Supervisors approve Terra Products

Following public hearings on both cases last week, the King George Board of Supervisors unanimously approved cases that will allow Terra Products LLC to establish its concrete product business in a vacant industrial building in Dogue, and for the keeping of horses as pets in some subdivisions with specific conditions. The actions were taken at the meeting on May 21.

SAND & GRAVEL PROCESSING
Terra Products LLC received approval for a rezoning and a special exception permit to operate a business for sand & gravel processing inside a vacant building near Dogue currently owned by Steve DeBernard.

The industrial property is adjacent to 700+ acres of existing Industrial zoning where sand and gravel mining and processing is taking place. The 25.641 acre property at Cleve Drive (Route 692) is served by an existing private waste water treatment facility and private well.

Terra Products will now begin actions to establish its concrete product business and plans to invest $6 million to produce aggregate products with projected annual sales of $40 million.

It will purchase the property zoned Industrial (I) from DeBernard which contains existing buildings totaling 100,000 square feet, formerly occupied by White Packing, that have been vacant for over a decade. The company will employ 40-60 people, in addition to a staff of 12 sales people, with annual payroll projected at over $2,000,000.

Prior to commencement of activity, site plan approval is needed along with all building permits and any other state, local, and or federal permits as required.

HORSES IN A-2 SUBDIVISIONS
The keeping of a horse as a pet on a 10-acre or larger lot is now allowed in major subdivisions within the Rural Agricultural (A-2) and General Agricultural (A-3) zoning districts.  

To comply, residents in those zoning districts would also need to have a minimum of two acres of usable pasture area on which the horse would be kept.

Additional horses can be kept at a ratio of one horse for each additional two acres of useable pasture area, up to a maximum of ten horses, but the horses must belong to the landowner, with boarding of horses prohibited, whether for commercial purposes or not.

A stable is required to be provided for housing the horse(s), with set-back minimums of 75 feet from any side and/or rear property line. All pastures, runs, or similar areas used for horse keeping must be surrounded by secure fencing.

Two members of the public spoke during the public hearing, with both in favor of the proposal. They were Amy Reese and Sue Williams.

Reese had originally requested consideration of the change over a year ago and has persisted in urging county officials to make the change.
