LAND DEVELOPMENT

DOLLAR GENERAL – 339 N. PIKE ROAD – SITE PLAN

PTV 1078, LLC is proposing to construct the Sarver Dollar General Store located along N. Pike Road (SR 356) located in Buffalo Township, Butler county, PA.  The site is currently meadow land cover and a small gravel driveway area.  The site has no existing buildings.  The proposed development includes the construction of a 9,100 square foot Dollar General retail store, access driveway from N. Pike Road, parking areas, drive aisles, stormwater management facility(s), onsite sanitary disposal system, and other associated site improvements.  Because the area of disturbance is greater than one (1) acre, and application for a general NPDWES Stormwater Permit Authorizing the Discharge of Stormwater During Construction Activities will be submitted to the Butler County Conservation District and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP).

Rec’d               Municipal Authority Comments:  Public water is not available for this location.  A tap for public sewage does exist                             at this location & contractor is approved to use this tap.  Inspection of the tap will need to be coordinated with the                            Authority office as well as a meter set on the well (fee applies).  The work in and around the Authority’s sewage                                force main line is a concern.  There is an area planned for cleaning and grubbing, which crosses the force main                                  in some areas.  The bituminous walking trail and aggregate paving of the private lane crosses the force main in some                          areas.  The Authority requests involvement with pre-construction meetings for work within the Authority’s                                        easement and force main line.  The contractor/owner is Reminded that if there is an issue with the main line and                                work needs done, the Authority is not responsible for damage caused to any paths, walkways, Driveways, etc.., that                          cross the main line.
