Greene County’s Board of Supervisors took up a request to change to zoning of more than 70 acres of land.
Right now it's zoned for agriculture. That distinction that allows for uses like farming and also limited residential use.
Supervisors voted to change the zoning of the more than 70 acres near the intersection of Route 29 and Route 33 to Business Highway and High Intensity. That clears the way for businesses like Wal-Mart that require frequent public access.
This isn’t the only Wal-Mart store planned for our area. The company is also planning to build a store on Route 208 in Louisa.
