Topic:

Final Subdivision Plan for Cedar Brooke Phases 8, 9 and 10 (Formerly Reynard’s Crossing)

Topic Description:

On July 16, 2001, the Board of Supervisors approved the Preliminary Plat for Phases 5 through 10 of the Reynard's Crossing subdivision, which the applicant has now renamed Cedar Brooke.  Phases 5 through 10 include 100 single-family detached lots.  As a reminder, the Board has previously approved the Phases 5, 6 and 7 construction plans.  The applicant is now seeking final subdivision approval for Phases 8, 9 and 10, which includes the remaining 47 lots.

 

The property is located on the south side of Catlett Road (Route 28), east of Marsh Road (Route 17) opposite Independence Avenue.

 

As part of the Preliminary Plat approval, Board of Supervisors review was required for the final construction plans due to the project's floodplain environmental sensitivity.  Subsequently, in conjunction with the final design of this section of the proposed development, the applicant was required to receive Special Exception approval to permit crossing of a floodplain for the construction of Station Drive.  On July 21, 2003, the Board granted the Special Exception to allow fill in the floodplain for the proposed road crossing to access the Phases 8, 9 and 10 lots.  This additional layer of approval has resulted in no further review required by the Board.

 

The final construction plans have been approved by the referral agencies, including the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Water and Sanitation Authority, John Marshall Soil and Water Conservation District, the County Soil Scientist, and the County Engineer.  It is staff's evaluation that the final construction plans and final record plat are in a form to be approved once the improvement bond is set and posted.  The detailed construction plans are available for review.

 

There will be another item for the Board of Supervisors’ consideration for this subdivision related to a proffered land dedication; however, this item will be sent to the Board in a separate agenda request.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

No action is necessary unless a majority of the Board wishes to consider this final subdivision application.
