Over the next 20 years, Stafford may see 29,000 more homes and apartments. But the question is, where should they go?
County officials are in the process of reevaluating the Urban Development Areas, seven mixed use developments where growth was anticipated but are no longer required by the state. Instead, the Planning Commission is looking at less stringent “targeted growth ares.”
And for another few days, you can share your thoughts on where those are.
A survey will be online through 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, and the Planning Commission will discuss county growth, among other issues, at its June 1 retreat.
The survey includes more background information, maps and questions on how commercial and residential development should be distributed.
Questions can be directed to Michael Zuraf or John Harbin at 540/658-8668.Tweet
