In a recent local newspaper article, it was reported that the Town of Middleburg was approving 114 new homes to be built in the village. This is a wholly inaccurate statement.

This was reported, incorrectly, from a recent Town of Middleburg open house. We were providing a public presentation on the draft of our new Comprehensive Plan.

What was said during that session was that the Town COULD have up to an additional 114 homes under our existing plan, and that most all of those are homes that are allowed under the existing plan on the Salamander property, which was approved in 2004-2005.

To be clear, in this new plan there are no additional or new houses being approved or allowed in the town. Such a change would only happen with approval from the Planning Commission, after a full public hearing, and then after approval of the Town Council, again after a full public hearing.

There are currently no plans to add more houses to Middleburg. This does not mean that the Town would not consider any viable application or request from a land owner, but it would only be done with full input and support from the residents of Middleburg.
