Spotsy County Reviews Next Five County High-Growth Areas

Spotsylvania County supervisors and planning commissioners got their first look last night at five areas where county staff proposes high-density, mixed-use development.

And almost immediately, they expressed concerns that these ultra-dense communities will spur more residential growth if zoning is not adjusted in other parts of the county.

The General Assembly mandated that high-growth localities like Spotsylvania create Urban Development Areas by July 1, 2011.

The UDAs are to accommodate growth for at least 10 years and for as long as 20 years.

For Spotsylvania, that means homes for at least an additional 28,000 people.
