Please join a virtual open house on Thursday, Sept. 1 at noon to learn more about the recommendations of the Courthouse West Special General Land Use Plan (GLUP) Study.

At their September meetings, the Planning Commission and County Board will consider whether the Board should adopt principles and recommendations to guide future development in the study area, which is bounded by Wilson Boulevard, N. Cleveland Street, Clarendon Boulevard, and N. Danville Street.

The study recommends a GLUP designation of “Medium” Office-Apartment-Hotel, with building heights up to 12 stories near the center of the study area and four to six stories at the edges. In July, the County Board authorized advertisement of future public hearings on this GLUP amendment and expanded the scope of the advertisement to allow consideration of building heights up to 16 stories.

During tomorrow's virtual session, County planning staff will share information on the study and be available to answer questions.

Visit the study webpage for additional information.

We hope you are able to join the meetings!
