FAAR recently sent a letter to the Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors expressing concerns about potential changes to the Annual Exempt Subdivision ordinance.  President Randy Walther expressed concerns about reducing the number of allowable lots for annual exempt divisions from five lots to just one, which could seriously infringe upon property owners’ rights to utilize their land as they see fit.  Many people bought land under the current rules with the intention of subdividing in the future to fund retirement, college funds, or medical bills and will now not be able to realize the full value of their asset.  Click the button below to read the letter that FAAR sent. 

This issue is slated to come before the Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, May 28, 2024.  FAAR will publish the official notice when it’s available.
