June 14 Meeting Recap

BOS Postpones a Pro Rata Share Agreement Between the County and Chappell Creek, LLC

Chappell Creek, LLC, a subsidiary of Boyd Homes, is the developer for the Chappell Creek development, a 98-lot residential subdivision that requires public utility infrastructure improvements. The subdivision, approved in 2013, included the construction of a 500,000-gallon elevated water storage tank within the development and allowed a temporary connection of the first 20 homes to the Beechwood Manor community well system.  Boyd Homes submitted a revised subdivision plan for review in 2019. Since the prior approval, the 2016 Water and Sewer Master Plan was completed, which identified locations for future water tanks. The Master Plan suggested the approved tank within the subdivision was not ideally located, and that a second tank would be required to support the future growth of the area. To avoid this scenario, staff requested they consider eliminating the tank, provide a new community well system within Chappell Creek that could interconnect with Beechwood Manor and make a cash contribution towards the construction of a future water tank located in accordance with the master plan.  Therefore, the County and Chappell Creek, LLC desired to enter into a pro rata share agreement that would allow them to pay a cash contribution towards a future tank.  Furthermore, the County plans to extend the Central Water System to the Route 10 corridor and abandon the existing wells used to serve customers of the Beechwood Manor Community.  Improvements to the existing waterlines within Beechwood Manor are required prior to the connection of the Route 10 water line. Therefore, in lieu of the cash contribution for the future tank, Boyd Homes agrees to complete these improvements within one year of the executed agreement.

The Board of Supervisors at its June 14 meeting decided to postpone the Agreement to its July 12 meeting and instructed the County Engineer to schedule a public meeting with Beechwood Manor and Jordan on the James residents to address any concerns regarding additional connections to the Beechwood Manor/Jordan on the James central well system.
