A Resolution Directing the County Administrator to Schedule a Public Hearing on the Proposed Rezoning of Four Acres of Land Currently Owned by Jeffrey D. and Mary E. Lippincott, More Particularly Described as PIN #7916-10-1466, from Residential-1 (R-1) to Commercial (C-1)


Topic Description:

The United States Postal Service previously contracted with landowners Jeffrey and Mary Lippincott to purchase a four acre parcel of land at the southwest corner of Broad Run Church Road and Riley Road for the purpose of erecting a post office for the New Baltimore Service District.  The landowners instituted a requested rezoning from the Residential-1 (R-1) zoning category to Commerical-1 (C-1).  After a public hearing before the Board of Supervisors, the matter was tabled as a result of the Post Office’s determination that it would not proceed with construction of the New Baltimore branch pending a review of Post Office facility plans. 


By letter of July 1, 2005, the United States Postal Service informed the Board of Supervisors that it has restarted the project to acquire the four acre tract from Jeffrey and Mary Lippincott for a new post office.  As a result, it has been requested that the Board reactivate the Lippincott rezoning request.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
