A Resolution to Approve a Waiver Allowing a Private Street That Does Not Connect Directly to a State Maintained Road


Topic Description:


The owners and applicant are seeking a waiver of Zoning Ordinance Section 7-302 1.B., Limitations, which would allow a subdivision on a private street that does not connect directly to a state maintained street. The property fronts on South Pines Road, which is a state maintained road that connects to Opal Road (Route 687). However, the state maintenance of South Pines Road ends 113 feet from the Barbari property, thereby making the portion that provides the frontage to their property a private street. The applicants are proposing to divide a 10.12 acre parcel into two lots, one family lot of 4.97 acres and a residue of 5.15 acres. As proposed, the lots would be accessed by a 50-foot easement that would connect to South Pines Road beyond the section that is state maintained.


The property is zoned Rural Agriculture (RA), and has the subdivision potential to be divided into two (2) lots.  The property is located on the west side of South Pines Road (partially state maintained) and south of Opal Road (Route 687). The applicants currently access their property via South Pines Road.


The applicants’ justification is included as Attachment 3.  The vicinity map is included as Attachment 1, while Attachment 2 illustrates the access to the proposed lots.


Planning Commission Action:


On October 27, 2005, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the Applicant’s waiver of Section 7-302 1.B. of the Zoning Ordinance, subject to conditions. The proposed conditions are reflected in the resolution of approval. The Planning Commission staff report is available upon request.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:
