Section 7

§ 19.6-72.1 B-2 Limited Commercial District.

[Added 8-3-2015]

A. Purpose. The purpose of this district is to provide locations for a limited segment of commercial and service-related activities within the suburban service area serving larger neighborhoods. This district is intended for application along the major thoroughfares and near existing residential zoning districts. Limited Commercial Districts are most appropriately found along major arterial thoroughfares which serve large segments of the county’s residential population and provides a variety of small retail and service-related uses that are meant to be compatible with nearby residential uses. They typically will generate minimal light, noise, and other nuisances. They do not involve the constant traffic flows associated with larger retail/commercial activities.
