LEWISBORO The plan for Oakridge Gardens, a proposed 46-unit condo development on Route 123 in Vista, took another step forward when the town Planning Board granted developers several approvals last week.
The board approved a preliminary subdivision that would allow developers to split one of two condo plats into two.
There are two parcels, a northern and southern, and the developers received permission to split one of them in two for the purposes of phasing, said Aimee Hodges, the Planning Board secretary.
The developers also received amended approvals for a wetland permit, stormwater permit, and site development plan.
Hodges said those approvals were originally given to the original developer, but that developer walked away from the project. Smith Ridge Housing, LLC the propertys owners, decided to move forward with the project on its own, but sought amendments to those original approvals, which were given at the July 12 meeting.
For the next step of the approval process, the Planning Board has set forth a resolution that stipulates a roadmap for what is to be done next. The 29-page resolution consists primarily of code requirements and other conditions that will have to be met by Smith Ridge Housing. The developers will have six months to meet the resolutions requirements, but they may also employ two extensions if they are needed.
[The project] is moving forward, but [developers] also still have to go before the architectural review board, Hodges said. They do a review of the colors and act as advisors to the Planning Board.
Oakridge Gardens will be a separate development from the existing Oakridge complex and have its own homeowners association, Hodges said.
