Site located at 601 S. Carlin Springs Road
About the Project
The County completed the acquisition of the South Carlin Springs property located at 601 S. Carlin Springs Road on Dec. 31, 2019. The 11.57-acre site was previously occupied by Virginia Hospital Center (VHC). The County is currently developing plans to remove the VHC building as it is incompatible with any County uses. Future uses of the site are contingent on available funding. A public process to determine uses has not been set.
