STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- The Frontier Culture Foundation's new plans to develop property on Route 250 near the museum will go before the Staunton City Council Thursday night.
As part of the plan, the land has been broken up into lots as part of the foundation's plan to develop the land to bring in retail businesses, offices and restaurants. The new plan still includes a roundabout on Cochran Parkway.
One of the new additions to the plan is a multipurpose trail for walkers, joggers and bikers. The Frontier Culture Museum's Executive Director John Avoli said adding the trails just made sense.
"As the City of Staunton becomes more friendly toward bicycle paths and walking trails and so on and so forth, it makes sense, it's logical, to connect this with the balance of it. It's not that much more expensive. While we're doing this, why not do it?" said Avoli.
The Staunton City Council approved the original master plan back in October and will vote on the new plan Thursday night.
