 OWNER/APPLICANT: Rebecca K. and Norman J. Lindway

 

PROPOSAL:

This request is to amend proffers associated with the R4 rezoning approved in 1984 for the Willow Lake development. The property is 4.6 acres in size and is located on Scottsville Road (Rt. 20) & Willow Lake Drive (Rt. 1135), just south of where Thomas Jefferson Parkway (Route 53) meets Scottsville Road. The owners have a residence on the property, which also serves as a bed and breakfast. They would like to build one additional residence and potentially use that new residence as part of the bed and breakfast business.

 

BACKGROUND: 

Amending the proffers and application plan is necessary because this property is limited to the one existing dwelling by the rezoning action on the Willow Lake development in 1984.

 

DISCUSSION/FINDINGS:

The request is found to be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. There were several reviewer concerns regarding existing access to the site. The applicant has submitted five proffers which are intended to address reviewer comments and potential impacts associated with this rezoning. (Attachment E)These proffers limit the number of dwellings on the property to no more than two.  Prior to a building permit for an additional dwelling unit the owners will consult with staff and the Department of Historic Resources. Also, prior to expansion of the inn use into the new dwelling, the applicant would be required to meet all requirements of the Site Plan section of the Zoning Ordinance. The site plan review process would include evaluations of the existing access drive and bridge to the property, parking requirements and improvements, and impacts to the flood plain.  A site plan would not otherwise be required by the Zoning Ordinance for two single family homes or as part of the provisions for tourist lodging.

 

 RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends approval of ZMA 2005-00013 approval with the proffers submitted by the applicant.
