Neighborhood Workplace



Ordinance Definition

Botetourt County’s Traditional Neighborhood Development ordinance defines the Workplace area of a TND as:

“An area in which industrial, commercial, civic and open space uses may be located.

The ordinance also sets further parameters for the Workplace:

“Workplace areas are an optional component of the TND. They shall contain only light industrial, commercial, civic, and open space uses, and shall be distinct areas, contiguous to some other portion of the TND, but need not be contiguous to each other or to the core area. The total land in workplace areas shall include no greater than twenty (20) percent of the total net development area of the TND.”

Permitted uses within a Workplace area:

  • All permitted residential, commercial and civic uses of the B-1 and B-2 districts for which the floor plate of structures does not exceed twenty thousand (20,000) square feet.

  • Dwelling, mixed use.

  • Additional uses from other districts of this chapter, and additional use limitations may be provided by the approved development plan for the project, subject to approval by the board of supervisors as part of a rezoning to the TND District.
