The Planning Commission of Clarke County, Virginia will hold a public hearing on Friday, September 1, 2017 at 9:00 a.m., or as soon thereafter as the matters may be heard, in the Main Meeting Room, 2nd floor, Berryville/Clarke County Government Center, 101 Chalmers Court, Berryville, Virginia to consider the following matter:

SUP-17-03/SP-17-01, Clarke County Board of Supervisors (Citizens’ Convenience Center). Request approval of a Special Use Permit (SUP) and Site Development Plan for Public Utility Uses and Structures per §3-A-1-a-3-p of the Zoning Ordinance. The purpose is to construct a County-operated citizens' convenience center for drop-off of household waste and recycling to be developed on a two-acre portion of a 149 acre property owned by Stuart M. Perry, Inc. The property is zoned Agricultural-Open Space-Conservation (AOC) District and is identified as Tax Map #16-A-33. The proposed use would be located on the west side of Quarry Road (Rt. 612) approximately 500 feet south of its intersection with Harry Byrd Highway (Rt. 7) in the Buckmarsh Election District.

TA-17-03, Off-Street Parking Exemption for Certain Properties in Millwood. Proposed text amendment to amend Zoning Ordinance §3-A-12, Neighborhood Commercial District (CN). The purpose is to add a new subsection (e) to exempt permitted uses on specific properties in Millwood that are zoned Neighborhood Commercial (CN) District and Historic (H) District from the off-street parking requirements in §4-J. The exemption is established to preserve the historic character of these properties that lack available lot area to provide conforming off-street parking.

Information regarding the above matters is available to the public at the Clarke County Planning Office during regular business hours. Any person desiring to speak on the above matters should appear at the appointed time and place. Written copies of statements are requested but not required.
