Scaled-down plan for nearly 300 homes off Genito Road advances in Chesterfield

A slightly scaled-down plan to add hundreds of homes in Chesterfield’s Moseley area has passed muster with the Planning Commission and is headed to county supervisors for a final decision next month.

At their meeting last week, commissioners recommended approval for Dogwood Creek, a development now planned for up to 293 houses on 178 acres on the south side of Genito Road near its intersection with Bailey Farm Road.

The proposal from Midlothian-based TC Development LLC has been scaled down in density since it was submitted in November. The original plan called for 356 homes with a variety of lot sizes ranging from 50 to 90 feet wide, including some lots accessed by private alleys. The revised plan shows all of the lots under the county’s R-12 zoning, which calls for 90-foot widths and lot areas of 12,000 square feet.

To make room for the larger lots, about three dozen lots and five cul-de-sacs have been added at the site’s southwestern end, where the previous plan had not included homes. The revised plan by engineering firm Balzer & Associates also adjusts the general layout of planned roads, common area and open space.

The plan remains conceptual and subject to variation based on engineering and environmental studies for final subdivision approval, according to a county planning report.

Proffered conditions for Dogwood Creek include a phased development with no more than 75 building permits issuable before 2027, and a maximum of 60 permit per calendar year thereafter. Minimum sizes for the homes would be 1,600 square feet, and a neighborhood pool must be built before the 175th residential permit is issued.

Other planned amenities include a pavilion, pickleball courts, a dog park, community gardens, a playground and walking trails.

The site would be accessed via two roads off Genito, and the plan shows internal connections with a road and trails in Tuckmar, as well as future connections with adjacent, undeveloped parcels. The developer has proffered to widen and add a shared-use path along Genito and add turn lanes at the entrances.

The developer also would pay the county’s cash proffer of $9,400 per home to offset impacts to public infrastructure and services. The proffers could exceed $2.7 million if paid for every home, whereas the original plan had called for proffers to start after 102 of the homes are built for a potential total closer to $2.4 million.

The plans include images of sample homes but do not specify price points or maximum sizes. The wooded land is to the west of Horner Park and adjacent to Tuckmar Farm, a 93-acre subdivision where Main Street Homes is building 215 houses priced in the $600,000 range.

Also in the pipeline along Genito farther east is Lattice Hall, a 307-home development by Manakin-Sabot-based Boone Homes on 155 acres west of Otterdale Road.

The Dogwood Creek site consists of two parcels at 19000 Genito Road and 4000 Bailey Farm Road and is owned by 19000 Genito Road LLC, a Mechanicsville-based entity that acquired the parcels in 2014. The parcels are assessed by the county at $108,000 combined.

TC Development is seeking a rezoning from agricultural use to the county’s R-12 residential district. The case now goes to the Board of Supervisors, which is scheduled for a final vote at its June 26 meeting.

The strange line in the tree clearing next to the red box were the development will go is the former Tidewater and Western Railroad Narrow gauge Railroad. If there is a phase 2 to this project I really hope they turn the railroad bed into a path going though the future phases of the development. But I really hope Chesterfield County has any ideas to pay for rebuilding Gentio Road between the Chesterfield County Line and Brandermill to take all this traffic into account.
