The Village Overlay zoning was passed by the town in November 2015. It allows for the density of homes proposed by the would-be developer of Willshire. The Village Overlay Zone documents are available to the public on the Poolesville Town website.
In this image (above) the proposed development is mapped onto a satellite image of Poolesville and shows the density of the proposed plan relative to the density of our surrounding small town. This image illustrates the contrast between the surrounding lots and the approximately 1/10 acre lots of the proposed development. In our opinion, such a dense development is not in keeping with our rural setting. If you have concerns about this zoning, please contact us to get involved and help preserve our small-town charm.
