Section 5 – V-1 Village Center District.
§ 19.6-71 V-1 Village Center District.
A. Purpose. The purpose of this district is to establish areas which will serve as the focal point for cultural and commercial activity for the rural service areas of the County. The density recommended for these areas is intended to average between one and three units per acre. Small country stores, family restaurants, and similar small service and personal service businesses, in addition to public and institutional buildings such as schools, post offices, and places of religious assembly, are commonly found at these crossroads locations. This district brings a sense of community to the surrounding rural areas, with an emphasis on providing essential goods and services to rural residents, but is not intended to be an employment destination. New developments should be carefully considered for their compatibility with the surrounding area and the purpose of the V-1 District. Any expansion of the district should be contiguous to an existing V-1 District to avoid leapfrog commercial development and excessive spreading of community services such as water and sewer.
