Meeting on Development Areas
The Spotsylvania County Planning Department will hold a meeting Monday night to talk about proposed Urban Development Areas. A state law requires most Virginia localities to designate a high density area (or more) by July 1. This is the first time localities have had to designate the areas. Spotsylvania’s Planning Department has narrowed down its planned UDAs. Now, the county is looking at one area, between Cosners Corner and New Post. There is also a proposal to designate a “redevelopment UDA” in the Four Mile Fork area and one to expand the other UDA toward the proposed VRE station.
To share your opinion on these proposals, come to a public meeting Monday, 6:30 p.m. at the Spotsylvania Community Development Conference Room on the 3rd floor of 9019 Old Battlefield Boulevard. Click here for a flier.
