At last night’s Albemarle County Planning Commission meeting, vintner Patricia Kluge was denied the special-use permit that she sought to build a 28-home development just south of Monticello. Much of the area in question is set aside as an agricultural and forest preservation area, leaving one commissioner wondering how the proposal ever got as far as the commission, given the obvious conflict between the land use planning and Kluge’s intentions. Current zoning would permit 30 homes to be built on the property, albeit in quite a different configuration. Next, the proposal goes before the Board of Supervisors. David Dadurka has the story in today’s Progress.
