Spotsylvania rejects New Post 

October 12, 2005 
Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star (VA)

Spotsylvania County supervisors last night rejected a rezoning request
for 1,500 homes that could have netted more than $53 million for
transportation, rural land preservation and other programs.

By a 5-2 margin, the board turned down Tricord Inc.'s rezoning request
for 418 acres at Routes 2 and 17 to allow construction of New Post--a
residential community that included a mix of shops and offices. Board
Chairman Bob Hagan and Supervisor Hap Connors supported the project.

Supervisor Vince Onorato, in whose district the project site falls,
called the New Post site "ideal" for industrial development, and
described as "inaccurate and self-serving" some of the documentation
used by the developer Tricord Inc. to justify the community. Other
supervisors did not comment on their vote.
