Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPA) Initiation
Supervisors Vote March 6, 2pm BOCS Meeting
No Public Hearing - Speakers Welcome at Citizen's Time
Mid-County Park and Estate Homes development application in the Rural Crescent proposes to:
Increase residential densities by more than 300%, from approximately 32 to 118 new homes.
Extend public sewer into the protected rural area, the only tool locally available to prevent higher density developments from leapfrogging through the Rural Crescent.
In exchange, the application proposes to create a 195-acre linear park, which would use much of the unbuildable land to form an isolated ring around the new residential community.
Supervisors say they are committed to their Strategic Plan goal to increase the commercial tax base to 35% of overall tax revenue. How would opening the Rural Crescent to increased density help accomplish this goal?
