Document Description
The proposed project would involve site preparations and construction of a residential community consisting of 68 attached townhome units, each with a two-car garage. Existing homes on three parcels would be demolished and the four parcels combined into a single parcel. The project would include reconfigured and new right of way, new landscaping, public walking trails and creational components and erosions control elements. The completed townhomes would have a gross floor area of 212,117 square feet and would be organized into 14 clusters situated around an east-west running right-of-way based generally on existing private Castor Road. Areas between townhome clusters and outside of the proposed right-of-way would be landscaped with new plantings and trees, partially to replace the removal of existing trees. The project would also include a shared facility called the Community Hub, located at the east entrance. The 1674 sf facility would include a community space, kitchenette, bike storage room, general storage area and 1328 sf outdoor terrance. Finally 2.4 acres of the project site would be dedicated as a Natural State Area. These lands would remain undisturbed by site preparation, construction or landscaping.
