Background:

Jim Pollard requests Preliminary Plat approval for Remington Villas – 4th Plat to eventually construct 18 single-family residences.  The 18 lots and homes would be arranged along a street ending in a cul-de-sac extending westward from the stub of E. 19th Street S.

There was a previous Preliminary Plat for this phase approved roughly a decade ago, however it has expired so a new Preliminary Plat is necessary.  The revised plat could not contain 18 lots, as indicated on the drawing, without variances that were granted by the Board of Adjustment on August 17, 2017, for frontages for two of the lots.  Lots zoned R-6 (Single-Family Residential) must be at least 60 feet in width at the building line.  Lots 71 and 72 would be 57 and 56.9 feet at the building lines.

Storm Water:  The similar, previous past Preliminary Plat, accounted for any drainage from the 4th phase of Remington Villas.  No additional onsite detention would be required. The proposed public storm and sanitary infrastructure appears to be proposed within the existing R/W or easements.  No Water Pollution Control projects are planned within the subject area. 

 

Access and Right-of-Way:  The phase consists of a street ending in a cul-de-sac with a sidewalk to be constructed along the north side.

 

Public Utilities: Required public utilities are already available nearby.

 

Fire Protection:  Fire hydrants would be installed between 190101 and 19105, and 19022 and 19026 E. 19th Street Court S.

 

Tree Preservation:  The plat indicates trees to be saved are largely on Tract A.  Other wooded areas on the plat are overdrawn and/or to be removed.

 

Historic Buildings/Archaeological Sites – There are not any apparent historic or archaeological concerns with this property.
