           Tax Map 126, Parcel 21A



Dear Mr. Smith:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on June 12, 2007, unanimously recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors.


Please note that this approval is subject to the following conditions:

  1. Special Use Permit 2007-11 shall be developed in accord with the concept application plan and building details, provided by the applicant and received February 26, 2007 (Attachment A.)  However, the Zoning Administrator may approve revisions to the concept application plan to allow compliance with the Zoning Ordinance.
  2. The picnic pavilion shall be limited to 800 square feet and shall not include bathroom facilities or vehicular access.
  3. Staff will work with the applicant regarding the capacity or size limitation issue before the request goes to the Board of Supervisors.  Staff will research similar projects to determine what standard condition the Planning Commission has used in the past associated with the area of assembly to make sure the size of the church and the number of people attending will correspond.   


Please be advised that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors will review this petition and receive public comment at their meeting on July 11, 2007.
