Cumberland County’s Regional Planning Commission approved a subdivision of 40 lots near the Mayland Community during February’s monthly meeting.
A new development, the Stonecrest subdivision, was approved for a preliminary plat.
Stonecrest, LLC, submitted the preliminary plat for the purpose of subdividing 54.96 acres into forty (40) proposed new lots. The lots range in size from 0.82 acres to 2.18 acres, according to Community Planner Tommy Lee with the Upper Cumberland Development District.
Steve Robinson of Stonecrest, LLC attended the meeting and said he had builders, “Who are ready to get started building homes as of yesterday.”
According to Lee, all public improvements; two roads, Stonecrest Loop and Stonecrest Ave.; a six-inch water line; and four fire hydrants have been completed and approved.
Lee told the committee that all lots comply with Cumberland County Subdivision Regulations in regards to lot size, road frontage and setback lines.
The subdivision had been approved once before about four years ago and some of the lots have been changed since that time, so Stonecrest resubmitted the plat.
The subdivision is off Hwy. 70 N. near Mayland.
A preliminary plat was approved after a motion was made by committee member James Perry. Perry’s motion was supported by Stanley Hall and it was unanimously approved.
A final review of the subdivision is expected during the March monthly meeting.
Committee members Russell Smith and Roy Turner, 7th District commissioner, did not attend the meeting.
