Document Description
A Tentative Parcel Map application (TPM21-0003) proposing to divide a 74.3-acre parcel zoned AG-10 with two existing residences, an existing covered arena, and four agriculture support structures into four parcels. The parcels would range in size from 13-acres to 23-acres as follows: Lot 1 – 12.7 acres; Lot 2 – 20.2 acres; Lot 3 – 20.3 acres, and; Lot 4 – 21.1 acres. The project includes two (2) Management Plans; one Management Plan to minimize the conversion of important agricultural areas to non-agricultural uses, (MGT21-0049) and one Management Plan to allow disturbance within an ephemeral stream and the setback thereto (MGT21-0054). Proposed parcels would take access from Duggans Road through three access points; Parcel 1 would take access from an existing 12-foot-wide paved driveway, Parcels 2 and 3 would take access from 40-foot wide access easement at the shared boundary line, and Parcel 4 would take access from an existing 34-foot access easement and an existing 12-foot gravel driveway. Proposed Parcel 1 and 4 are currently developed with single-family residential and agricultural accessory improvements which are served by existing septic systems and well water. Building envelopes are designed to avoid sensitive resources to the greatest extent possible.
