The Board of Commissioners approved the water and sewer extension contract, annexation, zoning and master plan for this project by a 3-2 vote on March 14, 2016. The applicant may now proceed with formal design of the project and submit either construction drawings for the primary site infrastructure (roads, water and sewer) or Special Use Permit applications to seek development approval for specific sites. The master plan is valid for five years.
The initial master plan application requested 100 single-family detached houses, 400 townhouses (mixed two-story and three-story) and 650 apartment units (mixed senior and market rate). The application has been modified to contain 950 dwellings of different types and market target (houses, townhouses and apartments) and 88 affordable rental units, reducing the maximum total dwelling units count to 1,038.
Caruso Homes filed a special use permit application for approximately 100 acres of the Collins Ridge project property to create Phase 1. This area is north of Interstate 85 and south of the overhead electrical lines. Site access is proposed from Orange Grove Street (to be built by the applicant). The application requests approval for 674 dwellings: 326 apartments, 152 townhouses and 196 single family detached houses. The application also includes a community center for the use of project residents and a perimeter walking trail to be dedicated to the town for public access. This dwelling unit mix and other requested components also creates a modification to some of the master plan components, so this was process as a master plan amendment and special use permit.
The information below includes the complete plan set, a detailed memo from the traffic engineer describing traffic impacts and the application form including a narrative and list of waivers requested. Master plan and special use permit information is labeled separately.
The applicant can now proceed with acquiring the property and preparing engineering plans for the required infrastructure. Staff will review these plans, once submitted, to ensure compliance with all town requirements and standards. No further public review of Phase 1 is required unless significant modifications are requested.
The applicant also has an acquisition contract on 58 acres of the Daniel Boone Village property. This contract has a closing (acquisition) set for no later than April of 2018.
