Town Board approves final plat for Water Valley South Subdivision
June 5, 2014
The Windsor Town Board unanimously approved the final major plat for the Water Valley South Subdivision at the board’s Monday meeting.
According to planning documents submitted to the town, the 110-acre subdivision will be divided into two sections by New Liberty Road. The subdivision is expected to have 117 single-family residential lots, ranging from about 4,000 to 7,000 square feet.
Patrick McMeekin, the applicant’s representative, said the company’s new subdivision plat reconfigures the lot lines for the units platted on the north side of New Liberty Road.
Water Valley held a neighborhood meeting about the subdivision in December 2013 and three residents attended, but had no questions or concerns with the project, according to town planning documents.
“For the most part, homeowners were happy with the reduction in density. They like the fact that the architecture gets to match what’s across the street in terms of the enhanced architecture,” McMeekin said. “For the most part homeowners were supportive.”
He said the subdivision will meet the same development and architectural standards as the rest of Water Valley.
At its May 21 meeting, the planning commission approved the filing under the condition that any staff comments be addressed prior to the filing being recorded.
Town board members had questions about emergency access to the subdivision, asking if it would be adequate in the event of an evacuation or emergency situation. McMeekin showed board members where the emergency access easement was platted.
Board members approved the resolution with a 5-0 vote. Mayor John Vazquez and board member Jeremy Rose were absent.
