    Mr. Craig asked if there were any citizens to speak during the Citizen’s Comment Period. Mr. Richard Ruff 1485 Colony Heights Road, Goode, VA spoke regarding the positive impacts possible as a result of commercial poultry operations. There being no additional speakers, the Citizen’s Comment Period was closed. Mr. Craig moved to item 4a under Public Hearings for Special Use Permit SU140009. Mr. Mark Jordan stated Roy E. Reaves of Coleman Falls Land, LLC 2806 Walker Road, Coleman Falls, VA. is requesting a special use permit for a Industry Type I use for the collection, processing, and distribution of yard materials consisting of wood chips, leaves, grass and brush in a C-2 (General Commercial) zoning district. The yard materials will be processed by a grinder, and will be reloaded and shipped by tractor- trailer to local plants to be utilized as fuel. According to information provided by the applicant, a portable grinder will be utilized 2-4 days per month, and the hours of operation will be 8:00 am - 5:00 pm on weekdays, and on Saturdays by appointment. The applicant has also indicated that the material will stay on the site for up to two months. Ten (10) trucks are anticipated at the site on a daily basis, and the entrance will contain a gate that will be locked when the facility is closed. The subject property consists of 4.08 acres, and is located along the south side of Forest Road (Route 221) adjacent to 18477 Forest Road and 18395 Forest Road, Forest, VA. The subject property is located within the Jefferson Magisterial District identified as Tax Map Number 101-A-44 and in Election District 4. The applicant's agent is attorney Robert Wandrei, PO Box 1008, Bedford, VA. The site is currently vacant, and slopes downward from Forest Road and the adjoining properties. The adjacent properties on Forest Road are zoned General Commercial (C-2), and contain a retail use (Grainger Electrical Supply) and a computer repair use (Access Computer Services). The existing uses across Forest Road are also zoned General Commercial (C-2) and contain a combination of retail and office uses. The three located properties to the immediate rear are zoned Low Density Residential (R-1). Two of these parcels are vacant and one of these parcels (Tax Map 101A-5-17) contains a single family dwelling. Questions and comments from the Commissioners covered the following: (a) has the information on permitting from VDOT and the Corp of Engineers been completed, (b) sound decibel levels from chipping operation will be high, and (c) how close is the nearest home on the back side of the property? Mr. Craig asked for the applicant’s presentation. Mr. Bob Wandrei spoke on behalf of the applicant. Mr. Wandrei noted the property is located in a bowl and therefore this should help to alleviate the noise. He noted the plan is that the site would be open to the public to bring in brush. Mr. Wandrei stated they have been unsuccessful in reaching the appropriate person in the Grainger Company that can make a decision regarding the commercial entrance decision. Until such time as the commercial entrance issue is resolved the site will be limited to commercial landscapers only, gated and not open to the public. The anticipated number of trucks per day would be 10 at the maximum. The chipping operation will be conducted two to four times a month between the hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
