At Thursday’s Regular Town Council Meeting, Lance Marine presented a comprehensive overview of the proposed Bay Crossing Workforce Housing project. The presentation included the layout and details
of the conceptual site plan. Currently, the types of units proposed includes:
S1 = Micro/Studio – size of approximately 360 sq. ft
S2 – Micro Studio – size of approximately 365 sq. ft.
A1 = 1 bedroom/1 Bath Unit of approximately 520 sq. ft.
B1 = 2 bedroom/2 bath unit of approximately 700 sq. ft.
B2 = 2 bedroom/2 bath unit of approximately 702 sq. ft.
Bay Crossing will be a Planned Unit Development (PUD) that intends to provide for low-to-moderate density residential development for the local workforce in the Town of Cape Charles and Northampton County.
The targeted income range is 80% to 150% of the Area Median Income ($55,104 for Cape Charles) and no greater than 30% of income to be spent for housing costs (rent and utilities).
Future plans also include commercial development which the Town Council and Planning Commission will control/approve via the existing Conditional Use Permit process. New Commercial developement will not be ‘by right’.
