The Prince William Board of Supervisors approved the rezoning of 128 acres outside of Haymarket for the development of Carter’s Mill, a new age-restricted community of about 490 homes in Northern, VA. The community will be developed near U.S. 15 and John Marshall Highway.

The unanimous vote changed the parcel’s zoning designation from planned business district and agricultural to planned mixed residential. The change was submitted by the landowner in order to allow for new construction of homes for people aged 55 and better.

Carter’s Mill will require at least one household member to be 55 or older with children under the age of 18 able to stay with residents for up to 90 days. The community will offer single-family homes and attached villas and will feature a clubhouse with both indoor and outdoor pools, pickleball and bocce ball courts, and a 2.2-mile walking trail.

The trail network will include benches and signs explaining the Civil War history of the area since the community is near the October 1863 Battle of Buckland Mills. Developers also plan to add about six miles of sidewalks inside the community and a shared-use path along John Marshall Highway that will connect the neighborhood to shopping areas across the street.

The property is located across the street from a Walmart shopping center and between John Marshall Highway and the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. The active adult community will also be close to hospitals including Novant and the University of Virginia Health System’s Haymarket Medical Center.
