Public Hearings at June 3, 2019 City Council Meeting on Two Zoning Text Amendments
Mill Branch Crossing
The property owner of the undeveloped Mill Branch Crossing development is requesting City Council support for a proposed Zoning Ordinance text amendment to permit multi-family development in the Commercial Shopping Center (C-S-C) Zone. Mill Branch Crossing was previously planned to include a Walmart superstore. A recent trend in the commercial real estate industry is moving away from big box retail toward mixed use with residential to support commercial uses. The site is approved for mix of office/retail and a hotel. The 74-acre site is located on the east side of US 301, in the northeast quadrant of the US 301/Excalibur Road/Mill Branch Road intersection.
The property owner is requesting the City’s support for a proposed Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment for the R-A (Residential Agriculture) zone, to support a future residential redevelopment plan of approximately 600 dwelling units, including small lot single-family dwelling units and townhouse units. The property includes 129 acres and is located in the southwest quadrant of US 50/Church Road.
The hearings will take place on Monday, June 3 at 8 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. For additional information, call the Planning Department at 301-809-3037.
