On Tuesday, October 25, 2016, the Walkersville Planning Commission will review final plans from Verdant Development Group for their planned Parkside development on Biggs Ford Road.
The former farm between Glade Creek and Kenneth Drive has been left fallow while the development plans were made. The barn, silo, and fencing were razed to leave only the old farm house, which the developer proposes will be updated and remain part of their new community.
The development consists of twenty-four lots varying in size from about 22,000 square feet to just over 32,000 square feet. The lot designated as “Lot 17” features the existing home which will be renovated and updated by the builders.
On top of the common and forest areas required by law, the developer will be dedicating 2.060 acres to the Town of Walkersville to increase the size of Walkersville Community Park.
The Planning Commission and public will be able to ask questions and make comments during the Planning Commission meeting before the Planning Commission makes a decision on the plans presented. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Walkersville Town Hall.
