Tricord is waiting for county to join VRE
In an Aug. 4 letter to Planning Director Wanda Parish, Tricord’s Director of Land Development and Planning Timothy Hall asks for a second extension of the 5,900-home Summit Crossing development by the new hospital.
Hall says that Tricord is waiting for the Board of Supervisors to join VRE "before we proceed any further with the Summit Crossing rezoning package."
This is an interesting development in that it basically shows that Tricord may be willing to build a VRE train station by the VRE rail yard and even possibly a parking area, among other things, in exchange for the rezoning. When Summit Crossing was first proposed, they had planned to assist in building a VRE station. When the plans came to the public and a hearing, the VRE station was gone.
"We will submit the revised plans within 90 days of the VRE vote, but no later than April 30, 2010, if no such vote occurs in a timely manner," Hall wrote.
There is no indication if the numbers of homes will change.
