A moratorium on new development applications for Maple Avenue that was scheduled to expire in June has been pushed to November.
The Vienna Town Council voted on Monday (May 13) to extend the temporary suspension of the Maple Avenue Commercial (MAC) zone to November 15.
The moratorium first went into effect last September to allow the town staff time to redesign the town’s guidelines.
Since then, the Planning Commission, the Board of Architectural Review and the Town Council have held individual and joint work sessions on draft design guidelines.
Additionally, the Town of Vienna also commissioned a Maple Avenue Corridor Multimodal Transportation and Land Use Study, which is expected to be received this summer and could be incorporated into the design guidelines.
Final design guidelines and amendments are anticipated to be done by September.
