City portion of Summerfield coming before Planning Commission

The portion of the proposed Summerfield subdivision that is in Fredericksburg will be before the city’s Planning Commission on Nov. 14.

A public hearing will be held that night on plans for 68 townhouses on about 15 acres not far from the intersection of U.S. 1 and Hudgins Road near Kingswood.

Marion E. Hicks owns the land where Summerfield is proposed.

Plans for Summerfield also call for 84 single-family homes and 23 townhouses on the Spotsylvania County side.

Hicks’ efforts to develop the Spotsylvania side of the land have been mired in controversy. The former Spotsylvania supervisor has asked the county to reduce the proffers he must pay, but so far those requests have been denied. Hicks won’t be able to ask again until this coming March.

Spotsylvania’s Planning Commission approved the preliminary plat for that portion of Summerfield in August.
