Auto parts store coming to Strasburg

Daily staff report

A new store could join Strasburg's commercial area in the town's north end.

Plans call for the construction of an Advanced Auto Parts on vacant property that fronts U.S. 11 (Old Valley Pike) near the Interstate 81 interchange. The 1-acre lot, already zoned for commercial use, lies between Drummond Brothers Auto Sales and a house.

The Strasburg Planning Commission meets Thursday for a work session to review the site plan application filed by the developer.

Economic Development and Planning Manager Kimberly Murray said Tuesday the commission could take action on the site plan at a regular meeting later this month.

The town would not hold a public hearing on a site plan, Murray explained. Since the site lies in the entrance corridor overlay district, the plan must meet certain standards in addition to those required of other commercial developments in town.

Developers submitted a site-plan application to build the store on the property, Murray said. Town Manager Judson Rex reviewed the application and then sent the documents to the pertinent departments in Strasburg, Shenandoah County and to the Virginia Department of Transportation. The town now has a set of revised of plans as a result of the comments received from the other agencies.

If town officials approve the site plan and construction of the store moves forward, Advanced Auto Parts would have another location in the region. The chain has stores in Woodstock, Stephens City and Front Royal.
