Case Notes


1) Connection to sanitary sewer and meeting other relevant utility provider requirements.
2) Provision of street names consistent with the Uniform Street Naming and Addressing System within Knox County (County Ord. 91-1-102).
3) Providing a sight distance easement across the lots on the inside of the horizontal curves with a radius less than 200 ft per the requirements of Knox County Engineering and Public Works during the design plan phase. Any driveways on these lots must be located outside the sight distance easement and shown on the plat, or the driveways must have a depth of 20 ft beyond the sight distance easement if they cannot be located outside the sight distance easement.
4) Partnering with Knox County to implement the recommended turn lane improvements to Beeler Road at the E. Emory Road intersection as outlined in the Fairview Road Transportation Impact Study (AJAX Engineering, revised December 2022). The developer is responsible for designing the turn lane, grading the area, and installing the base stone and binder course. Knox County is responsible for installing the surface course, striping the lane, and installing any necessary signage. The improvements that are the responsibility of the developer must be completed before the first phase of the subdivision is platted. The turn lanes on E. Emory Road recommended by the TIS, are not required to be installed by this condition.
5) Obtaining all necessary permits from TDOT for the improvements at the Beeler Road and E. Emory Road intersection.
6) Providing a 50-ft wide right-of-way stub-out from Road 'B' to the property to the north (parcel 021 04202). The stub-out shall be provided on the Final Plat and identified for future connection. The location of the stub-out shall be reviewed and approved by Knox County Engineering and Public Works during the design plan phase.
7) Installing the curbing and asphalt road surface through the intersection radii referenced in condition #6 above and installing notification of future street connection as required by Section 3.04.C.2.d. of the Knoxville-Knox County Subdivision Regulations.
8) Providing a greenway easement on the Final Plat along Beaver Creek and the unnamed tributary to Beaver Creek, as proposed in the Knox County Greenway Corridor Study (see Exhibit B). The greenway easement shall only be required if the easement for the preferred route crosses the portion of parcel 021 04603 being purchased by the applicant. The greenway easement width and location are to be determined by Knox County Parks and Recreation department during the design plan phase.
9) Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knox County Department of Engineering and Public Works and TDOT.
10) Before certification of the final plat for the subdivision, establish a property owners association or other legal entity responsible for maintaining common facilities, such as common areas, amenities, private roads, and/or stormwater drainage systems.
11) Revising the B&B Builders concept plan (7-SA-22-C) to provide a road connection for the Fairview Road Subdivision.
