The development summary in the Plan and the LOI are still calling out a substantial shortage in commercial acreage. Three (3) acres or 130,680 square feet is shown on sketch plan. You are calling out 26,000 square feet which is 2.5 acres less, roughly. Please email me if that is intended. If not please correct, and resubmit as soon as possible. 6/11/2020 4:41:29 PM

Development Summary
The figures utilized assume development in 2019; the applicant must get the sketch plan approved, then a rezoning, the preliminary plan and final plats. It is more likely 2020-2021 before the entitlements will occur.

Financial Plan
The Financial Plan assumes 200 homes built out by 2020, this seems unrealistic given the number of applications to be completed and the infrastructure that will need to be designed and installed. The home value used is $it is $351,000.00 in 2020.
The plan also shows 100 lots being delivered in 2019- that is impossible. 2020 may be a push to deliver lots.
There is now 3 acres of commercial shown. 13000 SF may be low as written also there is a large difference in the proposed density on the proposed sketch plan verses the plan. The service plan is conservative which seems a better end-result, rather than over estimating-thank you.

The Black Forest Land Use Committee has already expressed its opposition to this development because of high density issues.

The committee has no input to this proposal except to say that new residents will be paying a lot of money to fund this metro district and we hope this will be make clear to them before they purchase lots.
