Summer Sky (Phase 2) Subdivision: Preliminary Plat PPLT05-LE-007

 

Topic Description:

 

The applicant is seeking Preliminary Plat approval to divide approximately 16.85 acres into two (2) single-family residential lots of ±5.0 and ±11.85 acres (residue).  These two (2) divisions will exhaust all subdivision potential on the property.  Each property will be served by an individual well and drainfield. 

 

Section 9-7 of the Subdivision Ordinance requires that “…all preliminary plats approved by the Planning Commission shall be referred to the Board of Supervisors at its next regularly scheduled meeting.  If the Board takes no action on the preliminary plat referral, the preliminary plat shall be deemed approved in accordance with the actions of the Planning Commission.”

 

The Planning Commission staff report is available upon request.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

 

No action is necessary, unless a majority of the Board of Supervisors wishes to consider this preliminary subdivision application.  On October 28, 2004, the Planning Commission voted to approve the Menmuir Subdivision (Phase II) Preliminary Plat, subject to the conditions noted below:

 

  1. The Final Plat shall be in general conformance with the “Preliminary Subdivision Plat Summer Sky Subdivision” dated August 11, 2004, signed by Carson G. Balzrette on 10-15-04 and received in the Planning Office on October 18, 2004, except as modified by these conditions.  This approval is for a maximum of two (2) residential lots.

 

  1. Pursuant to Section 7-603 of the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance, a landscape plan shall be submitted with the Final Construction Plans for approval.

 

  1. Dedication of right-of-way shall be required to make Union Church Road 25 feet wide from the center line to this subdivision property line.

 

  1. All driveway culverts shall be a minimum of 15 inch diameter and pass the 10-year storm.

 

  1. The County recommends that no below grade basements be constructed on soils with a 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.  Where possible, all exterior foundation drainage systems shall be designed to gravity daylight without assistance from mechanical means.  All discharged water (mechanical or gravity) must be conveyed to an adequate channel.  Drainage easements, where necessary, shall be placed on the final plat.  A note that “Basements are not recommended in mapping units 13B and 16B shall be on the final plat.  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”.

 

6.      A Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist (CPSS) needs to adjust the Type I Soil Map soil lines onto the Final Construction Plan.  This needs to be done in the field and checked for any additional soils information to be added to the Final Construction Plan.

 

  1. A signature block shall be placed on this plat for the CPSS to sign which states:

 

Preliminary Soils Information Provided by the Fauquier County Soil Scientist Office via a Type I Soil Map (1"=400') Dated _____7/12/04________.

 

This Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist has field reviewed and adjusted the preliminary soil information onto the final plat (1"=_?__') and certifies that this is the Best Available Soils Information to Date for Lots 1-2.

                                                                                                                       

Va. Certified Professional Soil Scientist                         DATE

CPSS #3401-             

 

8.      Interpretive information from the Type I soil report for each mapping unit shown on the Final Construction Plan shall be placed on the same sheet as the soil map.  Also a Symbols Legend shall be placed on the Final Construction Plan to identify spot symbols.

 

9.      This final soil map shall be filed in the Building Department to be used exclusively for obtaining soils information for this proposed subdivision.

 

10.Two copies of this Final Soil Map with CPSS signature shall be submitted to the Soil Scientist Office before Final Plat approval is made.

 

11.The Final Construction Plan signature sets shall require original CPSS signature. 

 

12.The following statements under Home Sites and Road Construction shall be placed on the same sheet as the Final Soils Map:

 

a.       The County recommends that no below grade basements be constructed on soil mapping units 13B, 16B, and 416B due to wetness unless the foundation drainage system of the structure is designed by a Virginia Licensed Professional Engineer. The foundation drainlines should be daylighted for gravity flow on all structures.

b.      The following statement shall be included on final soils map and E & S plans:  “PRIOR TO FINAL CONSTRUCTION PLAN APPROVAL, IT SHALL BE AGREED THAT ALL DRAINFIELD AREAS ARE TO BE SURROUNDED BY SAFETY FENCING AND NO CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC SHALL CROSS NOR SHALL LAND DISTURBANCE OCCUR IN THESE AREAS.  THE FENCING OF THESE AREAS IS TO BE VERIFIED BY COUNTY STAFF BEFORE THE ISSUANCE OF THE LAND DISTURBING PERMIT.

c.        The following statement needs to be placed on the Final Construction Plan:  “Foundations placed in soil mapping units that show a moderate, high, or very high shrink-swell potential in the most recent Interpretive Guide to the Soils of Fauquier County, Virginia will require a geotechnical evaluation in order to determine proper design.”

 

Location:

 

The property is on the south side of State Route 632 (Union Church Road) in the Lee Magisterial District.
