Tax Map 60, Parcels 25A and 25B


Dear Ms. Engle:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on August 10, 2004, by a vote of 5:0,  recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors. Please note that this approval is subject to the following conditions:


1.       Maximum enrollment shall be 12 students per class, with class start and end times staggered on minimum of 1/2 hour increments.

2.       Normal hours of operation for the school shall be from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM provided that occasional school-related events may occur outside of these hours.

3.       A pedestrian path five (5) feet in width shall be constructed across the front of Parcels 25A and 25B in the area between the existing vehicular parking area and the public travelway, to a standard acceptable to the Departments of Planning and Engineering and Public Works (Department of Community Development), to be maintained by VDOT or by the applicant in the event the pathway can not be constructed to meet VDOT standards.  In the event that existing power poles or other obstructions make it impossible to meet the acceptable standard, this width standard may be modified in the interest of allowing installation of the path.


Please be advised that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors will review this petition and receive public comment at their meeting on September 1, 2004.  Any new or additional information regarding your application must be submitted to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at least seven days prior to your scheduled hearing date.
