Afton / Avon
Nelson County, Virginia
A plan is in the works to rezone to the old Anderson’s Store property in Avon from Residential (R-1) to Business (B-1). Over the course of the past few months various applications and site plans have been submitted to the county and have been reviewed by VDOT. The 28 page packet prepared for presentation to the Nelson County Planning Commission doesn’t say what the proposed retail location might be. However, an email from a VDOT official included in the packet makes reference to a “potential “Dollar General”.”
VDOT has been doing extensive construction work at that intersection for the past several weeks.
Back in April, we told you about a Dollar General that is under construction in Nellysford between Wells Fargo Bank and The University Of Virginia Community Credit Union.
“The applicant has applied to rezone 1.10 acres of land located at 1897 and 1889 Avon Road in Afton from
Residential, R-1 to Business, B-1 Conditional, to permit use of a small area of the existing (non-conforming) building as a real estate office for himself and continued use of the remaining portion as a neighborhood convenience store to be operated by someone else.”
That request was one of several that was denied.
The planning commission meeting on this latest matter was originally scheduled for May 24th at 7 PM in the General District Courtroom in Lovingston. We got word as of Monday morning that it’s been rescheduled to June 28th meeting. We will update any additional info as soon as we know.
