Dear Mr. Shifflett:


The Albemarle County Planning Commission, at its meeting on December 9, 2008, by a vote of 6:0, recommended approval of the above-noted petition to the Board of Supervisors with the 5 conditions recommended by staff at the meeting with the understanding that the 5th condition will be further modified before the Board of Supervisors’ meeting to reflect suggestions by the County Attorney.


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

  3. There shall be no day care center or private school on site without approval of a separate special use permit.
