Dear Mr. Gloeckner:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on July 8, 2008, recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors, by a vote of 5:2.


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


  1. The site shall be developed in substantial accord with the concept plan entitled “St. Anne’s-Belfield Proposed Lower/Middle School Preliminary Site Plan,” dated June 6, 2008, except that changes may be made provided the Zoning Administrator finds that all other special use conditions are met.
  2. The maximum enrollment shall be 550 students.
  3. Arrival and dismissal times for Lower and Middle school students shall be staggered at a minimum 20-minute interval so that all students do not arrive at/depart from the campus at the same time.
  4. The Owner shall design and construct all improvements at the Belfield campus to meet the minimum standards for LEED certification under the LEED for Schools Rating System and shall obtain such at the minimum level or better within two (2) years from the date of the Certificate of Occupancy.
  5. Stormwater management shall be provided in the form of biofilters for any new impervious surfaces. In addition to the requirements of the County’s Water Protection Ordinance, the majority of roof runoff shall be captured in a rainwater collection and reuse system.
  6. Erosion control shall be provided within the property by the use of sediment trapping measures and diversions. Except for the required transportation improvements listed in Condition 7, off-site easements or work, or variations from the standards, shall not be used.
  7. Prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy, the Applicant shall complete construction of an extended southbound right turn lane from the US 29 ramp onto Faulconer Drive.
  8. A row of 2 ˝” caliper shade trees spaced 40 feet on center shall be provided along the east side of the relocated portion of SR 855.
  9. A minimum of 20-foot deep landscape buffers shall be provided, free of utilities, to screen the parking lot located southeast of the existing football field from the US 29/250 Bypass.
  10. Landscaping may be required to be in excess of the minimum requirements of ARB guidelines or the Zoning Ordinance to compensate for the negative visual impact of the playing fields and parking on the Entrance Corridor.
