INFORMATION & STAFF COMMENTS - Next Meeting Date: March 3, 2011
Conservation Subdivision Application #517: proposed 13 lot subdivision of 257 Haley Road (126R Lambtown Road), an R-60 zone
Closed hearing 2/3/2011
Continued Hearing From 1/6/2011
Date of Receipt: 11/4/2010
Comments (2/3/2011): Updated with Atty. Landolina's 1/31/2011 email
Comments (1/31/2011): The applicant has requested the following waivers (Exhibit X):
• Section 5.5(b): The subdivision proposes to use an existing driveway which currently serves an existing home on Lot 126 R which is not included in the subdivision.
• Section 4.8.9: The alternative plan will provide access to seven lots by a common driveway.
• Section 4.3.5: Relates to the "stacking" of lots.
Comments (1/5/2011): The applicant has submitted revised documents and plans, including an alternative design with the existing shared drive way serving 7 lots (including 126R); a document discussing potential waivers; and a draft open space deed. The Commission will, likely, want to review these additional documents and allow the public and staff time to review. It may be prudent to continue the public hearing, which would require a time extension from the applicant.
Comments (12/2/2010): The applicant has submitted property history information, including a drawing and related deeds. The status of Lot 126R will have to be explained by the applicant. This is a rear lot and regulations require that it have frontage. The Zoning Enforcement Officer has revised his comments. The issue of lot size has been resolved, however, other issues need to be addressed and in particular the applicant will have to discuss the "nesting" or stacking of lots in connection with Section 4.3.5 of the Subdivision Regulations. Sight lines and driveway access on Haley Road will require review.
Comments From Preliminary Review: The subdivision impacts three existing lots and contains 3 shared driveways. As depicted on the preliminary drawing, the shared driveway created on and adjacent to existing lot 127-1190-126 is within 25 feet of the existing driveway. This lot also contains two residential uses (existing non-conforming).
