CABLE/CLARK PLAN – SUBDIVISION/CONSOLIDATION – 255 & 249 EKASTOWN ROAD – LOT LINE REVISION

James &Terry Clark of 249 Ekastown Road are proposing a lot line revision to convey Tract “A” to Richard & Lois Cable, .502 acres of parcel 15C & combine it with parcel 15B for a total of 1.041 acres in Lot 1, leaving Lot 2 with .577 acres.

Rec’d              $150.00 Lot Line Fee

Rec’d              Lot Line Revision Application

Rec’d              BCPC comments:  BCPC did not have any comments on this plan.

Rec’d              7 Copies of Plan

Rec’d              MABT comments:  The Municipal Authority does not have water service within the vicinity of this project.  The Authority currently provides sewage service to both properties.

Rec’d              Bankson Engineers comments:  Upon cursory review of the Cable/Clark Subdivision/Consolidation Plan it appears that the plan contains the necessary elements for a lot line revision.  Tax Parcel 040-1F79-15B was a non-conforming lot containing 0.539 acres, with this lot line revision this Parcel will contain 1.041 acres but Tax Parcel 040-1F79-15 will become a non-conforming lot containing 0.577 acres served public sewers and well water.

Rec’d              Buffalo Twp. Planning Commission comments:  Favorable recommendation at the 1/2/19 Meeting.
