A public hearing was held on this rezoning at the Planning Commission on October 16, 2007 and the Commission recommended approval of the rezoning to the Board of Supervisors. This motion for approval was conditioned upon the following being addressed:
o The grading on lot 28, as shown on the application plan, will not exceed 3:1 slopes or less and if retaining walls are needed, they will be low in height and terraced.
o The applicant presented an alternate street section that met the ordinance requirements and did not require a waiver of the planting strip requirements of the Subdivision Ordinance, which the Commission recommended be reflected on the revised plan.
o Additional Affordable Housing proffer language, to address the situation if there is not a person to occupy the affordable housing that the appropriate amount would be paid to the County for affordable housing.
o Additional proffer language to further address storm water management impacts of the rezoning, using a standard of 80 percent removal as opposed to the 60 percent standard.
The applicant submitted revised proffers and application plan following the Planning Commission meeting on October 19, 2007, which satisfactorily address all conditions included in the Commissions recommendation of approval for the rezoning. (Attachments A-Proffers, B-Application Plan)
Staff recommends approval of ZMA 2007-005 with the attached proffers and application plan.
