BACKGROUND:

At the November 3, 2004 Board of Supervisors meeting, a public hearing was held on the special use permit requests for the swim and tennis club facilities at Forest Lakes North and South.  At the hearing, staff informed the Board that the applicant had requested minor wording changes to the recommended special use permit condition.   Staff had no problem with the requested change in wording; however, the Forest Lakes Community Association, future owner of the property, wished to have the wording reviewed by their attorney.  Staff recommended that action be postponed until that review took place.  The Board agreed to defer action and said that the item could be brought back as a consent agenda item in December.

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Strategic Direction 2: Protect the County’s natural, scenic and historic resources.

Strategic Direction 3: Enhance the Quality of Life for all Albemarle County Citizens

 

DISCUSSION:

The Forest Lakes Community Association has agreed to the wording of the recommended condition.  All outstanding issues have been resolved.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the two special use permits be approved with the following condition:

  1. The use, as approved, shall be limited to the residents and guests of the following developments:  Forest Lakes South, Springridge, Lanford Hills, Steeplechase, Amberfield, Cove Pointe, Edgewater, Gateway, Worthcrossing, Chelsea, Arbor Lake, Waterford, Watercrest, Copperknoll, Echo Ridge, Ridgefield, Poplar Ridge, Heather Glen, Whispering Woods, Timberwood, Timber Pointe, Autumn Woods. Any future residential developments contiguous to the developments listed, that are added to the Forest Lakes Community Association, may be permitted to use the facilities.  The total number of additional dwelling units in future residential developments permitted to use the facilities shall not exceed 125.
