (4) taps left on this system which would not suffice even if the subdivision were located within the 300 feet.


Zoning/Acreage/Land Use: 

The ±11.5 acres are zoned Village (V).  Adjacent properties to the north, south and west are zoned Village (V) and Rural Agricultural (RA) to the east.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:
