RE:      SDP-2006-046 Glenoaks Preliminary Plat

            Tax Map 94, Parcels 15, 16, and 16A


Dear Mr. Powell:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on May 30, 2006, denied the above-noted petition.


The following reasons for denial were identified by the Commission:


Mr. Edgerton stated that there are development lots shown in are areas of critical slopes and Section (e) says that development lots shall not encroach into areas of critical slopes.  


Ms. Joseph stated that under Section (i.) the proposal does not forward the purpose of the Rural Preservation Development and that the public purpose to be served would be fully or better served by conventional development.  If they spread the lots out it is more likely that they would find water.


In order to correct the deficiency, the Commission recommended that the applicant proceed with a conventional subdivision plat with conventional lots.


Please be advised that you may appeal this decision to the Board of Supervisors within ten days of the Planning Commission ruling, or seek legal remedy through the Circuit Court.
