The SEP requests include one to allow a medical care facility in a Shopping Center Use District, one to allow a third dwelling for a vacation rental on 160 acres, and one for a storage yard for materials and equipment.

The change of proffers request is to allow a restricted Business (B-2) zone property to be used for offices.

Fralin Real Estate Corp. has a contractual agreement to purchase the former Planters Market and Elderberry Café property at the corner of Roanoke Road and Wendover Drive in Daleville.

Planters Market LLC currently owns the property that’s divided into four parcels. Planters Market is asking for a proffer change on two of the parcels that were restricted to use as a commercial nursery only so Fralin Real Estate can develop the property for offices.

New proffered conditions propose to exclude certain uses within the Business (B-1) and (B-2) Use Districts and maintain substantial conformance with a submitted concept plan.

The two other parcels do not have any limitations for B-1 and B-2 uses.

Proffers Fralin Real Estate is offering include no access from Orchard Drive, which runs off Wendover Drive, keeping an existing buffer of trees for neighboring residential property, and “corporation” architectural style for any buildings.

The buildings would be concentrated at the front of the property on Roanoke Road and access would be from Wendover Drive.

According to its application for the proffer change, Fralin has been in conversations with three general office tenants already.

The Planning Commission meets at 6 p.m. in the Old General District Courtroom. The Board of Supervisors has the final say on all four requests, and is scheduled to hold public hearings and take up the Planning Commission’s recommendations Tuesday, June 27 at 6 p.m. at Greenfield Education and Training Center.
