All of the townhomes will be constructed on the part of the lot located west of Schutt Road. These townhomes will be located on their own fee simple lots, with a minimum lot area of 3,000 square feet. Each townhouse will have three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a two car garage. Units will range in size from approximately 2,230 to 2,350 square feet of livable area. The livable area includes a finished basement but excludes the garage area. The remaining common area land parcel, on the west side of Schutt Road will be owned and maintained by a Home Owners Association (HOA) and will contain the infrastructure and amenities serving the development.

The project proposes three access points, one originating at Maple Fields Drive and the other two beginning at Meadow View Drive. The internal road network contains several looped streets. All buildings will be served by Town of Wallkill water and sewer utilities. Stormwater runoff will be collected in a network of structures, pipes, and swales. Runoff will be conveyed to on-site stormwater treatment and retention/detention facilities. Gas and electric services will be provided by Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. Solid waste will be removed from the site by a private refuse hauling company contracted by the HOA.

The portion of the parcel on the east side of Schutt road is approximately 13.57 acres and is designated as the Conservation Area of the proposed Conservation Subdivision. The Conservation Area will be gratuitously offered for dedication to the Town of Wallkill to be used in accordance with the conservation subdivision regulations Section 249-80 I.
