The Vienna Town Council is looking to delay the soon-approaching deadline to revise the Maple Avenue Commercial (MAC) zone.
The moratorium was first put in place in the fall of 2018 so that town staff could redesign the town’s guidelines. Since then, it has been extended several times, drawing criticism from some residents and town officials.
Back in November, Vienna officials voted to push the moratorium to June 30.
But now as the town faces challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty about whether its election that is less than two weeks away will get delayed, town officials want to extend the moratorium again.
At the meeting on Monday (April 27), the council will consider pushing the moratorium until June 30, 2022.
If the council OKs a public hearing on the proposal, the matter will also go before the Planning Commission. The public hearing would be held June 1.
