Dear Mr. Collins:

 

The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on February 26, 2008, 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 SP-2005-28 Biscuit Run Stream Crossing (Middle):

1.    The applicant must obtain a map revision, letter of revision, or letter of amendment as required from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and copy the County Engineer on all correspondence.

2.       Army Corp of Engineers, Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, and other necessary state and federal agency approvals must be obtained prior to issuance of grading permits for construction of the new stream crossing and approaches.

3.       County approval of road and bridge plans for the crossing to be in accord with the application plan, as determined by the County Engineer.

4.       County approval of a grading and an erosion and sediment control plan prior to the issuance of a grading permit for construction of the new stream crossing and approaches.

5.       County approval of a stream buffer mitigation plan prior to the issuance of a grading permit for construction of the new stream crossing and approaches.

6.       Grading within floodplain shall be confined to the minimum necessary to construct the bridge.  Changes in final design of the bridge, such as use of a longer span, are acceptable if the changes reduce impacts to the floodplain, in the opinion of the County Engineer.

7.       Construction of the new crossing shall commence on or before April 9, 2013, or this special use permit shall be deemed abandoned and the authority granted hereunder shall thereupon terminate.

8.       VDOT approval shall be required for the stream crossing to ensure that the roads and the bridges meet VDOT standards. 

9.       The approval of this special use permit does not supersede or modify any proffer or provision of the Code of Development related to ZMA-2005-00017 or any subsequent amendments thereto.

 

The motion passed by a vote of 6:0.
