Wellington at River Farm Historic Overlay District (WHOD)
On November 17, 2020, the Board adopted a Resolution, directing staff to analyze the Wellington at River Farm property located at 7931 East Boulevard Drive (Tax Map Parcel 102-2 ((1)) 20), currently owned and operated by the American Horticultural Society, for inclusion within the proposed Wellington at River Farm Historic Overlay District (WHOD). A copy of the Board Matter and Resolution is provided below.
As one of several components required to establish the WHOD, the proposed Zoning Ordinance amendment would create new regulations with an emphasis on the protection of existing features of historic significance, such as contributing structures, cultural landscapes, viewsheds and potential archaeological resources. Additional components include the Staff Report on the Proposal for the Establishment of the Wellington at River Farm Historic Overlay District (WHOD Study Report), which identifies the proposed historic overlay district (HOD) boundaries, the significance of the area to be protected by inclusion in the HOD, and a description of present trends, conditions, and public objectives for preservation; a Comprehensive Plan Amendment PA 2020 IV-MV1, addressing the proposed establishment of the WHOD; and rezoning application RZ 2021-MV-001, to add the WHOD to the property and define the boundaries of the WHOD on the Zoning Map.
