(Updated 2:30 p.m.) A fight to save a 19th century home in the North Ridge neighborhood is about to head to the City Council after nearby residents appealed an earlier Planning Commission decision.
The owner of the house at 506 N. Overlook Drive is seeking a permit to adjust the property lines for two parcels on the site, the first steps toward what will eventually involve tearing down the house on the property.
The home was built in 1878 by Hampshire Fractious, a freed Black man who lived in the city sometime in the late 19th century.
Nearby residents fought throughout the city process to try and save the house, but the Planning Commission approved the subdivision, although with a requirement that staff be able to access the house and study it to see if there is any remaining historic value.
According to a news release from the City of Alexandria, the City council will review the public appeal at the Saturday, May 15, meeting:
Public Hearing and Consideration of an appeal of the Planning Commission’s April 8, 2021 decision to approve a Preliminary Plat of a Subdivision (SUB #2020-00009) at 506 North Overlook Drive to re-subdivide two existing lots.
