Judgment approval brings
Stonecrest one step closer
by KIMBERLY SCHERERThe passage of a consent judgment for the Stonecrest subdivision at 28 Mile and Campground roads in Washington Township will bring it one step closer to development.
Observer Special Writer
The original plan for the consent judgment was for 82 single family lots - which remains with the new judgment.
The amended plan allows for a change to the homes' setbacks. Originally, the homes were 25 feet from the front and 35 feet from the back, the change swapped those figures around so the front will be deeper to give more of a neighborhood feel and less of a condo community.
The side yard setback was changed from 15 feet to a staggered distance of 5 feet on one side and 10 feet on the other. For example, if one house has the 5-foot setback than the house next door will have the 10-foot setback so there will always be 15 feet between the homes. This change was to better accommodate the angled garages.
Supervisor Dan O'Leary said the walking path that runs through the development was tweaked a bit for better connectivity and some other minor setback adjustments so everything fits nicely.
"The whole idea was to provide a little bit of distance between the neighbors," he said. "It's still a lovely plan."
The Board of Trustees approved the adjustments Oct. 17 to the consent judgment with the stipulations that one of the road names in the development, Granite, be changed as there is already a street named that within Washington. The proposed plan appeared to eliminate two street lights at the entrance and some landscaping, and the approval rested on placing them back into the plan.
