Route 3 Steering Committee to Present Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan A joint meeting of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, Economic Development Authority, and Planning Commission has been scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. The meeting will take place at the Locust Grove Middle School. Immediately following, and scheduled to commence at 7:00 p.m., a public briefing of the Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan (GWAP) will be presented by the Route 3 Steering Committee and staff. This public briefing is intended to be the kick-off of the public comment (in writtng) period for the Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan. The 7:00 p.m. meeting will include a presentation of the Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan by members of the Steering Committee and staff. The Plan’s maps and associated documents will be available for review, after which written comments to the Plan will be accepted as well. For those of you who may say "why should I attend this meeting"? This meeting is all about growth in our county and how to grow the county respectfully with careful planning. I hope more than just a few show up.
This is an important issue for Orange County residents so I urge you to come out and become educated on the future of our area. Read more about the Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan here.
