Please note that this approval is subject to the provisions outlined in the staff report and the Commission expectations as outlined by Mr. Cilimberg as will be refined and presented to the Board of Supervisors:


·         A proffer as offered by the applicant of $1,725 per unit times 8 units for affordable housing.

·         The architectural standards should be specified more clearly in the Code of Development, potentially through photographs that show examples.

·         The easements that have been signed off should be added to the Code of Development as attachments.

·         Clarify the statement of uses in the Code of Development to state the specific by right and special use permit uses. 

·         Affirm the amenities in the green space and note exactly what they are in the Code of Development.

·         Specify the construction standards for the stairway, sidewalk and privacy fence in the Code of Development.

·         Reference the general development plan by date.
