The Crescent Parke zoning application will be headed back to the Leesburg Town Council no later than early March for another public hearing.
The council recently decided to send back the application to the Planning Commission to work out the remaining land use and zoning issues. At that time, the council expected to have the panel’s recommendations by January. On Monday night, the council amended its motion to allow the application to be advertised for a new public hearing on or before March 8.
Christine Gleckner, representing the developer, appeared before the council Monday night to ensure that the motion had built in flexibility to allow the public hearing to be held sooner than March 8 and no later than that date. Responding to a concern voiced from the council, Gleckner said there likely wouldn’t be time following a Planning Commission public hearing for a large-scale overhaul of the application, only the opportunity to integrate commissioners’ concerns into the package presented to the council.
The 53-acre Crescent Parke application seeks approval for 198 townhouses, 96 stacked townhouses and 96 multifamily dwelling units. Nonresidential uses would include a maximum of 110,550 square feet of office space, 137,175 square feet of retail, an area for a future hotel, and a 2,000-square-foot community room.
