Rezoning, wine at the farmer’s market and historic structures
The Fredericksburg City Council will tackle a variety of topics at tonight’s meeting, which begins at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers of City Hall.
- The council will discuss an ordinance that will require getting a certificate of appropriateness from the city’s Architectural Review Board before demolishing a structure in response to an unsafe structure notice. This comes after the General assembly adopted legislation initiated by the city that would permit localities to give more options before a structure faces demolition. It also follows a memorandum of understanding between the city and Historic Fredericksburg Foundation that would prevent situations like the demo of 1407 Caroline St. from happening again.
- The council will discuss allowing wine tastings and sales at the farmer’s market at Hurkamp Park.
- The council will certify Virginia Retirement Contribution rate changes for city and school employees.
- The council will discuss rezoning sections of downtown.
