The King George Planning Commission next Tuesday will hear details of requested projects for a proposed five-year $38 million Capital Improvements Program (CIP) and take comment from members of the public on the proposed projects.
The public hearing on the 2010-2011 to 2014-2015 CIP is slated for Feb. 9. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the boardroom of the Revercomb Building, located on Route 3 behind the King George County Courthouse.
Along with receipt of the project requests, planning commissioners received a transmittal letter from Deputy County Administrator/Finance Director Donita Harper.
Harper noted in her letter that she anticipates only about $250,000 being available to cash-fund CIP projects for the first year of the five-year plan next year in 2010-11.
In the previous few years, the county had expected to have between $750,000 and $1 million for cash-funding projects. For the current year the county ended up with less than $400,000 available in cash, due to the economic climate resulting in lower revenues than originally anticipated.
Harper noted that she would be present at next week’s hearing to address financial questions regarding project funding, including any queries about plans for continued funding of ongoing projects contained in the five-year CIP proposal.

Final site plan to be reviewed this week by Planning Commission
A Wal-Mart is the anchor store of a site plan of a retail development up for approval this week in King George.
The Planning Commission is slated to review a final site plan for a project called King George Gateway, which indicates an anchor store containing 133,473 square feet.
This week’s review and approval is slated for Tuesday, August 11, after The Journal goes to press with this issue.
The applicant is listed as OMZ King George LLC, represented by Edward Murphy, though tax maps indicate that the bulk of the property appears to currently be owned by Monmouth West Limited Partnership.
The brief staff report, comprised of one page with a cover sheet, does not mention Wal-Mart. No formal announcement has been made by Wal-Mart or the applicant about siting a store in King George.
Nor is Wal-Mart prominently named on the final site plan drawings. But at least two sheets of the 83-sheet plan set refer to Wal-Mart construction details by name.
