During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a contract with Great Ecology for an Open Space Management Plan and Natural Areas Inventory Update. With 18 Open Space properties, six of which have been acquired since 2014, the Town will work with the consultant to create its first Open Space Management Plan in order to understand, manage, and preserve the ecological integrity of the Town’s entire Open Space portfolio. In addition, the consultant will update the Town’s Natural Areas Inventory, which was last updated in 2007.
The Board approved a resolution accepting dedications as shown in the Colliers Hill Filing No. 2A Final Plat and authorizing the approval of the Colliers Hill Filing No. 2A Development Agreement.

The Final Plat consists of 58 single-family lots and 7 tracts and is a replat of Tracts 4 and 5 of the Bridgewater Master Subdivision. This is the last remaining filing of Phase 1 of Colliers Hill.
The Board approved on Second Reading an ordinance approving the Dearmin property rezoning. The purpose of the ordinance is for a rezoning from RP-3-Rural Reservation 3 to LR-Low Density Residential, NMU-Neighborhood Mixed-Use, and AG/OS-Agricultural/Open Space. The Dearmin property is located south of Erie Parkway, east of County Road 5 and north of County Road 6. The applicant is proposing 765 dwelling units on approximately 266.66 acres; this equals a gross density of 2.87 dwelling units per acre. Also included in the proposal is 35,000 sq. ft. of commercial space located in the mixed use area adjacent to Erie Parkway. These zoning designations fit with the anticipated uses and level of intensity of use in the Comprehensive Plan.
