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

slide10
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

slide11
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
slide12
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
slide14
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

  • 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
slide22
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

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
