East West Communities has submitted a Special Use Permit (SUP) application to James City County for their Chickahominy Summerplace development. They are requesting a reduction of the minimum lot size to allow for a rural cluster development for a portion of the proposed Summerplace subdivision. East West Communities is currently selling lots/ homes in their Liberty Ridge Community on Centerville Rd near DJ Montague Elementary .
Siteplan for Summerplace showing new one acre lots….
In 2009 plans were submitted for the development of Summerplace which consists of 164 single-family lots and areas of common open space on 924 acres of land. A total of four vehicular access points were planned along the frontage with Jolly Pond Road. The entire subdivision is located outside the Primary Service Area (PSA) and will be served by a central well and individual septic systems. Preliminary approval for the project was granted on June 30, 2009, by the JCC Development Review Committee (DRC).
The new SUP request proposes to reduce the minimum lot size of up to 150 residential lots from three acres to one acre which would permit the majority of the subdivision to be developed as a rural cluster. The remaining 14 lots are not subject to this SUP application and will retain their minimum lot size of three acres. Other changes proposed by this SUP request include:
• The reduction of vehicular access points located along Jolly Pond Road from four to two.
• An increase in open space area. A total of 514 acres of open spaces will be provided out of the 767 acre area.
County planning staff is recommending the commission approve the proposal, which would then be passed on to the county board of supervisors for final approval.
