SoBo council has two hearings tonight

SoVaNow.com / December 10, 2012
South Boston Town Council will hold its regularly scheduled monthly meeting this evening beginning at 7 p.m. in Chamber Chambers on Yancey Street.

Council has two public hearings set for the evening, the first being on a request from Mae Reed of College Street to abandon a part of the unopened Prospect Avenue north of College Street. Reed is asking that some 197 feet of the street be abandoned since she needs the land to build a garage for her home located adjacent to the unopened street. Following the hearing Council is expected to appoint a three member Board of Viewers to study the matter and report back to them on any inconvenience the closure might cause town residents.

The second public hearing focuses on a recommendation from the Town’s Planning Commission members to rezone 17 lots in the Poplar Creek Subdivision from R-2 to R-3 medium density residential. The move will allow for smaller lot sizes for homes to be placed on those lots.

The third agenda item is consideration of an amendment to the Town’s 2012-2013 fee and tax listing, setting prices for the columbarium wall and ground niches.

Council will hold no work session in December due to the upcoming holiday schedule.
