Dear Mr. Dyer:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on April 8, 2008, recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors, by a vote of 6:0.


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


1.       There shall be no removal of vegetation or earth disturbance within the 200-foot stream buffer associated with the installation of the boat dock.  The stream buffer is measured from the edge of the floodplain, which is approximated to be Elevation 545 (North American Vertical Datum of 1988). 

2.       There shall be no other structures, such as decking or stairs, constructed in the 200-foot stream buffer.

3.   There shall be a memorandum of understanding or agreement between the Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department and the Albemarle County School Board that addresses public use of the boat dock. 

 4.  A stable and pervious pedestrian access reviewed and approved by the Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation shall be constructed and maintained from the closest paved parking area to the new boat dock.


Please be advised that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors will review this petition and receive public comment at their meeting on May 14, 2008.
