Project Description: Subdivision of 416 acres into 15 lots ranging in size from 10 acres to 75 acres. One lot contains an existing single-family dwelling. Fourteen lots will be vacant building lots for construction of a single-family dwelling. Seven lots will have shoreline on Maple Lake, a private impounded lake located entirely within the project site. All lots will be accessed via private driveways from adjacent public roads, including two pairs of shared driveways. No common lots or subdivision roads are proposed, though a 20-foot-wide right-of-way and dock will provide access to Maple Lake for owners of shoreline lots that would otherwise have to cross wetlands to access the shoreline. Thirty additional building rights will be retained and allocated among the fifteen lots. Seventy-eight building rights will be voluntarily extinguished.
