South Boston Town Council approves rezoning
SoVaNow.com / September 12, 2013South Boston Town Council on Monday night unanimously approved the rezoning of Somerset and an adjoining two acre tract after the Town’s Planning Commission recommended the change.
Owners of Somerset, the DECCA group and LGCK, Inc. had requested the rezoning releasing plans to sell Somerset and the adjoining property to Commonwealth Assisted Living of Charlottesville. The new owners have expressed plans to expand the assisted living facility and needed the additional land for that expansion.
But residential owner Don Bagwell who told Council members that he also represented several other property owners in the community opposed the rezoning. He said he feared that property values would decline while others worried about parking and traffic patterns.
After about an hour of discussion Council members cast their vote to rezone the property.
In other business on Monday evening Council delayed making appointments to the Lake Country Development Corporation. Council did, however, approve the proclamation designating the week of September 17-23 as Constitution Week which was presented to them by Nancy Chandler, Regent of the local chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution. 306
