    The DRB held a Sketch plan review on October 14 for an application for GW Tatro Construction INC. for the master plan subdivision for "sawmill" parcel located at 366 VT Route 15.

    The proposal involves a phased subdivision maser plan. The first phase involves the development of blocks around the sawmill. The next submittal to the DRB will involve a development plan that includes the details for the sawmill building, streets and sidewalks, blocks, and lots.

    More Details:

    The Illustrative Plan included in this submittal is in keeping with the community vision for the Sawmill Property. Sawmill Village is designed as a compact, walkable, mixed-use community, that exists in concert with surrounding landscapes. The neighborhood will be comprised of homes of various sizes and types that are attractive to a wide range of residents, surrounding a mixed-use neighborhood center. The residential opportunities will include detached single-family houses, rowhouses, cottage courts, small apartment houses and residential above shops, that are close to the street with wide porches and stoops. The neighborhood center will allow a balance of uses and activities, including residential, retail, restaurants, business, civic amenities and parks, providing for the daily needs of the Sawmill residents, and becoming a gathering place for the rest of Jericho. A central neighborhood park will be located in the heart of the village adjacent to the existing Mill Building. The Sawmill Village will evoke the feeling of an authentic, well-loved, traditional Vermont village and will be a vibrant addition to the Town and the region.

    The Village will be developed in phases over the next 10 years as called for by the market. It will utilize the phased subdivision provision in Section 10.12.8.3 of the Code. The Concept Plan shows a proposed Phase 1 area which includes the existing Mill Building and Sawdust Building. There is interest from potential tenants to move into the Mill Building, making it the focus of Phase 1.

    The Concept Plan included in this submittal provides a guide for how the property should develop. It meets the requirements for a Concept Plan showing proposed rights-of-way, futures use for each of the blocks, shared parking locations, open space, and phasing. It doesn’t delineate individual lots, but shows how future lot layout will facilitate efficient circulation and the purpose of the districts. The Plan indicates future uses which are for reference only and don’t obligate the DRB to approve a specific use or category of uses when more detailed, formal plans are submitted in the future. The Concept Plan includes general information related to vehicular pedestrian circulation in future phases, including connections to neighboring properties that may be built out over time. The street cross section meets the requirements of the Character-Based Code. The Village Green indicated on the plan will serve as open space for the neighborhood and be reserved for purposes of sewage disposal and stormwater treatment. There is shared parking located in the center of blocks screened from the street by buildings and parallel parking located on all streets.

    The Illustrative Plan included in the submittal provides one example for how the property may develop over time following the zoning and the intentions of the owner at this time.

    A Development Plan will subsequently be submitted for Phase 1 that provides more detail and meets all the requirements of the regulations.
