Project Description: Subdivision of 1,197 acres into 37 lots, yielding 35 building lots, 1 developed lot, and 1 common lot. Thirty-five single family dwellings will be in the Rural Use land use area and one single family dwelling will be in the Resource Management land use area. The project site includes the entirety of Woodward Lake, a 130-acre impounded lake. Twenty-seven lots, plus the common lot, will have shoreline on Woodward Lake. Access will be provided from Collins Gifford Valley Road and a new 3,000-foot-long road. A Property Owner's Association will own the new road, Woodward Lake and its dam, common area at the north end of the lake, and wetlands at the south end of the lake. Water, wastewater, and storm water management will be provided on each private lot. The applicant's draft Protective Covenants allow single family dwellings, agricultural uses, and open space recreational uses, limit each lot to one principal building and one accessory structure, with no further subdivision, and require any commercial timber harvesting outside the building envelope/limits of clearing to be done under the supervision of a professional forester.
