A. Code Amendment Relative to Resource Protection Area Designations for Family Subdivisions (21PJ0110)
An ordinance to amend the Code of the County of Chesterfield, 1997, as amended, by amending and reenacting
Section 17-56 of the subdivision ordinance and Section 19.1-523 of the zoning ordinance relating to Resource Protection Area
(“RPA”) designations for family subdivisions. An RPA is a vegetated buffer established along streams and water bodies to enhance
water quality. For a single real property division where the newly created parcel is conveyed to a family member, the amendments
would, among other things, allow a RPA determination for the parent parcel to be deferred from the time of plat review until
the time of building permit or further land division. A notice advising of this action would also need to be recorded on the plat.
B. Code Amendment Relative to Route 1 Residential Overlay Area Boundary (21PJ0112)
An ordinance to amend the Code of the County of Chesterfield, 1997, as amended, by amending and reenacting
Section 19.1-53 of the zoning ordinance relating to the to the Route 1 Residential Overlay Area. The residential overlay permits
certain commercial properties fronting Jefferson Davis Highway to include multiple-family or townhouse unit development. The
amendment would adjust the current southern boundary of the overlay from north of Osborne Road to north of Route 288,
and the amendment would provide that properties meeting current provisions which are located between Osborne Road and
Route 288 to be eligible for development under the overlay provisions provided a valid site plan applied for prior to the amendment
adoption has been filed and maintained.
C. Midlothian Special Design District (MSDD) and Parking for Certain Office and Commercial Uses Countywide (20PJ0121).
