BREWER'S STATION ADMENDMENT TO CONDITIONAL ZONING:
Brewer's Station is an approximately 70 acre mixed use development located on both sides of Brewer's Neck Boulevard at the corners of Norsworthy Drive and New Towne Haven Lane. It was rezoned in 2014 to allow for 65 single family residences, 162 multi-family residences, 34 condominiums, and 85,000 square feet of commercial space. Since the rezoning the project has sat dormant until recently when the applicant submitted an application to amend the proffered conditions of the rezoning. The applicant proposed the following changes which the Board of Supervisors approved at their April 19, 2018 meeting.
1. Reduction of Cash Proffers: The cash proffers were reduced by just over one million dollars. The original approval included proffers totaling $2,531,775, based a review of the impacts of the development that proffer was reduced to $1,487,523. Additionally the proffer payments specific to the the multi-family apartments would be delayed until the second apartment building was completed. The applicant has included a provision for a surety to ensure the County is paid if the second building were not to be built.
2. Sewer Improvements: The proffer statement was revised to remove the language which specifies the location for the sewer system and pump station as well as specific length and sizing for utility lines. The proffer changes remove this language to create flexibility in locating system components but still include the requirement for County design approval during plan review.
WHERE AND HOW SHOULD WE GROW?
The results of the second round of public forums will be presented to the Planning Commission at the May 22, 2018 meeting.
