Spotsy Planning Commission recommends new neighborhood in Lake Anna
Lake Anna is one step closer to having 10 new lakefront homes, despite opposition from nearby homeowners.
The Spotsylvania County Planning Commission on Wednesday recommended approval of an application to rezone 54 acres off Days Bridge Road for the new neighborhood. Commissioner Cristine Lynch cast the sole dissenting vote.
The land’s current zoning designation allows for just one home on the property near the Southwind Shores subdivision. The Board of Supervisors on July 10 is scheduled to make the final decision on the rezoning of the proposed community, called the Estates at Terry’s Run.
Seventeen people spoke about the proposal at a Planning Commission public hearing Wednesday, and all but one of them opposed it. Reasons for the opposition included damage to the environment and the development’s impact to historic areas, including a nearby home that qualifies to be on the National Register of Historic Places.
