Executive Summary:

This application is for final plat approval of Voorheis Vale PUD – 11th Plat, Lots Q7-L and Q7-R at 4744/4746 S. Union Avenue.  

Background:

Walker Custom Homes seeks final plat approval for the 11th plat of Voorheis Vale PUD.  Two units, Q7-L and Q7-R, are being platted in this phase.  This building on Lot Q7 is under construction but nearing completion.  The dimensions of the two dwelling units are created via an as-built survey of the building’s poured foundation.  After this plat is recorded, the two dwelling units will be conveyed to the respective unit purchasers with the common ground around the units being conveyed to the subdivision’s homeowners association. 

This development is a continuation of the Voorheis Vale project which started in 2005, was dormant for several years but has restarted under a new developer.  All the streets and utilities in the project are constructed and in service.  This is essentially the same process as done with the many dwelling units in the recently completed Villas at Country Meadows South project.

 

Planning Commission minutes are available in the Community Development Department.

Emergency Justification:

Council mandates that all final plats are to be emergency ordinances to expedite the development process.
