Board of Supervisors recommends adjusting growth area boundary for NGIC

Reader comments (0)

The Albemarle County Planning Commission will receive a resolution from the Board of Supervisors to modify the 29 North growth area boundary to facilitate the expansion of the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC).  At their May 3, 2006 meeting, the Supervisors voted 5-1 in favor of the boundary adjustment that would pull thirty acres into the growth area and remove about eighty acres from the Pantops Development Area (owned by another property owner).  The NGIC expansion would take place on a part of the thirty acres which the federal government would purchase from developer Wendell Wood.  NGIC expects to bring 800-1000 new jobs to the County.  The Planning Commission will take this matter up as part of the Places29 Master Plan in 2006-07.
