June 10, 2005 Last year, the owners of Crow’s Nest, Stafford Lakes LP (also known as K&M Properties), went to the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) claiming they had the right to slice up the peninsula into more than 8,000 lots. When the BZA ruled against them, Stafford Lakes LP went to court and appealed. In early June, a judge ruled against them. (Read the story.) The ruling does not affect Stafford Lakes’ current plan to build about 680 houses on one-acre lots on the peninsula. (Read the ruling, a PDF file which may take a moment to load.) Stafford Lakes LP has appealed the circuit court ruling to the Virginia Supreme Court.
