Project history

  • 2001 – The then-owner of the Property submitted a request to amend the County’s Comprehensive Plan and the Future Land Use Map for the village of Rivanna in support of this project (CPA-01-03). Prior to this Amendment, the properties were designated for Neighborhood Density uses.
  • May 15, 2002 – The Comprehensive Plan was amended and all properties included at the time of the CPA request were designated as “Community Service” for the purposes of future land use planning. Following the CPA amendment, several adjacent parcels were purchased by the owner and added to the rezoning request, which retained their “Neighborhood Density” land use designation. [1]
  • June 13, 2007 – The Board of Supervisors approved ZMA 2001-00008, Rivanna Village at Glenmore, which included 13 parcels comprising 92.711 acres, from PRD (Planned Residential Development) and RA (Rural Areas) to NMD (Neighborhood Model District).
  • May 12, 2010 – The County approved a land use plan (the “Village Master Plan”) for the area surrounding the project, including a Future Land Use Plan for the area. The area described in the Village Master Plan is described therein as “Village of Rivanna.” Although similarly named, it is important to clarify that the County development area described as the “Village of Rivanna” in the Village Master Plan includes but is not limited to this project, which is known as “Rivanna Village.” The Village Master Plan refers to the property then comprising this project as the “Village Center.” Following the approval of the 2007 ZMA, the then-current owner Glenmore Associates did not undertake the development of the project. Glenmore Associates subsequently acquired several parcels that were not subject to the NMD Rezoning, including Tax Map 80, Parcels 51, 52 and 52A. Likewise, the owner has conveyed TMP 93-A1-2, which was subject to the 2007 ZMA, to the East Rivanna Volunteer Fire Co., Incorporated. Finally, the portion of TMP 93-A1-1 that was subject to the 2007 ZMA has been added to TMP 93-A1-4.
  • June 28, 2013 – Glenmore Associates Limited Partnership conveyed all of the Rivanna Village parcels to a Rivanna Village, LLC. [2]
  • November 2016 – Property acquired by Norfolk-based Robinson Development Group. [3]
  • January 11, 2021Village of Rivanna Community Advisory Committee will get an update on the project
