TO:                 Albemarle County Board of Supervisors

 

FROM:           Larry W. Davis, County Attorney

                        Greg Kamptner, Deputy County Attorney

 

DATE:            June 30, 2008

 

RE:                  Carter’s Bridge and Lanark Agricultural and Forestal Districts

 

           

This memorandum explains some of the transactions that have required that the district ordinances be amended to include additional tax map and parcel numbers.

 

Carter’s Bridge Agricultural and Forestal District

 

            Six parcels within the district were subdivided since the district was last reviewed, requiring that the proposed district ordinance be amended to identify the affected lands by their new tax map and parcel numbers:

 

·                     Tax Map 101 Parcel 60 was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 101 Parcel 60 and Tax Map 112 Parcel 16F2.

 

·                     Tax Map 113 Parcel 11 was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 113 Parcels 11H, 11I, 11J, 11K and Tax Map 114 Parcels 31B, 31C and 31D.

 

·                     Tax Map 113 Parcel 11F was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 113 Parcels 11F, 11F1, 11F2 and 11F3.

 

·                     Tax Map 113 Parcel 11G was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 113 Parcels 11G, 11G1 and 11G2.

 

·                     Tax Map 114 Parcel 67C was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 114 Parcels 67C, 67D, 67E, 67F, 67G and 67H.

 

·                     Tax Map 112 Parcel 16E was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 112 Parcels 16E, 16E1 and 16E2.

 

            Two parcels were created from parcels within the district and their owners have requested that they be withdrawn.  Because these parcels were never identified in the district ordinance since they were created after the last review in 1998, they do not appear as parcels being withdrawn in the proposed ordinance.  Those parcels are:

 

·                     Tax Map 112 Parcel 16J, which was created in 2007 and was formerly a part of Tax Map 112 Parcel 16.  Parcels 16 and 16 J are part of Greenmont Farm, which the owners have stated they wish to withdraw from the agricultural and forestal district because they intend to place the lands under conservation easement, and being in the district affects the value of the land.

 

·                     Tax Map 114 Parcel 31E, which was created in 2005 and was formerly part of Tax Map 113 Parcel 11.  The owner of both parcels has requested to withdraw them from the district.

 

            After an official determination of development rights determined that Tax Map 112 Parcel 15 was actually comprised of two parcels of record, an additional tax map and parcel number was assigned – Tax Map 112 Parcel 15A – and this parcel is included to be added to the district.

 

Lanark Agricultural and Forestal District

 

            Three parcels within the district were subdivided since the district was last reviewed, requiring that the

proposed district ordinance be amended to identify the affected lands by their new tax map and parcel numbers:

 

·                     Tax Map 103 Parcel 3 was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 103 Parcels 3, 3A, 3B, 3C and 3G.

 

·                     Tax Map 103 Parcel 10 was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 103 Parcels 9A, 9B, 9C, 9D, 9E and 9F.  Tax Map 103 Parcel 10 no longer exists and the proposed ordinance deletes the reference to that parcel.

 

·                     Tax Map 103 Parcel 43 was subdivided and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 103 Parcels 43 and 43M.

 

            A number of parcels are being added to the district as the result of a number of boundary line adjustments:

 

·                     Tax Map 103 Parcel 1B is currently in the district.  Tax Map 103 Parcels 35, 35A and 35C are proposed to be added to the district.  Portions of what are now Tax Map 102 Parcel 35 and 35C were formerly in Parcel 1B.

 

·                     Tax Map 91 Parcel 21A is currently in the district.  Tax Map 103 Parcel 68 is not presently in the district.  A boundary line adjustment between Tax Map 91 Parcel 21A and Tax Map 103 Parcel 68 resulted in almost 5 acres being transferred from Parcel 21A to Parcel 68.  The portion of Parcel 68 that was formerly part of Parcel 21A is being added to the district, and is identified in the proposed district ordinance as Parcel “68 (part).”

 

·                     Tax Map 103 Parcel 10C became part of Tax Map 103 Parcel 10D at some point between 1992 and 1999.  Parcel 10D is already in the district and the proposed ordinance and the proposed ordinance deletes the reference to that parcel.

 

            The owners of Tax Map 102 Parcels 40, 40B and 40C, who originally requested their lands be withdrawn from the district, have instead requested that their lands remain in the district.  Tax Map 102 Parcel 40 was subdivided in 2001 and its lands are now identified as Tax Map 102 Parcels 40 and 40C.  The proposed district ordinance reflects the owners’ request and shows Parcels 40 and 40B remaining in the district and Parcel 40C being added to the district.
