MEMORANDUM
TO: Planning Commission Members
 
FROM: Patrick M. Rooney, ASLA, Senior Planner RE: DP-6-14-7722 Tidal Cottages, 24 Thomas Heyward Street Preliminary Development Plan DATE: July 23, 2014
BACKGROUND
On July 15, 2014, the Development Review Committee reviewed application DP-6-14-7722. With this application, the Applicant, Mr. Sean Barth requested approval of a subdivision of 1.61 acres into 9 single-family home sites, infrastructure and required open space (see attached site plan and narrative). As part of the technical review comments provided to the Applicant, the Planning Commission members serving on the DRC, requested that this application be forwarded to the full Planning Commission for review at the next regularly scheduled meeting on July 23, 2014. The authority to make such a request is founded in the Planning Commission Resolution Delegating Development Plan Review Authority to the Development Review Committee. In that Resolution, the Planning Commission reserved the right to forward any Development Plan application from the DRC to the full Planning Commission for any reason. Specific to this Application, the request was made as a result of concerns about circulation, interconnectivity, lot configuration and impacts to adjacent properties. The attached DRC Staff Report outlines the technical review comments provided to the Applicant and specifically notes those items that are not compliant with the UDO. As of the writing of this memorandum, the Applicant has not had adequate time or the opportunity to respond to the comments provided at the DRC meeting. If the Applicant provides a timely response to the DRC comments, then the Town Staff will review and provide additional comments as part of the verbal report to the Planning Commission.

REVIEW CRITERIA

These criteria are provided below followed by a Staff Finding(s) based upon review of the application submittals to date. 1.
 
Section 3.10.3.A. The proposed development must be in conformance with applicable provisions provided in Article 5, Design Standards. 2.

Section 3.10.3.C. If the proposed development is associated with a previously approved Master Plan, then the traffic and access plans shall adhere to the previously approved traffic impact analysis or assessment, where applicable. If an application is not associated with a previously approved PUD Master Plan, then a traffic impact analysis shall be required at development plan submittal. 4.
 
Section 3.10.3.D. The proposed development must be able to be served by adequate public services, including, but not limited to, water, sanitary sewer, roads, police, fire, and school services.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
