Character of the Area:

The 47 acre parcel where Misty Mountain Camp Resort is located is bifurcated by Misty Mountain Road. The camping area is located in the northeast portion of the parcel closest to Rockfish Gap Turnpike (see Attachment A). The Community Building and bathhouse, are located in the northwest portion of the parcel, also along Rockfish Gap Turnpike. A large, open field is located south of the Community Building and bathhouse. Stockton Creek passes through the property approximately 70’ south of the field. The entire parcel south of the Creek is densely wooded, and large swaths of critical slopes exist adjacent and perpendicular to the Creek in this area. The properties surrounding the campground are designated Rural Area in the Comprehensive Plan, and are included in the Rural Area Zoning District. These properties are generally characterized by large farms and single-family residential lots. Several parcels north of Rockfish Gap Turnpike are under conservation easement, and the parcel directly northwest of Misty Mountain Camp Resort is located in the Yellow Mountain Agricultural/Forestal District.

 

Specifics of the Proposal:

The applicant is requesting a special use permit for a special event that would allow one three-day music festival per year. The festival has already been scheduled to be held this year from October 2 – 4. The music festival would have no more than 500 people in attendance per day and tickets would be sold in advance, in order to ensure that the number of people on the site at any given point for the special event would be managed. Any unsold tickets would be sold at the gate the day of the event. As the 500 person request exceeds the number of participants allowed by special use permit for a special event in the Rural Areas, the applicant has requested a waiver for Section 5.1.43-(e.5) of the Zoning Ordinance, which has been included with the application.

 

The hours of operation for the music festival would be from noon to 10:00 pm. The primary stage would consist of a semi-truck that converts into a stage, and it would be located in the open field south of the proposed parking area behind the structure labeled #50 on the concept plan (Attachment B). A building permit would not be required for the temporary stage. A second stage would be located in the Community Building labeled #56 on the concept plan. As the noise would exceed sound levels allowed in the Rural Areas (60 dBA during the day and 55 dBA during the night), the applicant has requested a waiver for Section 4.18.04 of the Zoning Ordinance, which is also included with the application. A condition has been offered to restrict noise levels to no higher than 65 dBA during the event as measured from an adjacent property (Condition 14). Fifteen vendors selling food, wine, beer, and souvenirs would set up the first day of the event and would be dismantled and removed from the property the Monday following the festival.

 

All festival parking would be on-site, and no off-site parking would be allowed. A condition has been offered to restrict parking to on-site (Condition 8) in order to avoid unsafe traffic conditions on Route 250. Three separate parking areas have been identified on the concept plan (Attachment B), as well as a handicapped parking area. The available space on the site can accommodate up to 224 cars, which equals a maximum of 560 participants according to the calculation of 2.5 participants per one car, as determined in Section 4.12.6 of the Zoning Ordinance.

 

The applicant has contracted for trash removal and recycling, and a total of 10 portable bathrooms would be available for festival participants. The campground bathroom facilities would be closed to the general public and keys would be given to those staying in the campground to access those facilities. The Health Department has no issues with the event, but has stated that the applicant would need to obtain a permit at least 14 days prior to the event, ensuring that the vendors are licensed and the number of portable toilets is adequate.

 

Staff held a meeting with the police department and fire and rescue to discuss safety issues related to the music festival. As in the past, the police would be notified of the event and encouraged to drive through the park during the event. The applicant would have 12 private security staff members on site to assist with parking and regulate the gates and entrance. An additional 10 private security staff provided by the festival organization would be stationed in the festival area. Camping outside the designated camping areas would not be allowed, and this rule would be enforced through signage in the parking areas and private security personnel monitoring the venue. Emergency exits for Fire and Rescue have been identified on the concept plan, and the Fire and Rescue Division has issued a fire inspection report approving the proposed layout of the emergency ingress and egress (Attachment C).

 

Staff has offered a condition to limit the validity of the special use permit to allow a trial period consisting of two events (one in 2009 and one in 2010) in order to monitor impacts of the music festival, and to ensure that no unforeseen impacts arise that would jeopardize the health, safety, and welfare of the general public (Condition 17). The time limit for the special use permit would also allow the opportunity for Albemarle County to recommend additional conditions, if the applicant should chose to extend the special use permit, should unforeseen issues regarding the music festival arise during the trial period.

 

Planning and Zoning History:

·In 1969, Conditional Use Permit 116 was approved by the Board of Supervisors to allow a campground on the site (see Attachment D).

·In 1982, SP-82-61 was approved to expand the number of camping sites allowed on the parcel to 112 (see Attachment E).

·In 1994, SP-94-30 was approved to construct ten tourist cabins (see Attachment F).

 

Conformity with the Comprehensive Plan: The land uses supported by the Rural Areas chapter of the Comprehensive Plan include agriculture, forestry, and conservation. The proposed special event does not directly contribute to these land uses, but also does not negatively impact these land uses. The proposal is temporary in nature and will occur over a very limited timeframe. The activity would occur on an existing developed site (campground) and there are no permanent improvements proposed to the site to accommodate the event. The agricultural activities and properties under conservation easement located nearby and the adjacent Agricultural/Forestal District would not be significantly impacted by the activity as proposed and with the conditions recommended by staff. In summary, the scale and duration of this proposal is such that it is not detrimental to the important elements that define Rural Area (agricultural/forestal resources; land preservation/conservation; water supply resource; natural/scenic/historic/cultural resources). There are no provisions in the Comprehensive Plan regarding areas of assembly or number of people assembling in the Rural Area.

 

Staff Comment:

Staff will address each provision of Section 31.6 of the Zoning Ordinance as follows:

 

31.6: Special Use Permits provided for in this ordinance may be issued upon a finding by the Board of Supervisors that such use will not be of substantial detriment to adjacent property,

Staff does not anticipate any detrimental impacts to adjacent property. The music area is completely buffered by a dense forest to the south. The nearest residences are located north and east of the music area, the closest of which is 700 feet away and the farthest of which is 1200 feet away (see Attachment G). Other residences to the west are located approximately one-half mile from the site.

 

The Virginia Department of Transportation has determined that the proposed use would not have a detrimental impact on traffic in the area because: 1) the special event is proposed only once per year, and 2) since the existing traffic on Route 250 in this location is only approximately 8000 vehicles per day, the addition of up to 224 more vehicles arriving and leaving on the days of the operation would constitute only a 3% increase in the number of cars on the road per day.

 

that the character of the district will not be changed thereby and

There will be no site development changes or permanent new construction on the property; therefore, the use would have no long-term impact on the character of the district. The one stage proposed to be assembled outdoors for the event would be temporary and removed the day following the music festival. The ARB staff has also determined that since no permanent structures are associated with the proposed use, there would be no permanent impacts to the Entrance Corridor.

 

that such use will be in harmony with the purpose and intent of this ordinance,

The purpose of the Rural Areas Zoning District is the preservation of agricultural and forestal lands and activities; water supply protection; limited service delivery to the rural areas; and conservation of natural, scenic, and historic resources. The proposed use does not directly promote the purposes of the Rural Areas Zoning District; however, special events are allowed by special use permit in the Rural Areas. Given that the requested use would be a temporary event, it is not discordant with the goals and intent of the Rural Areas Zoning and would have no permanent or detrimental impact on the district. The proposed special event also would have no adverse impact on the water supply in the area since portable toilets are being used for the event.

 

with uses permitted by right in the district,

The subject property and the surrounding adjacent properties are zoned Rural Areas.  The uses permitted by right under RA zoning directly support agriculture, forestry, and conservation of rural land.  The special event would not adversely affect the permitted by right uses in the Rural Area zoning district.

 

with the additional regulations provided in section 5.0 of this ordinance,

The additional regulations provided in section 5.0 of the Zoning Ordinance address zoning compliance and special event structures and operations.

 

Staff will address each provision of Section 5.1.43 of the Zoning Ordinance as follows:

 

Each special event authorized by section 10.2.2(50) shall be subject to the following:

a.         Eligibility and applicability. Special events may be authorized on those parcels in the Rural Areas (RA) zoning district on which there is an existing and ongoing by-right (section 10.2.1) primary use. A special event special use permit issued under section 10.2.2(50) and this section shall not be required for special events associated with farm wineries or historical centers, or for events determined by the zoning administrator to be accessory to a primary use of the parcel.

 

The proposed special event does require a special use permit, as determined by the zoning administrator.

 

b.         Information to be submitted with application for special use permit. In addition to any information otherwise required to be submitted for a special use permit, each application for a special use permit shall include the following:

1.         Concept plan. A preliminary schematic plan (the “concept plan”) satisfying section 32.6. The concept plan shall identify the structure(s) to be used for the special event, include the area of the structure(s) in which the proposed special events will be conducted, the parking area, and the entrance to the site from the street. The concept plan shall address, in particular, provisions for safe and convenient access to and from the street, the location of the parking area, the location of portable toilets if they may be required, proposed screening as required by this section for parking areas and portable toilets, and information regarding the exterior appearance of the proposed site. Based on the concept plan and other information submitted, the board of supervisors may then waive the requirement for a site plan in a particular case, upon a finding that the requirement of a site plan would not forward the purposes of this chapter or otherwise serve the public interest.

 

A concept plan identifying the proposed stages, parking areas, entrance, and portable toilets has been submitted (Attachment B). Images showing the exterior appearance of the site have also been submitted (Attachment H & I). The zoning administrator has suggested that a site plan requirement be waived.

 

 

2.         Information from the Virginia Department of Health. The applicant shall submit written comments from the Virginia Department of Health regarding the private water supply and the septic disposal system that will serve the proposed special event site, the ability of the water supply and the septic disposal system to handle the proposed events, and the need to improve the supply or the system in order to handle the proposed events.

 

The use of permanent bathroom facilities on the site would be restricted to campers at the Misty Mountain Camp Resort. Ten portable toilets would be available on-site for the festival participants. The Health Department has no objection to the proposed event, but has stated that the applicant would need to obtain a permit at least 14 days prior to the event ensuring that the vendors are licensed and the number of portable toilets is adequate.

 

3.         Building and fire safety. The building official and the county department of fire and rescue shall review and comment on the application, identifying all Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code and Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code issues and requirements.

 

Building Inspections has no objection to the application. The Fire and Rescue Division has issued a fire inspection report approving the site for the proposed use (Attachment C).

 

c.         Zoning compliance clearance. The applicant shall obtain a zoning compliance clearance prior to conducting a special event. A single zoning clearance may be obtained for one (1) or more such special events in a calendar year as follows:

1.         The zoning administrator may issue a single zoning compliance clearance for more than one (1) special event if: (i) the application submitted by the applicant includes the required information in subsection 5.1.43(c)(3) for each special event to be covered by the zoning compliance clearance: (ii) the zoning administrator determines that each special event is substantially similar in nature and size; and (iii) the zoning administrator determines that a single set of conditions that would apply to each such special event may be imposed with the zoning compliance clearance.

2.         The applicant shall apply for a zoning compliance clearance at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of the first special event to be authorized by the zoning compliance clearance. The application shall be submitted to the zoning administrator, who shall forward copies of the application to the county police department, the county building official, the county department of fire and rescue, and the local office of the Virginia Department of Health. As part of his review, the building official shall determine whether the structure(s) proposed to be used for the special events satisfies the requirements of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code for that use.

3.         The application shall describe the nature of each special event to be authorized by the zoning compliance clearance, the date or dates and hours of operation of each such special event, the facilities, structures to be used, and the number of participants and support staff expect to attend each special event.

4.         Upon a determination that all requirements of the zoning ordinance and all conditions of the special use permit are satisfied, and imposing all conditions of such approval required by the offices identified in subsection 5.1.43(c)(2), the zoning administrator shall issue a zoning compliance clearance for one or more special events. The validity of the zoning compliance clearance shall be conditional upon the applicant’s compliance with all requirements of the zoning ordinance, all conditions of the approved special use permit, the approved concept plan or site plan, and all conditions imposed by the zoning compliance clearance.

 

The applicant would be required to obtain a Zoning Clearance prior to the event, if the special use permit is approved. A condition has been offered to ensure this procedure is required (Condition 5).

 

d.         Special events sites and structures. In addition to all other applicable requirements of this chapter, special events sites and structures shall be subject to the following:

1.         Structures used for special events. Each structure used for a special event shall satisfy the following: (i) the structure shall have been in existence on the date of adoption of this section 5.1.43, provided that this requirement shall not apply to accessory structures less than one hundred fifty (150) square feet in size; (ii) the structure shall be a lawful conforming structure and shall support or have supported a lawful use of the property; and (iii) modifications to farm buildings or farm structures as those terms are defined in Virginia Code § 36-97 shall allow the structure to revert to an agricultural use, as determined by the building official.

 

There are no permanent structures proposed for the special event.

 

2.         Minimum yards. Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the minimum front yard shall be seventy-five (75) feet. The minimum side yard shall be twenty-five feet (25) feet. The minimum rear yard shall be thirty-five (35) feet. All yards shall be measured from structures and off-street parking areas. These minimum yard requirements shall apply to all accessory structures established after the effective date of this section 5.1.43 and all tents, parking areas and portable toilets used in whole or in part to serve special events.

 

The minimum yard requirements for the portable toilets would be met according to the concept plan dated March 25, 2009.

 

3.         Parking. The number of off-street parking spaces for a special event shall be as required in section 4.12.6. Notwithstanding section 4.12.15(a) through (g), the additional parking area(s) for special events shall consist of or be constructed of pervious materials including, but not limited to stabilized turf, approved by the county engineer. Asphalt and impervious materials are prohibited. If the parking area is on grass or in a field, the applicant shall reseed and restore the parking area site as required by the zoning administrator. In addition to the requirements of section 4.12.5, the parking area shall be onsite and screened from abutting parcels by topography, structures or new or existing landscaping. Notwithstanding section 4.12.16(d) and (e), the delineation of parking spaces and the provision of bumper blocks shall not be required.

 

Only on-site parking in grassy areas is proposed for the special event, and the applicant would be required to reseed and restore the parking area site as required by the Zoning Ordinance. The locations of the three proposed parking areas would be obscured from abutting parcels by the topography of the site and existing landscaping.

 

4.         Water and sewer. The private water supply and septic disposal system serving a special event shall be approved by the Virginia Department of Health.

 

There would be no impact on the private water supply or septic disposal system since portable toilets and bottled water would be used for the special event.

 

5.         Streets and access. Streets serving the site shall be adequate for anticipated traffic volume for a special event. Access from the street onto the site shall be adequate to provide safe and convenient access to the site, and applicant shall install all required improvements and provide adequate sight distance in order to provide safe and convenient access.

 

The Virginia Department of Transportation has determined that the street and entrance drive are adequate for the proposed special event.

 

e.         Special events operations. In addition to all other applicable requirements of this chapter, special events operations shall be subject to the following:

1.         Number of participants. The number of participants at a special event at any one time shall not exceed one hundred fifty (150) persons.

 

The applicant is requesting that up to 500 participants of the music festival be allowed on the site each day, and hence, is requesting a waiver for this supplementary regulation. Currently, approximately 600 people are allowed on site under the auspices of the special use permit for the campground. Staff recommended that no more than 500 additional people be allowed on the site for the music festival (for a total of 1100 people allowed on the site for both the music festival and campground) to ensure the safety and manageability of campers and festival participants.

 

2.         Number of special events per year. The special use permit shall identify the number of approved special events per calendar year, which number shall not exceed twenty-four (24).

 

The current special use permit application is for only one three-day special event per year.

 

3.         Signs. Permanent and temporary signs advertising a special event shall be permitted as provided in sections 4.15.4 and 4.15.8.

 

No additional signage advertising the special event would be posted on the site.

 

4.         Food service. No kitchen facility permitted by the Virginia Department of Health as a commercial kitchen shall be allowed on the site. A kitchen may be used by licensed caterers for the handling, warming and distribution of food, but not for cooking food, to be served at a special event.

 

The food vendors would distribute food at the special event, but they would not utilize a kitchen facility on the site. The Health Department has determined that the applicant would need to obtain a permit at least 14 days prior to the event ensuring that the vendors are licensed.

 

 

5.         Portable toilets. If required, portable toilets are permitted on the site, provided that they comply with the yard requirements in section 5.1.43(d)(2) and shall be screened from that parcel and any street by topography, structures or new or existing landscaping.

 

The portable toilets would be screened from any street view by the topography of the site and existing landscaping.

 

f.          Prohibition of development to a more intensive use. A parcel subject to a special events special use permit shall not be subdivided so as to create one or more parcels, including the parent parcel, of less than twenty-one acres in size without first amending the special use permit to expressly authorize the subdivision. If a parcel is so subdivided without first amending the special use permit, special events shall thereafter be prohibited on the resulting parcels unless a new special use permit is obtained.

 

               The applicant has not proposed to subdivide the property.

 

and with the public health, safety and general welfare.

The public health, safety, and general welfare of the community are protected through the special use permit process which assures that the proposed uses are appropriate in the location requested. The Building Official has offered no concerns about the proposal.

 

The Health Department has no objection to the proposed special use permit application, but has stated that the applicant would need to obtain a permit prior to the event to ensure that the food vendors are licensed and the number of portable toilets is adequate. The Fire and Safety Department has conducted and approved a fire safety inspection report for the special event (Attachment C).

 

The Virginia Department of Transportation has no objection to the proposed special use permit. However, the proposed use would generate 224 more vehicles per day on Rockfish Gap Turnpike and, therefore, would have some impact on traffic in this area.

 

 

SUMMARY:

 

Staff has identified the following factors favorable to this application:

1.                  The proposed use would minimally impact the character of the site, given that the festival is a temporary special event and no permanent structures or improvements would be constructed.

2.                  There are no anticipated detrimental impacts on adjacent property resulting from the proposed use.

 

Staff has identified the following factors unfavorable to this application:

1.                  The use does not directly contribute to the goals outlined in the Rural Areas section of the Comprehensive Plan.

2.                  The use would increase traffic in the area during the three days of the festival.
