Hanover residents remain in the “no”

At the November 4 CHF Citizens Educational Forum on proposed (nearly Short Pump-sized) developments east of Ashland, recurring questions posed to county officials received unsatisfactory answers. A sampling is as follows:

Q. Will the county adopt more stringent runoff standards on their own?
A. No.

Q. Is there a one-stop county liaison citizens can contact when they are adversely affected by development?
A. No.

Q. Are traffic improvements or mitigation strategies being considered for Mount Hermon Road south of East Ashland in response to citizen requests and suggestions?
A. No.

Q. Will there be an economic feasibility study?
A. No.

Q. Will there be affordable housing?
A. Maybe, if the market calls for it.

Important issues, often the same ones arising with any zoning case, have not been meaningfully addressed.
