Supervisors OK East Ashland without a public hearing

In their April 28 meeting, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors unanimously and without a public hearing approved the county portion of Ashland Properties, LLC’s East Ashland.

Ashland Town Council approved the town portion of East Ashland in their April 20 meeting.

The first Hanover County project to employ the mixed use (MX) zoning, East Ashland, together with the existing Woodside Estates and the proposed Providence Creek (MX) will have 1 million square feet of commercial and retail space and some 1300 residences.

An additional 33,000 daily vehicle trips are forecast to be added to the busy Route 54/I-95 juncture as a result of these three developments.

  1. It’s interesting that the county code requires “A” public hearing – and they had one, just one, before 4/28. But they chose NOT to have another public hearing on the night they were to vote. One does wonder about the compelling force behind that decision! Tired of working on it, out of ideas? Gee the citizens had many ideas, just not the ones the county wanted.
