The Gateway Crossing Area at exit 150 is the primary entrance into the County from the south. It is the center of growth and development in Botetourt and, as such, needs the tools to encourage responsible and attractive development patterns. The Gateway Crossing Overlay is an additional chapter in the County's zoning ordinance that intends to do just that, by providing an overlying set of standards promoting walkable, pedestrian-oriented design that creates a sense of place rather than a disjointed and disconnected series of individual developments. This zoning overlay is an opportunity instead of more regulation. There is NO taxpayer cost or budget associated with the zoning change.
