Eileen Carlock has filed an application for a special use permit (SUP) to operate a banquet facility located at 850 Mill Creek Crossroads, Luray, VA, and further identified by tax map number 62-(A)-10A. The parcel contains 1.75 acres and is zoned as Agriculture (A-1). The property is improved with an existing single-family dwelling that is currently licensed to operate as a short-term tourist rental known as Skyline Meadow. 

The applicant also owns the property adjacent located at 900 Mill Creek Crossroads, Luray, VA, and further identified by tax map number 62-(A)-10B. This parcel contains 18.922 acres and is also zoned as A-1. This property is improved with an existing single-family dwelling, where the applicant currently resides. The applicant desires to use the land for both of the above listed parcels as part of the banquet facility. The existing single-family dwellings will not be used as part of the banquet facility.  

Under § 125-4 of the Page County Zoning Ordinance, a banquet facility is defined as follows: “An establishment which is rented by individuals or groups to accommodate private functions, including, but not limited to, banquets, weddings, anniversaries, and other such similar celebrations.” Pursuant to § 125-10 D. (16) of the Page County Zoning Ordinance, banquet facilities require an SUP in the A-1 zoning district.
