SD#20-026: Final Plat of Somerset Addition, Phase III, on 53.744 acres located at 2201 Chambers Street by Bloomfield Homes, L.P., owner/developer; and LJA Surveying, surveyor

Comments and Considerations
The purpose of this plat is to create 204 residential lots and 13 open space lots. This plat substantially conforms to the approved preliminary plat except for the following:

• Lots have been shifted on Block 39 to add a new HOA lot to accommodate drainage;

The applicant is requesting variances to the corner lot width on the following lots in Phase III:

Lots 1 and 25, Block 38;
Lots 1 and 26, Block 37;
Lots 1 and 20, Block 36;
Lots 11 and 12, Block 41;
Lots 15 and 16, Block 40; and
Lot 18, Block 35.
