The action involves the proposal to subdivide a 14.62 acre vacant parcel in the central-western portion of Town into thirteen (13) one acre, single family building lots and a fourteenth (14) lot to be used as a stormwater detention parcel, to improve the unimproved sections of Sherman Avenue and Livingston Street, and to construct an emergency access road from the main access point (Sherman Avenue) to Dorado Drive for emergency vehicles only. The proposed residences would be provided public water and sewer service by extending existing mains already traversing the Property. A stormwater management system consisting of a detention basin and dry wells on the individual lots is proposed to be established as part of the development. Approximately 38 percent of the site along the Property's western side will be disturbed; 62 percent will remain undisturbed.
