The road length and width are as follows: <br /> <br />Road Name Length in Miles Number of Frontage <br />Lots with Houses <br />Pavement/Right-of- <br />way Widths in Feet <br />Peninsula Lane 0.18 9 18/50 <br />Grassland Court 0.06 7 18/50 <br />Total 0.24 16 N/A <br /> <br />The Bluffs at Moorefields Subdivision is located in an Agricultural Residential (AR) zone, west of <br />Dimmocks Mill Road and north of Moorefields Road (Attachment 1). The single family <br />residential subdivision is located within Orange County’s planning jurisdiction and was <br />developed and approved subject to the County’s zoning and subdivision regulations. There is no <br />known subdivision violation associated with The Bluffs at Moorefields Subdivision. <br /> <br />The Bluffs at Moorefields Subdivision was recorded on November 3, 2009 (Book 106/Page 55) <br />(Attachment 2). Peninsula Lane and Grassland Court were designed to public road standards <br />but have been private roads in the interim; they were intended to become public roads when <br />conditions met NCDOT maintenance responsibility and ownership criteria. <br /> <br />Peninsula Lane has a length of 0.18 miles and provides access for nine fully developed lots. <br />The road has a right-of-way width of 50 feet, and a pavement width of 18 feet. The road serves <br />as the singular access road for vehicular ingress/egress at its intersection with Moorefields <br />Road (State Road 1135), and it connects with Grassland Court before terminating at the north <br />end with a cul-de-sac. <br /> <br />1
