This week, Planning Committee and City Council approved commercial and residential zoning amendments in Stittsville.
Once it is confirmed that the existing infrastructure has the capacity to support new development, the Poole Creek Village subdivision could grow by three residential lots. The currently vacant land was previously in a floodplain, where development is not permitted. The Poole Creek floodplain was updated in 2016, making the land available for development.
A grocery store, two retail stores and a restaurant could be coming to 5960 Fernbank Road, once water services are extended to the currently vacant site. The zoning would also permit other commercial and residential uses.
