8.         STA-2001-08. Comprehensive revision of the Subdivision Ordinance.   Public hearing on an Ordinance to amend Chapter 14, Subdivision of Land, of the Albemarle County Code, to comprehensively revise the subdivision regulations by amending most existing regulations, repealing or adding other regulations, and reorganizing Chapter 14 and renumbering many existing regulations.  The regulations being amended and added pertain to general provisions (including but not limited to the purposes of Chapter 14 and its applicability; prohibited acts; and definitions); administration and procedure (including but not limited to application requirements for various types of land divisions, boundary line adjustments and easement plats; procedures for reviewing such plats; conditions of approval for family divisions; periods of validity of approved plats; and when and how private streets may be authorized and considerations relevant thereto); plat requirements and required documents (including but not limited to the form, style and content of plats; and the documents required to be submitted therewith including groundwater assessment information; and overlot grading plans); and onsite improvements and design (including but not limited to lots and blocks, including appropriate lot location to allow access from lots onto streets or shared driveways; the coordination of streets; street standards; water, sewer and other improvements including sidewalks, planting strips and pedestrian walkways; dedications and reservations; and surety in lieu of completion of improvements).  The regulations being repealed pertain to administrative procedure (matters considered in conjunction with a request for authorization to construct private roads; review of determination of consistency with comprehensive plan); plat requirements and required documents (submittal of drainage control information; sketch plans for utilities, bridges and culverts; statements of availability of services; evidence of approved erosion and sediment control plans or lack of need therefor; and previously approved plans and existing features and improvements); and onsite improvements and design (list of required on-site improvements; the reservation of land for future right-of-way; configuration of lots; lot size; determining applicable standards for public streets; and drainage control).  The regulations will impose different requirements for subdivisions, depending on whether the subdivision is within the development areas or the rural areas as identified in the Albemarle County Comprehensive Plan. The different requirements pertain to: determining which regulations apply to a subdivision; circumstances when private streets may be authorized in the rural areas or in the development areas; documents to be submitted with requests for private streets; authority to establish alleys in the development areas; the requirement that a note be added to final plats regarding parent parcel access for subdivisions in the rural areas; the requirement for overlot grading plans for certain residential subdivisions in the development areas; locations of reasonable access from a lot onto a street; the coordination and extension of streets within the development areas; the requirement for streets in the development areas to be constructed with curb, curb and gutter, sidewalks and planting strips, and when the requirement may be waived; and standards for private streets.  The regulations also will impose a ninety-five dollar ($95.00) fee for the review of plats for family divisions, resubdivisions, boundary line adjustments and easement plats. The purpose of these fees is to reimburse the County for its services in reviewing the plats. These are the same fees presently imposed for the review of plats for family divisions and rural divisions. The proposed imposition of these fees is authorized by Virginia Code § 15.2-2241(9). The regulations also would clarify the action triggering a certain fee from “waiver, variation or substitution of subdivision requirements” to “waiver after approval of preliminary plat,” and would delete the fee for requesting an indefinite deferral of action on a plat.
