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.
