The Lunenburg County Planning Commission will hold public hearings and consider providing conditional use permits for three projects at its Tuesday, Jan. 19, meeting.

At the meeting, to be held 7:30 p.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the court’s building, public input is being sought on the operation of a towing business and impound, a youth residential group home and a bed and breakfast.

Joseph Kellum is considering operating a towing business and establishing an impound at Bruceville Road, in Meherrin, on property owned by Holly Kellum.

Meanwhile, Timothy Dow and New Generation Youth Services are planning to operate a youth residential group home at 143 Unity Road in Kenbridge. Owned by Ulysses Jones, the property previously had an active conditional use permit to operate an adult residential facility.

In addition, Sarah and Collin Brown want to operate a bed and breakfast at 11586 Courthouse Road in Lunenburg. The approximately nine-acre parcel is currently owned by James and Kittrell Elseasser. The Browns’ additionally hope to host weddings on the property.

The Planning commission hears all requests and makes recommendations to the board of supervisors.
