Hearing set on plan to move Moncure school
The Stafford Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Tuesday to discuss rezoning land for the relocation and rebuilding of Anne E. Moncure Elementary.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the George L. Gordon Jr. Government Center.
The school is currently located on the north side of Garrisonville Road, just east of the intersection with Doc Stone Road. The new site is three-quarters of a mile north on Juggins Road. The 23.7 acres at the new site is zoned agricultural and needs to be rezoned to suburban land use and incorporated into the urban service area for the school to be built.
Suburban land use is primarily residential in nature, but can be used in conjunction with neighborhood and community-oriented centers.
The property is part of the Capital Improvement Plan for 2015, when the new school will be built.
On March 6, 2012, the Board of Supervisors approved resolutions to transfer the land with the current Moncure campus to the county.
In June 2013, the board extended the timeline for the Planning Commission to conduct a public hearing and to allow them to make their recommendation.
The land-use amendment must be completed by the end of this month.
In an earlier session at 3 p.m. today, the board will authorize budget public hearings and advertising the 2014 tax rates, as well as the establishment of a county-wide stormwater service district.
The tentative schedule is to have the public hearing for property tax rates and the budget on April 1 and to adopt them on April 15.
