Rezoning paves way for new business

HARRISONBURG — A new business is coming to McGaheysville.

The Board of Supervisors approved a request from The Broadway Group LLC to rezone 1.77 acres along Spotswood Trail (U.S. 33) in McGaheysville from residential to business at its meeting on Jan. 11.

Supervisors Michael Breeden, Pablo Cuevas, Rick Chandler, Fred Eberly and Bill Kyger voted in favor of the request.

The Broadway Group has been tight-lipped on the company eyeing the parcel at the corner of Spotswood Trail and Judy Lane, but a representative of the Huntsville, Ala.-based firm has called it “one of the fastest-growing retailers in America.”

The representative also said the store would sell items such as detergent, eggs and milk.

The request was tabled in December while the company sought to address concerns for the building’s appearance from the board.

“We received information back from The Broadway Group that satisfied in our minds, the appearance of the ... building,” Breeden said.

The only entrance that would be allowed to the land would be from Judy Lane.

The unnamed company is buying two parcels from Gary and Dwight Burner and part of a third from McDaniel Brothers for its business. The parcels are near Peak View Plaza, a small strip center containing a bank, a sub shop, an insurance agency and a medical office.

In other business, Chandler was elected as the board’s chairman. He succeeds Kyger who served in 2016.

The chairman’s main responsibility is to run meetings.

Eberly was appointed as vice-chairman, which allows him to serve as chairman if Chandler is absent. Eberly was also added as one of the board’s representatives on the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Metropolitan Organization’s policy board.
