The Strasburg Town Council is set to discuss the town’s proposed budget and the proposed Cedar Valley development at 33227 Old Valley Pike during its work session on Monday.
Town Manager Wyatt Pearson said that in the budget conversation during Monday’s work session, the town will look at projected revenues and the Capital Improvements Plan.
During a budget work session earlier this month, the town discussed projected revenues from the meals tax, the lodging tax and sales tax. Pearson said that in Monday’s discussion, the town will discuss “water and sewer projections and all the other sources of revenue that we pull from a town perspective.”
Town Council will also go over the town’s five-year Capital Improvements Plan. Pearson said that in that discussion, the town will discuss proposed capital projects, funding for them and the projected costs for the projects.
The town is still waiting for a recommendation from the Planning Commission on that plan, Pearson added.
“We’re just presenting briefly to council what was proposed to the Planning Commission and then we’re going to wait to hear from [Planning Commission] … before council rules on it,” Pearson said. “So we’ll revisit the Capital Improvements Plan likely at the April 1 work session.”
In addition to discussing the proposed budget, Town Council will talk about the proposed Cedar Valley development. Pearson said the project’s applicant wanted to go over the proposed development with Town Council prior to submitting a preliminary development plan.
“He just wants to have a conversation with [council] before he submits his preliminary development plans to the Planning Commission,” Pearson said.
During that conversation, council members are set to cover potential traffic calming measures at the development and whether or not Cedar Valley Road should be constructed to connect to Colley Block Road from the beginning of the project. Some council members have expressed a desire to see the development have two entrances and exits from the beginning of the project.
