Somerset zoning request goes to South Boston council

SoVaNow.com / September 09, 2013
South Boston Town Council convenes tonight for its regular monthly meeting at Council chambers on Yancey Street beginning at 7 p.m.

Council will conduct a public hearing on a recommendation from its Planning Commission to rezone one parcel and two acres of another parcel from R-1 low density residential to B-2 general business. The sites are located off Hamilton Boulevard.

The current owners of Somerset Assisted Living, the DECCA Group, and owners of the other parcel, LGCK group, are seeking the rezoning. The DECCA Group plans to sell Somerset to a Charlottesville company that wants to expand the facility and requires additional land to do so.

In other business, Council has requested that a representative of the Virginia Coalition appear at the meeting to provide information on a request for $10,000 from the town. The Virginia Coalition is an anti-uranium mining group consisting of business leaders in Halifax County and other area communities.

Since the town’s budget already has been set for the year, Council members said they needed additional information before making any commitment to fund the effort.

Council members are also expected to make several appointments to the Lake Country Development Corporation.
