  • The Camden County Planning Commission has recommended approval of a planned unit development amendment that would replat seven undeveloped lots into 21 single family use lots in the Lake Side at Cross Creek subdivision in the Linn Creek area.
    The 21 lots on approximately 10.8 acres would give this section of the PUD a density of 1.94 dwelling units per acre. The maximum allowed by the Unified Land Use Code for the underlying R-1 low density residential zoning is 4 units per acre.
    Developer Mark Cribb said that he would follow all the county guidelines for development and construction — including a bond to cover infrastructure costs — as well as those of the homeowners association for Lake Side.
    The recommendation follows a few months of the case being under consideration with the planning commission.
    The seven lots were originally accessory use lots under the PUD. Cribb applied in November to replat the property into 33 accessory use lots to build barns for sale to individual both inside and outside the subdivision and area.
    Several residents of the adjacent Cross Creek subdivision as well as some from Lake Side opposed the plan based on density, possible sale outside the neighborhood and the architecture of the proposed barns.
    Subsequently, Cribb modified his proposal to build single family homes in compliance with architecture requirements of Lake Side.
    Some residents still opposed the modified plan out of concern about density as well as that the barns would still be built with only a tiny house to make it legal.
    However, Lake Side covenants restrict size to a minimum of 1,500 square feet. The subdivision also has restrictions on architecture.
