Document Description
The construction of a single family residence on the family dairy. A Special Permit is required due to the necessity of having the access road cross over wetland areas within the ownership. The parcel is served with well water and onsite sewage disposal systems. A new sewage disposal system will be developed to serve the proposed residence. The applicant has proposed an approximately 3,100 square foot residence with an attached garage. In order to reach the residence approximately 1,000 linear feet of driveway needs to be improved. The driveway will cross approximately 2,400 square feet of wetlands that have been identified using a one parameter analysis. The wetland delineation prepared for the project identified palustrine emergent wetlands ranked as having relatively low wetland values. The County's Stream Side Management Area Ordinance allows for road crossings within wetland areas with the incorporation of mitigation. The project proposal includes mitigating the impacted wetland areas in four ways: creation of a bioswale and inboard ditch along the side of the driveway, wetland restoration and enhancement, and fencing and planting to enhance 7.89 acres of palustrine forested wetlands which will not be directly impacted by the project.
