Abstract

This project proposes 1) the construction of a road to be located in a Rural Forestry zone. This private road would require clearing and grading for roughly 10,300 linear feet of roadway. The total project impact area produced by road construction would be approximately 11.05 acres in size 2) the construction of 26 residential homes on 20-acre parcels along with the necessary water, sewer/septic, power, and road infrastructure. Due to a lack of detail on the location of these houses they could potentially impact any part of the 520 acres set aside for residential home construction.
