Run. As proposed, the
two road crossings will provide for internal connectivity for the
proposed development. With
the current subdivision design all lots have access to both Route
29 and Baldwin Ridge Road. Included
as Attachment 2 is a reduction of the special exception plat.
May 20, 2002, the Board of Supervisors approved the companion
preliminary plat for this proposed 103-lot residential
property is located on the southeast side of Route 29,
approximately 4,000 feet north of the intersection of Route 29 and
Route 605. Baldwin
Ridge Road (Route 673) is the northern property boundary. The property is immediately adjacent to the Lake

The countersunk culvert design shall incorporate a single
box culvert that spans, at a minimum, the bed and banks of the
existing stream channel. A
multi-cell culvert design is permissible; however, the additional
cells must be outside the limits of the natural bed and banks and
set at an elevation consistent with the existing overbank regions.
A minimum “countersinking” of one-foot (1’) shall be
provided below the existing stream invert.
Any land disturbed within the floodplain shall be stabilized with
