Main Street, Madison, Virginia on Wednesday, August 4th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. to act on the following cases: Case No. RZ-08-21-06: Madison Land Holdings, LLC (Mr. Powell O'Bannon) have submitted an application to rezone a six (6) acre portion of a thirty-nine and one-tenth (39.1) acre parcel from R1 (limited residential) to M1 (limited industrial) with conditions. The applicant has submitted a proffer letter limiting the M1 zoned area exclusively to a "storage facility" (aka, mini-storage units) use. A conceptual Site Plan has been submitted with the application showing seven (7) mini-storage structures; two (2) structures measure 65'x 200' and five (5) structures measure 65' x 150'. If approved, an official Site Plan submittal would be required to be reviewed by the Planning Commission, and approved by the Board of Supervisors. The subject parcel, located on Fishback Road (Rt. 772), to-date does not have a postal address. The parcel is identified on Madison County's Tax Maps as 40-20. Case No. OA-08-21-07: Amending the zoning ordinance, specifically deleting/amending portions of article 14 (general provisions), 14-1-1, 14-1-2, 14-1-3, 14-1-4, 14-1-5, 14-2 and 14-2A. If approved, the result of the proposed amendments would be eliminating the requirement that a water source (i.e. a drilled well) be installed/completed prior to the issuance of a building permit. Case No. OA-08-21-08: Amending the zoning ordinance, specifically deleting article 12-1-2 (types of signs), number 11 (political signs). If approved, regulations/restrictions for political signs would be removed from the zoning ordinance. Case No. OA-08-21-09: Amending the zoning ordinance, specifically article 14-4 (standards for issuance of special use permits) and 14-4-2. If approved, these amendments would clarify conditional approvals of special use permits by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors. The public is invited to attend the hearing and comment. Written comments may be submitted prior to the meeting; written comments received prior to 1 p.m. on Friday, July 30th will be placed into the official staff packet and distributed to the Planning Commission, Board of Supervisor and the public prior to the meeting.
