LKA Lake Anna Area Special Plancontinued from page 7 will be the expectation rather than the ex- ception. “Low density residential zoning should be the primary land use designation for the majority of residential areas in the Lake Anna region. Exceptions should go through a rigorous review and screening process and community input should be taken into consideration. Surrounding land uses should be taken into consideration so as to avoid ‘swiss-cheese’ zoning and en- sure a coherent and predictable building pattern. Any exception should yield a sig- nificant benefit to adjacent property own- ers, the County, and the environment.” The report cites 2010 US Census data that reveals 33,153 people living in Louisa County with 3,235 of them within the Lake Anna growth area (most of the Louisa shoreline portion of the lake), consisting of 9.75% of the County’s population with 43.6% of of LKAers over 55 years of age. Furthermore, there are 12,944 house- holds in Louisa County with 11% of those in the Lake Anna growth area. While the County has an occupied housing rate of over 79%, Lake Anna has just over 50% occupied housing unit rate that reflects the high seasonal and weekender use rate by out-of-town owners. Increasing traffic on Lake Anna area roads is well covered in the draft plan. It reveals traffic has increased significantly around the lake in 10 years. From 1997 to 2011 traffic volume has increased 40% on the Louisa roads around the lake. From 2011 to 2015 traf- fic volume rates stabilized to a two per cent increase per year. Peak traffic hour volumes increased an incredible 63.75% from 2011-15. The conclusion of analyzing these fig- ures is that many of the roads experienc- ing this tremendous increase (Rt 652 for example) were never intended to receive so much traffic.
