HAMPTON __ City Council recently approved a rezoning application for commercial use. The applicant? DT Retail Properties LLC, a subsidiary of Dollar Tree based in Chesapeake.

The property, 1602 Briarfield Road, 804 and 606 Aberdeen Road, was a combination of two properties: one zoned for commercial use and the other zoned for low density residential use. The commercial use property was an old gas station and the latter is a grassy area.

The application was approved with 14 proffered conditions, including creating a 15-foot “buffer” in the form of landscaping between the nearby residential areas.

While the DT Retail Properties LLC. did not submit an application to build a new Dollar Tree, their presentation included the possibility of a 10,000-square-foot store, at least 40 parking spaces, sidewalks and a six-foot fence.

Both properties at the corner of Aberdeen and Briarfield roads are now zoned for commercial use for a retail store. The next City Council meeting is Sept. 11.

It’s unclear if DT Retail Properties LLC. submitted a building proposal since the council’s agenda has not been posted.
