Staff Recommendation
1. Connection to sanitary sewer and meeting other relevant utility provider requirements.
2. Provision of a street name consistent with the Uniform Street Naming and Addressing System within Knox County (Ord. 91-1-102).
3. If any building construction is proposed within the 50' buffer area around the designated sinkholes/depressions (including the depressions), a geotechnical report must be prepared by a registered engineer to determine soil stability and that report must be submitted to the Knox County Department of Engineering and Public Works for consideration. Any construction in these areas is subject to approval by the County following review of the report. Engineered footings must be designed for these areas. For those lots that do not have a building site outside of the 50' buffer, approval by Knox County will be required prior to final plat approval. The sinkholes/depressions and 50' buffer shall be designated on the final plat even if they are approved to be filled.
4. Providing a geotechnical study for lots 34-36 during permitting.
5. Providing a minimum 200-ft sight distance easement on Lots 48, 49, & 60. The driveways on these lots must have a depth of 20-ft past the sight distance easement if the driveway cannot be fully located outside the easement.
6. Installation of the pedestrian connection (sidewalk) between Lot 3 and 4, from the proposed road to Hoff Lane, and the sidewalk segments required by the Knox County Sidewalk Ordinance, with the timing of the sidewalk installation to be determined during the design plan phase.
7. Meeting all applicable requirements of the Tennesee Department of Transportation.
8. Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knox County Zoning Ordinance.
9. Meeting all applicable requirements of Knox County Engineering and Public Works.
10. Prior to certification of the final plat for the subdivision, establishing a property owners association that will be responsible for maintenance of all common areas, amenities, and drainage facilities.
11. Placing a note on the final plat that all lots will have access only to the internal street system.
12. Submitting the certification of design plan approval form to Planning staff as required by the Knoxville-Knox County Subdivision Regulations prior to final plat approval.
