RE:      ZMA 2005-007 Haden Place (Signs #12&13)

            Tax Map 55, Parcel 69 and Tax Map 56, Parcel 9



Dear Ms. Strickland:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on July 11, 2006, unanimously recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors.

Please note that this approval is contingent upon the applicant addressing the outstanding issues listed by staff, and making the following changes to the proffers:



§         The affordable housing proffer shall be modified to conform to the County’s Affordable Housing Policy in the Comprehensive Plan. 

§         The recommended technical changes shall be made to the application plan, code of development and proffers that staff has noted.

§         All cash proffers offered by the applicant should be devoted to transportation improvements in Crozet. The proffer language will be revised through coordination with County staff, including the County Attorney, prior to the Board meeting.

§         An interconnection shall be provided and illustrated on the application plan from the proposed east/west connector road between Haden and Killdeer Lanes southward to Summerford Lane in Ballard Field.


Regarding the Waiver Requests:


The Planning Commission unanimously approved the applicant’s waiver request for critical slopes.


The Commission unanimously approved the request for the waiver of the planting strip requirements around the street circling the community green at the end of Haden Place, with the following condition:


1.       Pedestrian crossings shall be provided from the sidewalks on both sides of the community green.


The Commission unanimously approved the request for the waiver of the private street request called Haden Place on the application plan.



Please be advised that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors will review this petition and receive public comment at their meeting on September 13, 2006. It is the Board of Supervisor’s preference that a public hearing not be advertised until all of the final materials for a zoning application have been received by the County and are available for public review.  To achieve this preference, please provide final plans, final codes of development, final proffers, and any other documents deemed necessary by the Director of Community Development, to me no later than August 21, 2006.
