Numerous public hearings scheduled in Stafford

Stafford’s Board of Supervisors at its Oct. 1 meeting will hold numerous public hearings involving an array of proposed business projects in the county.

The Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission will hold a joint public hearing involving a Silver Cos. request for a 192-unit secure apartment complex on 18 acres to serve a federal law enforcement training facility at Celebrate Virginia North. Silver, which dropped a previous request for hundreds of additional apartments at Celebrate Virginia North, needs a rezoning and conditional use permit.

Also on Oct. 1, the Board of Supervisors will hold public hearings on the following matters:

  • A request by Walgreens for a rezoning and conditional-use permit that would allow the company to build a 14,725-square-foot drug store with a drive-through window on 1.5 acres at the southwest corner of U.S. 17 and Commerce Parkway.
  • A request by CVS for a conditional-use permit to build a 14,000-square-foot store with a drive-through at the intersection of Onville and Garrisonville roads. The company will tear down its existing store there after the new one is ready. Road widening projects are affecting the current store, and the new one will be farther off Garrisonville.
  • A rezoning request that could lead to 288 apartments and a new campus for Germanna Community College near Stafford Hospital. Blacksburg-based developer HHHunt wants to build an apartment community just southeast of the intersection of U.S. 1 and Hospital Center Boulevard. Among the proposed proffers that have been submitted in exchange for the rezoning is 25 acres being deeded to Germanna directly south of where the apartments would be.
