Major Initiatives

  • 1986 County establishes first AFDs

  • 1989 Rural initiative results in 3 acre by-right zoning that exists today

  • 1997 Comp Plan suggests conservation easements (PDRs) and subdivision design (rural clusters) for rural open space

  • 1999 Rural Lands Study leads to Purchase of Development Rights (PDR) program and Primary Principles

  • 2003 Comprehensive Plan updated


BACKGROUND

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN Actions for RURAL LANDS

1 Establish incentives for very low density development

2 Consider strengthening requirements for 3-acre conventional development

3 Examine rural cluster provisions

4 Re-evaluate list of A-1 uses


BACKGROUND

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN Standards for RURAL LANDS

1 Preserve natural character

2 Minimize non-agricultural, non-forestal impacts

3 Discourage large-lot residential development

4 Permanently preserve open space


BACKGROUND

RURAL DEVELOPMENT TRENDS

  • 70% of existing dwellings in PSA

  • 30% of existing dwellings in Rural Lands

  • Nearly ¼ of existing Rural Lands dwellings estimated to be in large subdivisions

  • County seeing indications of a renewed interest in major rural subdivisions


BACKGROUND

2005 RURAL LANDS STUDY

  • Charge of Committee:

  • Investigate alternatives for rural residential development consistent with Comp Plan

  • Explore rural clusters

  • Examine potential changes to conventional 3-acre development

  • Review patterns in other Virginia localities



OVERVIEW

How should the Rural Lands develop?


OVERVIEW

Purpose of Workshop #2

  • Build on the feedback from Workshop #1

  • Get public input for Steering Committee and Board on alternate “directions” for the future of the Rural Lands

  • Present wider range of development options besides clustering


OVERVIEW

Tonight’s Format

  • 6:30 - 7:20Presentation

  • 7:30 - 8:30Small Group Sessions

  • 8:45 - 9:00“Dot” Voting Exercise

  • 9:00 - 9:15Next Steps & Adjourn


Results of

Workshop 1


RESULTS

Results of Workshop #1

  • Workshop 1 looked primarily at experience of other counties and cluster options for JCC

  • Based on concerns heard at 1st workshop, steering committee widened focus to look at other development directions

CONTEXT

Existing Regulatory Context

  • Rural Lands primarily zonedA-1(General Agriculture) andR-8(Rural Residential)

  • Uses allowed include agricultural and forestal uses, as well as single family residential properties at a density of1 unit per 3 acres

  • Under current by-right zoning, approximately6,800 unitspossible for development in Rural Lands


CONTEXT

Existing Regulatory Context continued

  • Much of Rural Lands falls outside of public water and sewer facilities (JCSA), requiring individual wells and septic systems

  • Major subdivisions(more than 5 lots) require a central well and water system, which adds significant cost to development in Rural Lands

  • Minor subdivisions(5 lots or less) require dual drainfields, which have historically been restricted by soil conditions of the County



1No Change Development- Keep development patterns the same


1No Change Development- Keep development patterns the same

2Cluster Development -Reorient the development pattern to preserve more open space without changing the density.

a.Voluntarywith incentives

b.Mandatoryrequire cluster but no change in density

3 Lower Density Development - Reduce the development pattern by lowering the density.
