CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — Chesapeake's City Council is taking another look at a proposed subdivision that's opposed by the Navy.
Council members voted 5-4 earlier this month to rezone more than 15 acres a few miles from Fentress Naval Auxiliary Landing Field. Seacrest Homes and Development wants to build a 31-home subdivision on the property.
Media outlets report that the council unanimously agreed Tuesday to hold a public hearing and another vote on March 19.
The property is in a noise zone where the Navy wants to curb development.
The Navy says the council's approval of the project violated a commitment that Chesapeake and Virginia Beach made to reduce density around nearby Oceana Naval Air Station.
Oceana commander Capt. Bob Geis says the Navy is pleased that the decision is being reviewed.
