It will be a busy night for the City Council

The Fredericksburg City Council has seven public hearings scheduled tomorrow night. Here’s an agenda for the whole meeting. 

  • The Eagle Village Hotel will be back on the agenda, this time asking for a change to city incentives with the Economic Development Authority. The change will be so that the developer can qualify for financing through the  Virginia Tourism Development Financing program. 
  • Eagle Village will also be up for second reading  to rezone about two acres of land within the Eagle Village shopping center in preparation for a hotel to be built later this year. The special-use permit the developer has requested for parking will be on first reading.
  • The zoning changes to downtown, recently discussed at-length by the planning commission, will be up for approval. The changes would expand the downtown commercial district and establish a parking district, among other things.
Here are a few other notable things on the agenda.

In a work session, at 5:30 p.m., there will be discussion about the Telegraph Hill traffic analysis.

The regular meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers of City Hall, 715 Princess Anne St.
