Public hearing set for 135-home Warrenton development

Tuesday, Jul. 8 | By Mark Grandstaff | Google+
The Town of Warrenton invites the public to comment on the next hurdle of a 135-home development at the corner of Lee and Falmouth streets.

At 7 p.m. tonight at the town hall at 18 Court St., council will open a public hearing for developer David Dobson's request for a special use permit for "cluster development provisions" for Warrenton Crossing. The provisions would allow for housing lots smaller than the 15,000 square-foot minimum area. In this case, the lots would be 7,500 square feet if the town grants Dobson's request, said town planner Sarah Sitterle.

The cluster development provisions would also demand 30 percent open space for the development, which must be maintained by a home owner's association and protected witha conservation easement, Sitterle said.

Last October, developer David Dobson changed the project's name from Mosby's Crossing after objections that it would be insensitive to create a neighborhood named for a Confederate colonel next to the traditionally black Oliver City Road neighborhood.
