Contact Supervisors NOW about the Hickory Grove rezoning

Now is the time for Hanover citizens to contact the Supervisors regarding the proposed rezoning to Mixed Use and B-2 commercial (REZ2019-00019) of a 51-acre parcel at the corner of Route 54 and Providence Church Road. The public hearing is planned for January 27.

For many reasons the rezoning is inappropriate for the site. It means, to name a few problems, increased traffic volume on overburdened Rte 54, destruction of the rural eastern gateway to historic Hanover Courthouse, proposed gas station/convenience store with 16 pumps, drive-through fast food restaurant, leapfrogging development, light pollution and trash.

This rezoning lies in Supervisor A.M. “Bucky” Stanley’s Beaverdam District. Let him and the other Supervisors know this proposed development is entirely out of sync with the semi-rural environment to the east of Ashland.

Use this template for your correspondence with Mr. Stanley and the Supervisors.

Let your Supervisors know this proposed development does not enhance your quality of life.
