  • The applicant is requesting 208 semi-detached residential units on 104 lots.
  • The applicant is processing a comprehensive plan map amendment (PA-13-02) changing the future land use on one of the two parcels, from IL to RES-6. The map amendment is scheduled for adoption on August 8, 2013 – concurrent with this PDR request. This proposed rezone will not be effective until the map amendment is effective.
  • The entire site, located on the north side of Tallevast Road, is vacant and used as grazing land.
