Topic:  6th ADDITION TO THE COBBLER MOUNTAIN AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTAL DISTRICT

This is a request by Patricia Barraza Vos to add approximately 50 acres to the Cobbler Mountain Agricultural and Forestal District that will expire on March 6, 2006. 

The application was received after the Planning Commission’s April 25, 2002 meeting.  The Code of Virginia states that any owner of additional qualifying land may join the application within thirty days from the date the notice is published, or with consent of the local governing body before the Board of Supervisors public hearing. 

Additional background is provided in the attached staff report.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Hold a public hearing and take action as deemed appropriate.  Should the Board move to approve this request, a proposed Ordinance is attached.

 

Financial Impacts Analysis:

This property is currently in land use taxation.
