A Resolution to Approve the Reid Family Request (WVRP10-CR-003) to Reduce the Ten-Year Sale Restriction for a Family Transfer Lot, Cedar Run District


Topic Description:

In January of 2002, the County approved the creation of a 3.6812-acre lot as a family transfer. This lot is located off a private easement (Roselawn Lane) that connects to Elk Run Road (Route 806) in the Cedar Run Magisterial District (PIN #7817-83-9276-000). The attached vicinity map shows the location of this parcel. The lot was conveyed to Christopher E. Reid and Lynndey M. Reid by Lynndey’s parents, Michael and Ruth Funkhouser, and the conveyance included the affidavit requiring that the grantee not transfer the property to a non-immediate family member for ten (10) years.

Christopher and Lynndey Reid are now requesting that the Board of Supervisors reduce the 10-year time requirement of Section 2-39.3.A.3 of the Subdivision Ordinance, so that they will not have to hold the property for ten (10) years before voluntarily transferring the property. Section 2-39.3A.15 of the Subdivision Ordinance states that, if the Board of Supervisors finds that an extraordinary hardship is caused by the ten (10) year restriction, it may reduce the time period to alleviate the hardship. If approved, Mr. and Mrs. Reid would have held the property for seven (7) years.

The applicants have encountered financial hardship and can no longer sustain the financial impacts. Mr. and Mrs. Reid need to sell the property in order to alleviate that hardship. The Reid’s letter provided under separate cover to the Board of Supervisors requests the reduction, along with the specific justification.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
