The Chesterfield County Planning Commission will be deciding on three diverse cases in the Dale and Bermuda Districts this month. On November 15, the commission will delve into cash proffers, a beg for forgiveness over permission and a property that may need to be increased before it can be built on.
As the planning commission waits for definitive direction on cash proffers, the fourth case in as many months, Chesterfield Business Partners LLC and Kingsland Towncenter LLC are pursuing relief on proffers on the residential portion of its development on Iron Bridge Road and on both sides of Kingland Glen Drive. The existing zoning limits development to a maximum of 740 dwelling units.
Holiday Signs is seeking permission to improve and expand the size of the Friendly’s ice cream and restaurant sign. During a recent storm the sign was damaged and then replaced. Planning indicates the new sign exceeds size requirements. The property owners have illegally refaced the sign and are now seeking approval for the sign to remain.
Two deferrals (postponements) requested by the Chesterfield County Planning Commission on since June has Cambridge Construction in the batter’s box again at the commission’s November 15 meeting. Cambridge has proposed changing the zoning on a shallow piece of land north of Wawa on Iron Bridge Road to permit the construction of a retail/office complex.
Chesterfield’s planning staff has indicated that while the proposed zoning fits the new comprehensive plan vision passed last month by the Board of Supervisors, the property does not have enough depth to accommodate the improvements.
The planning commission considers cases once a month at the public meeting room in the county complex at 10001 Iron Bridge Road.
