The new community will be developed by Elm Street Development and Michael Harris Development, Inc.

The goal for the new community is to create a neighborhood that is a logical extension of and complementary to the existing homes and neighborhoods in the area. The plans include a number of features to help achieve the goal.

The lots on average are almost twice as large as the required minimum lot size in the R-1-B Zone District. Specifically, the lot sizes range from 7630 to 18,540 square feet with an average of about 9900 square feet and are similar in size to the lots in the existing neighboring communities. Colony Hill lots are approximately 8,500 square feet. Proposed new lots are almost 10,000 square feet.

The lots are also designed and organized to preserve the existing landform and minimize grading to the extent possible. This allows for retention of many of the existing trees and retaining walls that exist on the site today.

All of the homes will be required to comply with a set of architectural controls and guidelines. The purpose of the guidelines is to maintain an architectural quality and continuity between the new neighborhood and the already established, existing communities in the area. This encourages the overall sense of neighborhood and community and enhances the overall value of the larger community.

Going forward as the design plans are further developed and refined, Elm Street Development will make minor adjustments to the design, including lot sizes and configurations, grading, tree preservation, etc.
