The owner/applicant is
seeking a modification of Subdivision Ordinance Section
9-11, Limitations, to
allow a Preliminary Plat to remain active for a longer
period of time. The Cedar Mill Preliminary Plat was
originally approved by the Board of Supervisors on July 13,
2006. Since that time, the properties associated with the
subdivision have been acquired by a new owner who is
interested in continuing the development in accord with the
originally approved Preliminary Plat.
Section 9-11 of the
Subdivision Ordinance currently allow Preliminary Plats to
remain active for a period of eighteen (18) months from the
date of approval. A Final Plat needs to be filed within that
eighteen month timeframe. The Ordinance allows for two (2)
six-month extensions to be granted in order to allow the
Applicant additional time to obtain Construction Plan
approval and file the Final Plat. Two extensions have been
granted, and the Preliminary Plat will now remain active
until January 13, 2009.
Based on the extent of work
that needs to be done in order for Construction Plan
approval to be granted (which is necessary in order to file
the Final Plat), the approved extensions will not allow the
new owner an adequate amount of preparation time. The
Applicant is therefore requesting that the Preliminary Plat
remain active for an additional two (2) years beyond the new
expiration date. If approved, the Preliminary Plat would
have an expiration date of January 13, 2011.
The applicantís Statement of
Justification is included as Attachment 1.
Attachment 2 is the Preliminary Plat, as approved in
2006. Attachment 3 is the signed Developerís
Agreement which outlines the road improvements to be done as
per the Preliminary Plat Conditions of Development.
