Floodplain Education/Information meeting

February 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Need more info? Want to make comments, but not sure the right angle? Attend our Floodplain Education/Information Meeting on FEB 5 .. drop in anytime between 6pm – 8:30pm at Rockfish Valley Community Center in the Rockfish University. We’ll have “talking points” handouts and will be available to answer any questions.

Dominion & Atlantic Coast Pipeline want to override Nelson County’s important FEMA Floodplain Management Ordinance protections. ACP needs approvals from Nelson County Board of Zoning Appeals to cross 11 floodplains in Nelson County.

Come learn what’s at stake with the Board of Zoning Appeals Variance requests and how to participate in the upcoming public hearings at Nelson County High School on February 12th. We’ll have “talking points” handouts and answer any questions you may have about submitting public comments. We MUST urge the Board of Zoning Appeals to reject Dominion/ACPs request for ordinance protections to put their pipeline through our floodplains – our water is at stake!

To get you started, here is a list of guidelines for the Feb 12th Nelson County Board of Zoning Appeals Hearing:
