LVZA 2021-0001 Amendments to Article 42, Zoning, Division 42-VIII-2, Additional
Standards, to add Section 42-304, Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems.

Consideration of an amendment to Division 42-VIII-2, to add Section 42-304, Solar Photovoltaic (PV)
Systems. The purpose of the amendment is to establish standards for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV)
equipment on buildings and lots. The Code of Virginia Section 15.2-2288.7 permits residential, commercial,
and agricultural landowners to install PV equipment and allows localities to regulate height and
setback requirements. The proposed amendment would add definitions, apply height limits and design
standards, and require PV facilities comply with setbacks applicable to accessory structures in the zoning
district in which the property is located.

The proposed zoning amendment is available for review on the Town website
