Landscape Berm Update

I spoke to the county engineering department today.  The person I spoke to said the developer cannot put a landscape berm on my lot without having an easement.  Currently, the 15' backyard easement is only for utilities, per the Plat.  So, unless the Plat gets revised to allow a berm, they cannot use that easement.  I don't see them revising the Plat again, because that would delay construction by another four weeks, since the Planning commission that approves the plats only meets once a month.

So. we'll see what the developer does.  However, we may not hear anything until late spring.  Our consolation is that the developer is required to install the landscape berm before the subdivision can get final sign off.
