The Gloucester Planning Commission met last Thursday night in the colonial courthouse to discuss the county-sponsored Glenns rezoning case; the planners voted unanimously to recommend approval.
Twenty-four parcels, totaling 152.69 acres, were proposed to be rezoned from Rural Business (B-4) (16 parcels) and Rural Countryside (RC-1) (seven parcels), as well as one split zoned property (B-4 and RC-1) to Business (B-1) in part or in whole.
The purpose of this rezoning is to align the zoning at and near the intersection of George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17) and Lewis B. Puller Memorial Highway (Route 33)/Glenns Road (Route 198) with other characteristics of this intersection and the surrounding area. Surrounding land uses include business, residential, timberland and vacant.
Chris Hutson, the supervisors’ liaison, asked McNash if any of the landowners had expressed negative feedback to the proposed rezoning.
“Not since we’ve contacted them again,” said McNash.
