RE:  SUB 04-077 Belle Vista, LLC Preliminary Subdivision Plat; Tax Map 79, Parcel 50C


Dear Mr. Gale:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on November 16, 2004, denied approval of the above-noted petition by a vote of (5:2).


The Commission denied the request for private roads in the exercise of its discretion under Albemarle County Code Sections 14-232 and 14-234.  The proposed public roads could not be approved by VDOT and, otherwise, the approval of the private road would allow the property to be developed differently than it could be with the public road.  In order for the preliminary plat to be approved, the subdivider must either amend the plat to show that all the roads would be public roads or provide the Commission with an alignment of the private road that meets the requirements of Albemarle County Code Sections 14-232 through 14-234. 


If you should have any questions or comments regarding the above noted action, please do not hesitate to contact me (434) 296-5823.
