Albemarle Votes Against Biscuit Run Development


March 28, 2007

The Albemarle planning commission voted against the Biscuit Run development proposal Tuesday night.

At a public hearing the commission voted 7-1 to deny the controversial plan. They expressed concerns over the developer's ability to respond to impacts that the 3,100 home development would have on the area.

About 75 people came to the hearing saying that the plan was moving too fast.

"The citizens are telling the planning commission and the board of supervisors to slow down the process, study the situation, and carefully plan for our future" said John Crookshank, Piedmont Sierra Club.

The vote is just a recommendation denial though, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors still need to look at the plan and make a final decision to go forward with the plan or throw it out.
