The Cape Charles Town Council approved an application by Cherrystone Investments, LLC to rezone Tax Map #90- A-1A6 from a split-zoned parcel of Harbor (H) & General Business/Light Industrial (GBI-H1) to only Harbor (H).
According to the application, no specific use of the property beyond a live-work business has been proffered. Town staff has noted that, in a conversation, the applicant is considering a golf cart path from the Bay Creek properties that would connect with Bay Shore Road.
Town Council passed a Resolution of Intent in September.
East of the parcel are two parcels owned by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) that have been locked into a permanent conservation easement. Staff has noted that “these two parcels since the zoning is relatively irrelevant to DCR’s use and management of the property are in accordance with the conservation easement. At some point in the near future, the Town may wish to put forth its own zoning map amendment for the 2 DCR parcels (one parcel is GBI-H-1 and one is Harbor) to Open Space”.
