The Westchester subdivision was reviewed and approved by the city in multiple phases, said Ron Satterfield, city of Wilmington planning manager.
The gross land area totals approximately 55 acres.
It was developed as a by-right use in the R-15 single-family zoning district. The yield was 130 lots, Satterfield said.
He said the subdivision was initially constructed with minimal public infrastructure, and city water and sewer infrastructure was added in Westchester “after lots began to be recorded with well and septic.”
The streets in Westchester were dedicated to be public, Satterfield said.
All lots created within the subdivision are now accessed by publicly maintained streets, he said.
“Westchester has been served by public water and sewer since this additional public infrastructure was installed to serve the subdivision,” Satterfield said.
Satterfield said the plan for Phase 1 of Westchester, with 62 lots, was submitted and approved in 1970.
The plan for phases 2 and 3, consisting of 61 lots, was submitted and approved in 1970 and 1971.
Phase 4, with seven lots, was submitted and approved in 1988.
Satterfield said the development entity for Westchester was Traco Development, with Raiford Trask Jr. as the principal.
Planning, surveying and engineering services were provided by Stocks and Matzke Surveying and Engineering.
