Rezoning Approval Yields 393 Homes and Permanent Conservation

Pete Dolan recently obtained rezoning and Comprehensive Plan amendment approvals for the Villages of Piedmont project in Prince William County. The Property, comprised of approximately 493 acres, is located south of I-66, at the intersection of Route 15 and Market Ridge Boulevard. The project’s unique cluster design includes 393 new homes (including single family detached homes and townhomes), a new community pool and recreational facilities, and an impressive open space commitment – the permanent conservation of more than 380 acres around the perimeter of the community that will be preserved as natural open space and be open to the public for passive recreation. Within the natural open space, the applicant will construct over 5 miles of natural trails, observation areas and educational signage that will showcase the environmental and historic features of the area

The applicant and owner’s representative, Mr. Scott Plein, envisions the project as a model for preservation-oriented land planning that will add value to the Villages of Piedmont community. The project also includes a commitment to jump start the design and construction of the long-planned widening of Rt. 15 to four lanes, south of I-66.
