Albemarle City Council on Tuesday approved a preliminary plat for a 21 lot subdivision on Knollwood Lane.

The subdivision, which would be called Knollwood Park, consists of about 14 acres and is in the city’s R-10 Single Family Residential Zoning district.

Though the plat doesn’t show any open space, roughly 10 percent of the total acreage will be for open space along Mountain Creek.

The developer of the plat is required to implement a new street to be stubbed out to the adjacent property to the north for the purposes of future development. They currently have this set up with a 26-foot wide street with mountable curb and gutter. 

A five-foot sidewalk is also proposed on one side of the development.
