PWC Ordinance Changes Will Benefit Business

Amendments to Proffers Will Facilitate Economic Growth in the County

On October 17th, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted on a series of zoning and DCSM changes that will facilitate commercial development in Prince William County.

The Board voted to approve changes related to minor modifications to proffers and Special Use Permit conditions as well as changes to Special Uses and Use-Related Development Standards. Both of these amendments will help smooth the process for commercial development in Prince William County by eliminating the need for public hearings for minor changes to approved projects and for certain uses in commercial and industrial districts.

Proposed amendments to allow administrative flexibility in buffers required for small commercial projects has been deferred to January to allow staff to work with industry and citizen organizations on the final language of the changes.
