The 5 lots are part of a 9-lot subdivision originally approved nearly 100 years ago, in 1928. The development would move the wetlands along the west side of the development area creating a new channel that can handle a 100-year storm to replace the existing drainage swale. A new pond will be created on the southern side of the property.
The Agency first heard the application at its September meeting, and held a special meeting to conduct a site visit later that month. The public was given opportunities to speak at the September, October, and November meeting. Nearby residents expressed concerns that the development would make existing drainage issues worse, the developer assured them that the proposed changes would actually improve drainage.
At its November meeting, the Agency closed the public hearing, but kept the item open to be discussed and voted on at its meeting this Wednesday.
