Document Description
Application for a tentative map subdivision for the phased subdivision of Master Parcels 2 and 3 encompassing approximately 185 acres in the Town of Samoa into 320 parcels. The project includes a Coastal Development P,ermit for the subdivision and for the following: Upgrade of all utilities, including water supply and emergency controls, sewage collection, electrical services, street lighting and telephone/cable services; construction of subdivision improvements and installation of utilities; demolition of various sheds and the Fireman's Hall building; building renovations and site grading in conjunction with a lead paint hazard abatement program for existing houses; reconstruction of existing hardscapes and the construction of new roads, parking areas, bus stops, trails, sidewalks and other pedestrian and bicycle facilities within the Town of Samoa. The project also includes a Planned Unit Development Permit to establish setbacks from property lines in the existing Town of Samoa based on the locations of existing buildings; minimum lot sizes will be reduced to 2,000 s.f. Lot coverage will be increased to 80%. And parking standards will be modified to allow for areas of common parking rather than having all parking either on-site or in front of each residence. Due to dune, wetland and forest Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas (ESHAs) and setbacks therefrom, there will be large areas of open space within the proposed development. Parcels will be served by community sewage and community domestic water supply systems. Exceptions to solar shading requirements are requested to accommodate the existing developed housing areas and planned unit development standards for new construction. All development will comply with the Samoa Town Master Plan Overlay requirements and the development standards specified for Samoa in the coastal zone ordinance.
