Housing development proposed for Glenmore area again denied recommendation | Local Government

At a board meeting in October, Supervisor Donna Price, who represents the Scottsville District, asked the board to send the project back to the Planning Commission for a recommendation before it comes back before the board, which supervisors supported.

In addition to the decrease in density from two gross units per acre and 2.5 net units per acre to 1.6 gross units per acre and 1.9 net units per acre, the design and alignment of one of the main roads has been reconfigured to discourage traffic from entering and exiting Breezy Hill on Running Deer Drive.

More than 230 community members, nearly all against the proposed development, have reached out to commissioners and staff via email with concerns about the proposal. Many of the concerns were around language in the area’s Master Plan that says “it is essential that all of the U.S. 250 improvements be constructed before new development

The Obama-Biden administration was a charmed era for America’s tech companies — a moment when they were lionized as innovators, hailed as job creators and largely left alone.

Now Joe Biden is coming back, this time as president. But times have changed. The halcyon days of an adoring Washington are unlikely to return when Biden takes the oath of office in January, with mounting legislative and regulatory challenges to the industry — including stronger enforcement of antitrust laws — nearly certain to outlast the tenure

  • You can stop Google from tracking your computer by going to your Google Account page and turning off Web & App Activity and Location Services.

Trinity to preserve heritage gas station as part of Westboro development

A major developer is proposing a nine-storey mixed-use building at a prominent Westboro heritage site, saying it plans to preserve the shuttered 1930s-era gas station currently on the property and incorporate it into the new development’s design.

Trinity Development Group first floated the idea of redeveloping 70 Richmond Rd. at the corner of Island Park Drive early last year. The builder ultimately presented three options for the “cottage-style” service station property, two of which called for the building to be demolished.

But after consulting with the community and heritage consultants, Trinity opted to keep the former Champlain Oil filling station as part of the proposal. Constructed in 1934, the building was granted heritage protection by the city in 2015. Had it wanted to tear down the structure, Trinity would have required council to repeal the special designation.

In a development application recently filed with the city, Trinity says it intends
