Agenda: Public Hearing Items

1.         Class III Tower Permit #2013-007 – Mrs. Cheryl Taylor / AT&T

Consideration of a Class III Tower Permit application by Mrs. Cheryl Taylor for the proposed construction of a 130’ monopole with low-profile mounted antennas. The property is identified as Tax Map #6-A-124, an 81-acre property owned by Ms. Adalea Polastro, located in Afton at the end of Sunrise Drive. The applicant has submitted a Request for Exception to Zoning Ordinance Section 20-7-2e. Because the application does not comply with the requirement that no tower shall be located within one (1) air mile of a designated Virginia Scenic Byway, the applicant seeks an exception for 0.29 air miles of distance between the proposed tower site and Rockfish Valley Highway.


2.        Proposed Increases to Dept. of Planning & Zoning Fee Schedule

Consideration of proposed increases to the Dept. of Planning & Zoning fee schedule for various applications, as directed by the Nelson County Board of Supervisors at their May 14th, 2013 regular meeting, in accordance with the provisions of the Code of Virginia §15.2-2286, as follows: from $45 to $200 for a Special Use Permit; from $25 to $300 for Rezoning; from $25 to $150 for a Variance; and from $25 to $150 for an Appeal.
