The Fenton Mill Team will host their second “Informational Open House” Sept. 8 from 4-7 p.m.

Fenton Mill is a new proposed master-planned community in York County. The project will consist of a range of housing types to include single family homes, townhomes and active adult (age restricted) housing.

The community had its first informational open house on June 23.

Fenton Mill Associates LLC submitted a rezoning application for a new residential community to build 836 homes off Fenton Mill Road near Interstate 64 between Newman and Barlow roads.

Due to much opposition from the Preserve Fenton Mill, a group dedicated to preventing the over-development of York County, the public hearing for the rezoning application has been postponed.

According to the application and narrative statement, the Fenton Mill community will consist of 506 single family homes, 230 townhouses, 100 age-restricted quadruplexes, along with 40,000 square feet of commercial space while maintaining the rural character of the county.

The community also aims to preserve more than 170 acres of forests and streams, with a 16-acre site dedicated to York County for a future school.

Other community amenities include an extensive trail network, parks with gathering areas and playgrounds for different age groups, picnic shelters, community gardens, a dog park, a youth U8 soccer field, and multiple clubhouses.

For safety, the open house will have three separate one-hour sessions from 4-7 p.m. Those interested in learning more about the rezoning must register for one of the sessions.

The open house will be at Picnic Shelter 1 at New Quarter Park. New Quarter Park is located at 1000 Lakeshead Drive, next to the Queens Lake neighborhood. To register for a time, you can go to their website.
