In 2004, the County approved the creation of a 5.5308-acre
lot as a family transfer. This lot is located off a private
easement that connects to Tenerife Road (Route 767) in the
Cedar Run Magisterial District (PIN # 7932-40-6552-000). The
attached vicinity map shows the location of this parcel. The
lot was conveyed to Rosalind P. Turner by her son, Ronald L.
Harding, and the conveyance included the affidavit requiring
that the grantee not transfer the property to a
non-immediate family member for ten (10) years. The property
was later conveyed to Ronald L. Harding by his mother,
Rosalind P. Turner.
Mr. Harding is now requesting that the Board of Supervisors
reduce the 10-year time requirement of Section 2-39.3.A.3 of
the Subdivision Ordinance, so that he will not have to hold
the property for ten (10) years before voluntarily
transferring the property. Section 2-39.3A.14 of the
Subdivision Ordinance states that, if the Board of
Supervisors finds that an extraordinary hardship is caused
by the ten (10) year restriction, it may reduce the time
period to alleviate the hardship. If approved, Mr. Harding
would have held the property for almost four (4) years.
The Applicant has encountered financial hardship and has had
to take on the responsibility of the parcel since his
mother’s illness. Mr. Harding can no longer sustain the
financial impacts and needs to sell the property in order to
alleviate that hardship. Mr. Harding’s letter requesting the
reduction, along with the specific justification, and
additional financial documents outlining his situation in
more detail, are available for review under separate cover
and these personal financial documents are exempt from
release under Virginia Code Section 2.2-3705.A.2, 4 and 5.
