MOUNT STERLING,  MONTEBELLO FARMS, AND UPTOWN HOTEL


Currently there are three applications for rezoning submitted to the County that will impact Connemara Woods. THESE PROPOSALS HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS AND ARE CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW BY VARIOUS COUNTY DEPARTMENTS AND ORGANIZATIONS.


1) Mount Sterling.  Mount Sterling will consist of a total of 316 units consisting of 144 market rate multifamily units, 98 multi-family age restricted Affordable Dwelling Units (ADU), and 74 market rate single family townhomes located adjacent to Cascades Overlook.  Michael Capretti, the spokesperson for Mount Sterling, made a presentation to the County Planning Commission July 24th. There were several issues that needed work so the Commission voted to send the application on to a work session with Planning Commission staff. The proposal can be viewed here.

UPDATE  2 ) Montebello Farms by Pulte Homes. The proposal is for an age restricted (55 and up) housing community consisting of a mix of 406 townhouses, condos, and detached single family homes located in the area adjacent to Connemara Drive and Tramore Court.
