Essex County Planning Commission Vote On Rezoning Request

September 13, 2023 by News Staff

The Essex County Planning Commission this month voted 5-2 to recommend denial of a rezoning request that would create a mixed-use development along U.S. Route 360 in Bray’s Fork, according to the Rappahannock Times. Voting to suggest denial were Commission Chairman David Jones and member B. Scott Mundie, Trent Taliaferro, Stephen Walters, and Wright Andrews. Voting against the denial recommendation were Commission Vice Chairman Angelo Stevens Jr. and member Jean Segar.

An earlier motion to approve the request with certain variances followed the same voting pattern. Stevens and Segar supported that vote, while Jones, Mundie, Taliaferro, Walters and Andrews cast dissenting votes. The matter will now go before the county’s Board of Supervisors for a final vote.
