RE:                     Vacation of a portion of a subdivision, pursuant to Virginia Code Section 15.2-2272(2), pertaining to a lot originally reserved for recreation, known as Lot 12-1, Staffordshire, Section 5, Block M (3021 Falcon Road).

 

ORD. OR RES. No.                                          

 

 

PURPOSE:  To vacate of a portion of a subdivision, pursuant to Virginia Code Section 15.2-2272(2), pertaining to a lot originally reserved for recreation, known as Lot 12-1, Staffordshire, Section 5, Block M (3021 Falcon Road).

 

REASON:  The owner of the subject property intends to construct a single-family dwelling consistent with the underlying R-2 Single-Family Residential zoning. In order for the development to take place, the subdivision must be partially vacated by an act of City Council, which is a power enabled by Virginia Code Section 15.2-2272(2).

 

RECOMMENDATION:  In accordance with the requirements of the City Charter and the Zoning Ordinance, the City Planning Commission will review this request and make a recommendation to City Council. This item will be scheduled for consideration by the Commission at its October 4, 2021 meeting.

 

BACKGROUND: The property consists of approximately 1.07 acres of unimproved land located in the Huguenot neighborhood at the end of Falcon Road, off Duryea Drive, adjacent to the city’s border with Chesterfield County. The 1966 subdivision plat indicates the property was reserved for recreational use.

 

The City’s Richmond 300 Master Plan designates these parcels as Residential. Such areas are defined as neighborhoods “…consisting primarily of single-family houses on large- or medium-sized lots more homogeneous in nature.”

 

Primary Uses: Single-family houses, accessory dwelling units, and open space. Secondary Uses: Duplexes and small multi-family buildings (typically 3-10 units), institutional, and cultural. Secondary uses may be found along major streets.

 

Single-family residential land use predominates the area.
