Fluvanna Reconsiders Land Use section of Comprehensive Plan

 
Fluvanna County is contemplating changes to the land use section of the Comprehensive Plan. The consultant hired by Fluvanna is recommending significant changes to the subdivision ordinance as it relates to large scale subdivisions. Other amendments to the Comprehensive Plan would include adoption of some new urbanist principles such as connectivity of roads, pedestrian orientation and mix of uses as required by the Commonwealth in “high growth areas”. The requirement also demands that Fluvanna establish urban development areas where they will concentrate infrastructure.The Fluvanna Friends of Rural Preservation favor restricting all by right subdivisions in the county by requiring mandatory review. The group is recommending amendments to the Comprehensive Plan that would support their initiatives to amend the zoning and subdivision ordinances. Changes to the Comprehensive Plan that would outline implementation strategies are also sought. Fluvanna Friends of Rural Preservation also support establishing a proffer policy. Fluvanna County has been undergoing tremendous growth with a thirty percent cumulative increase in population last seven years.
