BACKGROUND:

The owners/developers of the approved Cascadia  development are requesting ACSA Jurisdictional Area designation for  water and sewer service to three parcels totaling approximately 55.71 acres located on the east side of Stony Point Road (Route 20), north of its intersection with Route 250 East.  The parcels are located entirely within the Pantops Urban Area Neighborhood, in the Rivanna Magisterial District. The parcels are not designated for any service at this time.  The Cascadia development was approved by the Board of Supervisors on August 2, 2006.  Recently, staff also received a request from the representatives of Broadus Memorial Baptist Church property (5 acres) to be included in the ACSA Jurisdictional Area for water and sewer service.  The church property is also located entirely within the Pantops Urban Area Neighborhood (Attachment A).

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

2. Protect the County's natural resources.

 

DISCUSSION:

The Comprehensive Plan provides the following concerning the provision of water and sewer service to the Development Areas:

 

“General Principle: Urban Areas, Communities, and Villages are to be served by public water and sewer (p. 114).”

“Provide water and sewer service only to areas within the ACSA Jurisdictional Areas (p. 130).”

“Follow the boundaries of the designated Development Areas in delineating Jurisdictional Areas (p.130).”

 

The Comprehensive Plan recommends serving the Development Areas with public water and sewer service.  These parcels are located within the Pantops Urban Area, Neighborhood Three, so designation as part of the ACSA Jurisdictional Area for public water and sewer service would be consistent with County policy for the provision of water and sewer service.

 

Staff notes that there are two small parcels adjacent to the church property and fronting on Route 20, which are also entirely within the Development Area but do not have Jurisdictional Area designation.  These parcels (Tax Map 62-25A and 25B) are each approximately one (1) acre in size, and a home is located on Parcel 25B.  Including these parcels in the Jurisdictional Area would also be consistent with County policy for the provision of water and sewer service; therefore, staff recommends that these properties also be included in the Jurisdictional Area for water and sewer service.    

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

The property owners would bear the costs for water and sewer connections.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

At the conclusion of the public hearing, staff recommends approval of an amendment to the ACSA Jurisdictional Area to include Tax Map 62, Parcel 25, 25A, 25B, 25C/C1 and Tax Map 78, Parcels 59 and 59A for water and sewer service.
