At its February meeting, the Colonial Beach Planning Commission, under the direction of Vice Chairman Maureen Holt, reviewed an annual report prepared by Gary Mitchell, Director of Planning and Zoning. Chairman Cynthia Misicka and member David Coombes were absent.
According to the annual report, in 2010 the commission approved one conditional use permit, four zoning text amendments, five right-of-way vacations, and one amendment to the Capital Improvement Plan that entailed a complete re-write of the Colonial Beach subdivision regulations, which is in the final stage of approval.
As the commission looks forward to 2011/2012, according to Mitchell, upcoming issues will include Capital Improvement Plan updates and updates to the Comprehensive Plan, including more user-friendly zoning ordinances and final adoption of Phase III Chesapeake Bay Act requirements.
The only new business under discussion was that members had noticed the Day’s Inn in Colonial Beach had lost its franchise and that the hotel was operational, but had taken the signage down.
The Planning Commission meets the first Thursday of every month at 4:30 p.m. at town center.
