No action is
necessary, unless a majority of the Board wishes to consider
this preliminary subdivision application. On June 29, 2006,
the Planning Commission unanimously voted to approve the
Eastwood Preliminary Plat, subject to the following
The Final Plat shall be in general conformance with
the Preliminary Plat entitled “Eastwood Farm” dated April
25, 2005, and received in this office April 25, 2006. This
approval is for a maximum of six (6) single-family
residential lots and a cul-de-sac length waiver.
The non-common open space residual parcel created
with the previous Administrative Subdivision, recorded on
February 23, 2006 in Deed Book 1204, Pages 984-998, shall be
in conformance with the Zoning Ordinance before Final
Construction Plan approval.
A Jurisdictional Determination shall be submitted
with the first submission of the Final Construction Plans.
All applicable State and Federal permits, including
wetlands permits, shall be provided prior to Final
Construction Plan approval.
The houses on Lot 1, 2, and 5 are located in soils
characterized as having a high water table. In addition,
these houses are in natural swales. The houses shall be
relocated out of the soils types 17B and 417C and out of the
swales. The natural drainage swales shall be protected.
Road grades shall not exceed 10%.
The County recommends that
no below grade basements be constructed on soils with high
water table due to wetness unless the foundation drainage
system of the structure is designed by a licensed
professional engineer to assure a dry basement and preclude
wet yards and recirculation of pumped or collected water.
Unless, in the opinion of the County Engineer, the
topography of the lot in relation to the overlot-grading
plan precludes grading the site to drain the basement to
daylight, all basements shall be designed to gravity
daylight without assistance from mechanical means. All
discharged water (mechanical or gravity) shall be conveyed
to the subdivision stormwater collection system and
discharged through the stormwater management
facilities. Drainage easements, where necessary, shall be
placed on the Final Plat. A note shall be placed on the
Final Plat stating, “Basements are not recommended in
mapping units 12A, 15B, 16B, 17B, 48B, 417B, and 417C.
Basements in these mapping units are subject to flooding due
to high seasonal water tables. Sump systems may run
continuously, leading to possible premature pump failure”.
It is not recommended to place houses in swales or
drainageways. Houses on Lots 2, 5, and 6 shall be moved out
Map units 40D, 240C, and 240D shall be added to
interpretive soils information.
Wells shall not be placed in drainageways. The well
on Lot 2 shall be moved.
Reserve and install areas of drainfields shall be
separated and labeled.

This final soil map shall be filed in the Building
Department to be used exclusively for obtaining soils
information for this proposed subdivision.
Two (2) copies of this final soil map with CPSS
