Council approves Telegraph Hill rezoning, roundabout on Lafayette Blvd
The Fredericksburg City Council unanimously approved a rezoning request for the Telegraph Hill development along Lafayette Boulevard.
As part of that, the developer will build a traffic circle, or roundabout, on Lafayette Boulevard at Lee Drive. City staff next must receive the design proposal for the roundabout, which will be located along a steep grade.
The council approved a request to rezone nearly 22 acres along Lafayette across from Lee Drive, the entrance to the Fredericksburg battlefield. The zoning will change from light industrial, general industrial and residential to planned mixed-use development.
Fredericksburg LLC plans to combine that property with an adjoining 24 acres to create Telegraph Hill, a town-center-style development that would include commercial, retail and residential units.
Fredericksburg Park LLC is a group of investors led by managing member David Horstick.
