Keswick rezoning hearing set for Feb. 8 in Spotsylvania

A rezoning request that would allow the development of apartments, townhouses, single-family homes and a new public park near Spotsylvania County’s courthouse area will be before Spotsylvania’s Board of Supervisors on Feb. 8. A public hearing on the 158-acre Keswick property is scheduled for 6:30 that evening at the Holbert building. The developers, who are headed by Jay Jarrell, want to rezone the 158-acre Keswick property from Agricultural 2 to Planned Development Housing 5 to allow for up to 240 apartments, 90 townhouses, 84 age-restricted villas, 100 age-restricted apartments, a 100-unit assisted-living facility and 150 single-family detached homes. The property is at the intersection of Lake Anna Parkway and Old Robert E. Lee Drive, not far from W.J. Vakos & Co.’s Courthouse Village. As part of their application for the rezoning, the developers have offered to build the 34-acre Keswick Park on their property. It would consist of soccer fields, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, a playground, a picnic pavilion and nature trails. They would also dedicate about two-thirds of a mile of right of way to the county for the future extension of Massaponax Church Road to Lake Anna Parkway.
