ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Plans are moving forward for a new neighborhood at Rio Road East and Belvedere Boulevard in Albemarle County.

On Tuesday, the Albemarle County Planning Commission voted 3-to-2 to approve an application rezoning the property from ‘residential’ to ‘neighborhood model district’.

The rezoning would make way for a mixed-use development with up to 28 residential units, as well as small-scale retail or professional offices. The commission did request some modifications to things like sidewalks, curbs, and gutters.
