Project Description: A seven-lot subdivision to create six vacant building lots ranging in area from 3.05-acres to 4.65-acres, and one 162±-acre lot containing existing residential development. A potential location for the construction of one single-family dwelling and an individual on-site wastewater treatment system and well water supply has been identified for each of the 6 building lots. All six building lots will be accessed by a private road extending from Silver Lake Road. The access road, trail to the shoreline, and common area along the shoreline of Newberry Pond will remain with the 162±-acre lot and an easement will be provided to individual lot owners for access to the six building lots and use of the common area.

Project Description: Construction of a second single-family dwelling on the 5.6± acre Rural Use portion of the project site (tax Lot 3.1). The 5.69± acres already contains one single-family dwelling, and thus the proposal is a subdivision into sites for the purposes of Agency jurisdiction. The new single-family dwelling (maximum footprint of 3,000 square feet, maximum height of 40 feet) will be located approximately 160 feet from the shoreline of Lake George and will be served by its own on-site wastewater treatment system and on-site water supply; the wastewater treatment system absorption area will be located on the easterly side of Shelving Rock Road in the Resource Management area (tax lot 3.7). The driveway will follow an existing dirt road. Existing trees will be retained between the dwelling and the lake.
