Notice is hereby given that, in accordance with 15.2-2308 of the Code of Virginia, as amended, the Town of Montross Board of Zoning Appeals will hold a public hearing beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 in the George D. English building, 111 Polk Street, Montross, Virginia to consider and decide a Special Exception application. As required by the provisions of Code of Virginia, Section 15.2-2204, as amended, the purpose of the public hearing is to receive comments on the following Special Exception application:
Request by property owner Stanley Schoppe, 17111 Kings Highway, Montross, Virginia 22520 and Spread Your Wings Supportive Counseling, LLC, 2430 Southland Drive, Chester, Virginia 23831 for a Special Exception permit to use the property/structure as described below by the leasee:
The purpose of the zoning exception application is to be able to use the facility as a stabilization facility. The property is currently not zoned for a short-term stabilization facility. Our facility will help stabilize individuals who are experiencing a form of psychosis in a professional environment. Each case is individualized, and we treat each patient depending upon their needs.
We are a lower than hospitalization facility, because not all patients having psychosis breakdowns need to be hospitalized. We allow patients to be stabilized and rehabbed throughout their stay, which can range from 1 week to 6 months.
Our staffing will consist of licensed professional counselors, therapist, qualified mental health professionals, nurse, CNAs and a coordinator.
Our facility will be licensed and regulated through the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Development. They will monitor and inspect to ensure that we are up to code and regulation with the state.
Spread Your Wings Supportive Counseling's mission is to promote growth to members of our community. It is our mission to provide effective training and education to members within our community who are in need of guidance in the areas of mental health and are having difficulty managing daily life activities, mental health symptoms, health, safety and more. Spread Your Wings Supportive Counseling, LLC believes that effective, ethical and quality service will enhance the motivation of our clients in addition to benefiting the entire family. Spread Your Wings Supportive Counseling aims to decrease the stigma mental health has within our communities. Spread Your Wings Supportive Counseling, LLC will provide fair, ethical and quality services within the communities we serve.
After the public hearing, the Board of Zoning Appeals is expected to take legislative action on the application.
A copy of the application is available at the Town Office, 15869 Kings Highway, Montross, Virginia for review during regular business hours Monday through Friday, between 9:00am and 5:00pm
