The Creekside Meadows proposal seeks approval of concurrent applications to create a residential neighborhood.
- A Planned Unit Development (PUD) to allow reductions in dimensional requirements, flexibility in street standards and a bonus density (File # PPU-17-0001); and
- A Preliminary Plat to subdivide a 9.93 acre into 56 single-family lots, PPL-17-0001.
Located in the RS 8400 zoning district, it includes a bonus density of 15 additional lots. The development will create a new public street and multiple open spaces for active play. Thirty-six percent of the site is an open space designation including pedestrian connections throughout the development, walking trails, and conservation areas.
Flexibility is proposed in lot sizes (average 3,300 square feet), some front and side yard setbacks and narrow right-of-way and pavement widths. All infrastructure, underlying street functions, and emergency access requirements would be met. The site contains critical areas (wetland and stream buffers and steep slopes) which will be enhanced and/or stabilized and monitored.
A decision to approve the proposal means the project meets, or can be conditioned to meet, all Preliminary PUD and bonus density requirements concurrent with the preliminary plat (subdivision) review and approval.
Development Proposal Approved
In order to receive final approval of the PUD, the applicant must satisfy the conditions of approval and subdivision, together with a zoning map amendment (rezone) of the site to PUD/RS 8400. The rezone will show that the site is a planned unit development and therefore subject to specific standards and regulations. Construction of new homes can begin once these actions have been completed.
