VACATION/ REPLAT
THE TRAILS FILING #7
Carol Weber

Request by RMBG, LLC #1, Murlin H. Jr and Myrno C. Coffey, and Douglas G. and Becky E. Woods as Owners request the approval of a Vacation and Replat of The Trails Filing No. 7 to The Trails Filing 7A, 7B, and 7C. This replat will reduce the number of lots with replat 7A, and correctly depict drainage easements with replats 7B and 7C. Lots 19, 20 and 21 are currently configured as three lots which will be reconfigured as two lots (Lots 1 and 2 of Trails Filing No. 7A). The change in these three lots to two lots is due to the size and location of existing wetlands, which would have made the original Lot 20 unsuitable for any construction. Lots 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 are correcting drainage easements (replats 7B and 7C). This replat request is currently zoned RR-2.5 (Residential Rural) (formerly know as RR-2 - Rural Residential) and is approximately 28 acres in both the Black Forest Preservation and the Falcon / Peyton small area plans.
