Middleburg residents might be surprised by tentative plans to revamp Federal Street and increase the town population by a couple hundred residents.

About 50 residents convened at the Hill School on May 29 to learn about the town’s draft comprehensive plan, which the Planning Commission and Town Planner Will Moore have been working on with the Berkley Group since March 2017. Todd Gordon, the group’s planning director, gave an hour-long presentation on the draft’s 39 pages, outlining the town’s plans to redevelop Federal Street for mixed use development, Salamander Resort’s plans to build more than 100 new homes and the importance of residents’ involvement in the town and county’s comprehensive plan updates.


Gordon’s main talking point on the draft plan, which looks forward two decades, centered on land use, with an emphasis on a potential $1.8 million Federal Street redevelopment to include the installation of sidewalks, crosswalks, lighting and green space.
