Pete Dolan and Jessica Pfeiffer worked with Peterson Companies and Cabela’s — a major hunting, fishing, and sporting goods store — to obtain a successful rezoning and comprehensive plan amendment that will allow the first Cabela’s location in the D.C. area. This Cabela’s location, the company’s third in Virginia, will total approximately 79,000 square feet. The property, which is located on Wellington Branch Road just south of the Route 29/I-66 interchange, will be a redevelopment of the Betco Block Plant and an extension of Virginia Gateway. The rezoning (from heavy industrial to commercial) and comprehensive plan amendment (from industrial/transportation to regional commercial center) was approved by the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors on May 12, 2015.
Below are two links to media reports about the opening of Cabela’s. County officials and residents are excited for the store and the associated economic benefits.
