Townhouse plan, Rose Ridge plat sent to P&Z
A final development plan for 22 townhouses at 131 Macey Boulevard has been sent to the Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission. During a review of the Woodford Station Townhouse plan and subdivision plat by the Technical Review Committee (TRC) on Aug. 16, project engineer Tim Thompson was told that a private road, which will provide vehicular access to the townhouse lots, will need an approved name. A final record plat creating 34 residential lots in the Rose Ridge subdivision on Old Dry Ridge Road was also sent to the commission. Planning Director Pattie Wilson pointed out that seven of the proposed lots are not 10,000 square-feet as required by the R-1B (single-family residential) district. "That is concerning to me," she said during TRC's review. "Where are you going to get land to get those (lots) up to 10,000 square feet?" The lots were correctly sized on the preliminary plat, she added. Also, Wilson said a homeowners' association (HOA) needs to be created to maintain common areas in the neighborhood. Ball Homes typically handles those responsibilities until full build-out when residents form an HOA, said project planner Rory Kahly of EA Partners. Bellview Ave. lots A final development plan, subdivision and consolidation plat, and construction plans creating lots at 115 and 121 Bellview Avenue were reviewed by TRC. The property owner (Branch Creek, LLC) intends to donate a consolidated parcel of land (4.2 acres adjacent to the Bellview Avenue lots) to the City of Versailles for storm water management, said Thompson. Because the low-lying property's elevation will need to be raised two or three feet with fill, Thompson said a few trees will need to be removed during site grading. The development plan and subdivision plat were forwarded to the commission, but construction plans were sent to County Engineer Buan Smith and the City of Versailles for letters of approval before a grading permit is issued. Because of the property's elevation differences, Smith said he wanted more specific information on how storm water runoff will be handled. Other plans, plats An amended development plan and preliminary subdivision plat proposing fewer single-family homes in the residential neighborhood known as Edmonds Cross (located off Huntertown Road) was sent to the Planning Commission. With lots being reconfigured under this revised plan, Smith requested an explanation on why a drainage basin's dimensions have changed. A minor amended subdivision plat will remove a detention easement from a lot at 424 Marsailles Road (Charmil Estates), because it's no longer valid with detention improvements upstream, said Thompson. The minor plat was sent to the Planning Commission chair for approval. A minor subdivision non-building plat for Wooldridge Gardens (a residential neighborhood near Woodford County Middle School) that will undo the consolidation of two land parcels for future residential development was also sent to the P&Z chair for approval.
