Split board backs new Stafford High page 2
Stafford Supervisors decide to keep Stafford High School project on current path

Date published: 11/22/2012


After a public hearing, the board deferred a decision on the rezoning for George Washington's Boyhood Home at Ferry Farm. A heritage interpretation zoning designation would allow the George Washington Foundation to add a reconstruction of the historic home at the site off State Route 3. Supervisors are waiting for confirmation from the foundation's board of trustees that they would place the end of the Belmont-Ferry Farm Trail at the site.

The board will publicize a public hearing on transportation impact fees for new residential development. The fees could be between $2,999 and $5,046 with possible exemptions for projects at certain stages. Supervisors are recommending a one-year delay on collecting fees.

Fees for tent inspections and lot consolidation were reduced. Residents who want to temporarily place large tents in yards, such as for weddings, no longer have to pay $200. And those who want to remove property lines between neighboring lots will be charged $150, a significant reduction.
