The Hummel Subdivision is located at 154 Ridge Road, Pennsylvania Furnace. The purpose of this plan is to subdivide existing tax parcel 24-7-14E, creating revised tax parcel 24-7-14E and create the new Proposed Lost 1 and 2. Revised tax parcel 24-7-14E will remain with home and garage. Lot 1 and Lot 2 shall be sold as a planned lots for future single-family residential homes. The following modifications have been granted by the Board of Supervisors.
• To not pay fee-in-lieu of parkland for the residential subdivision
• Request for relief from Chapter 22.506.3 Water Supply-Fire Apparatus Access to not widen the private Ridge Road to be 18’ wide.
• The Board of Supervisors at its May 20, 2019 meeting reviewed the requested modifications and request to not include sidewalks. The modifications were granted, and the Board determined that sidewalks do not have to be installed.

Staff Recommendation: That the Planning Commission recommend the Board of Supervisors approve the Hummel Subdivision, Subdivision of Tax Parcel 24-7-14E, contingent upon the remaining conditions being met, which are outlined in the Interim Planning and Zoning Director’s memo dated May 23, 2019.
