Chesterfield Board of Supervisors to consider Upper Magnolia project
The Chesterfield Board of Supervisors is scheduled to meet on Thursday. Full agenda here.
On deck is a county-initiated proposal to develop the 2,400-acre Upper Magnolia Green site near Moseley in the western part of the county.
Supervisors are expected to vote on whether to provide final approval for two separate rezoning applications: One which would rezone 1,700 acres to develop a technology park and public facilities, and the other to allow construction of 600 single-family homes and public facilities on 700 acres. The Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of the project in April.
Also on the agenda is a vote on whether to allow a redevelopment of Rockwood Square shopping center with the construction of several hundred residential units.

The rezoning request tied to the project now goes to the Board of Supervisors for its consideration.
