Citizen Comment Requested on July 13 – Bypass and Government Process

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

Chair of the Board, Ann Mallek, has added the change in policy on the Western Bypass to the agenda for the evening Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday, July 13, 2011. Citizen comment, two minutes per speaker, is invited.

There are two distinct issues of concern: One is the vote on changing the wording of the MPO to allow funds to be spent on construction of the roadway. The other, separate issue, is the destruction of local government processes during late night action votes without particular public comment.

We must begin rebuilding the public’s confidence in their representative local government.

Advance Mills Bridge Party

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Remember that great day – April 16, 2010, when the Advance Bridge Mills opened? With the support of 500 homeowners sending daily emails to get the attention of VDOT, we managed to get our replacement bridge in a time of meager funds. The importance of the bridge for the safety of local residents and the connectivity of the region helped prioritize the project. (see photos below)

In October 2011, the wooden bridge over Jacob’s Run, 2 miles south of the Advance Mills Bridge, will close for four months. The new bridge will be a concrete box structure and will be 24 feet wide, a large improvement for safety on the corner.
