RE:      ZMA-2007-00005, Avon Park II (Signs #64, 72) – UPDATED LETTER CHANGE IN RECOMENDATION

            Tax Map 90, Parcel 31


Dear Mr. Pohl:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on October 16, 2007, by a vote of 5:1 recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors.


Please note that this approval is subject to the following conditions:


Action on ZMA-2007-00005 Avon Park II:

  1. The grading on lot 28 will not exceed 3:1 slopes or less and that if retaining walls are needed, they will be low in height and terraced.
  2. To accept staff’s recommendation to reject the planting strip waiver. The applicant presented an alternate street section that met the ordinance requirements, which the Commission recommended be reflected on the revised plan.

3.       The Commission suggested the applicant consider adding additional proffer language to the Affordable Housing proffers, to address the situation if there is not a person to occupy the affordable housing that the appropriate amount would be paid to the County for affordable housing.

  1. The Commission suggested the applicant consider adding additional proffer language to further address storm water management impacts of the rezoning, using a standard of 80 opposed to the 60 percent standard.


Action on Public Street Waiver Request for ZMA-2007-00005 Avon Park II:

Approve the waiver to allow a private street instead of a public street. 



Please be advised that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors will review this petition and receive public comment at their meeting on November 14, 2007.
