Woodside MX hearing February 19

Two large parcels of land are up for rezoning hearings at the Planning Commission meeting Thursday, February 19 at 7:00 p.m.

The Mixed Use (MX) application of Helen F. Lowe, Riley B. Lowe and Woodside Estates Development, L.L.C. seeks rezoning of an A-1 (Agricultural District) parcel of 63.4 acres on Woodside Lane near its intersection with East Patrick Henry Road (Rte. 54). The MX zoning would permit the creation of 232 building lots and residential units for a gross density of 3.66 dwelling units per acre, and approximately 130,000 square feet of retail and office space.

The property is located in the Beaverdam district.

Area residents have cited concerns about traffic volume and flow as well as encroachment on historic land. Traffic plans call for closing of Providence Road at its intersection with East Patrick Henry Road, an action which some Providence Baptist Church members and area residents dislike.

Also that evening will be a hearing for the application by Rockville Development Corporation to rezone 171.2 acres from A-1 to RC (Rural Conservation) in the South Anna District.

The rezoning would permit the creation of 16 building lots for a gross density of one dwelling unit per 10.7 acres.
