Albemarle County Service Authority

 

PROPOSAL:

The applicant is requesting this rezoning in order to extend the sunset date of a proffer from 2006 to 2016, to accommodate an existing tenant. The property is located on the south side of Rt. 240 approximately 0.7 miles west of the intersection of Rtes. 240 and 250 in the community of Crozet.  Attachment A is a copy of the revised proffers.

 

BACKGROUND: 

In 1996, Albemarle County approved a rezoning with proffers on this property. At that time, the Albemarle County Service Authority was using some, but not all of the buildings on the site. The Authority proposed to lease two of the buildings to a private company for use as a contractorís office/equipment storage yard and/or warehousing. Two proffers accompanied the rezoning. One covered the proposed uses and the other included a sunset date in 2006. The Authority still does not need these buildings for its use and would like to continue to lease them to the current tenant. The Authority is requesting this rezoning in order to extend the sunset date in the proffers from 2006 to 2016.

 

DISCUSSION/FINDINGS:

Staff has identified the following factors that are favorable regarding this rezoning request:

 

                     The rezoning is in conformity with the Land Use Plan designation.

                     The extension of the sunset date will allow an existing use to continue, which will benefit the Authority. By leasing the unneeded buildings, the Authority ensures that they will be maintained by the tenant.

                     The tenant, Paulís Lawnmower Service, provides a needed service in the Crozet community.

 

Staff has identified the no factors that are unfavorable regarding this request:tc  \l 2 "SUMMARY"

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends approval of this rezoning with the proffers.
