Background Discussion
  • A temporary real estate sales office at 8268 US 301 North was proposed and received approval from the Building Department (Construction Permit #12021024). A 2-inch water service was proposed. The Utilities Department reviewed the connection and then asked that the proposed service increased in size to a 6-inch water main that would be owned and maintained by the County and would also serve three other adjacent lots. The Developer was told that the County would participate in the cost to increase the size of the pipeline in accordance with Comp. Plan Policy
  • Quotes from three different construction companies were obtained by the Developer to install both the 2-inch and 6-inch pipelines. Costs from the lowest quoting company were used to compute the County's cost to participate in the upsizing.
  • The County has cooperated with the landowner, Laura Goldberg, Trustee of The Parkway Land Trust #1 Agreement, to produce a standard participation agreement for the size increase.
  • The County's Deputy Attorney has reviewed and corrected the Participation Agreement. The document has been signed by the Landowner on January 18, 2013.
  • The cost of the County's participation was determined to be $7,180.00 for upsizing about 550 feet of 2-inch pipeline to 6-inch. This is a fair price for the upgrade.
