WHERE: Doswell Community Center (Rt. 1 just north of Doswell Rd.)
WHEN: 7 pm
Friends of the North Anna ask for your support tonight at 7 pm!
Let Martin Marietta and the County know YOU care what they do with the
scenic North Anna River and battlefield.
Hanover County Staff will make recommendations regarding
Martin Marietta's request for a Conditional Use Permit to expand their quarry.
This valuable natural resource is under threat!
The North Anna River is one of Hanover's and the nation's rich
treasures. Martin Marietta has been purchasing more and more land along the river
and wants to greatly expand its quarry operations. This land just "happened" to be
a last minute change in the Comprehensive Plan so people did not have a chance to
address it during the land use planning process.
Hanover County has no other significant public conservation areas
that we know of either in its parks or anywhere else and has done
very, very little to recognize the value of its many beautiful
rivers. In this respect it is far behind other counties including
Chesterfield. This is one of the natural areas of Hanover that
needs to be recognized and protected.
Please do not let our County representatives continue to destroy our resources.
For more information:
Please write to Bucky Stanley and your own District Supervisor
to let them know preservation of the North Anna River is important.
These are two of the supervisor addresses. For other contact info:
