Project Description

The project is a proposal to subdivide two lots into five lots (summary provided in table below).

The subject property has a combined area of 1.78 acres (77,513 square feet), and is currently developed with two single-family residences and has frontage along Auburn Street and Albion Street.

The proposed project includes the creation of four new lots (Lots 1-4) for the purpose of single-family residential development, and one new lot (Lot 5) for multi-family residential development. Per the project plans, Lots 1 and 2 would be reserved for new single-family residences, Lots 3 and 4 would contain the existing single family residences, and Lot 5 would be reserved for six condominium units (six units in two 3-plex configurations).

Lots 1 and 2 are proposed to take access via a new driveway from Albion Street, Lots 3 and 4 would continue to be accessed by an existing shared driveway, and Lot 5 is proposed to take access from a new 24-foot wide private driveway from Auburn Street.
