Northampton County Slow Down and Ensure Public Participation

To be delivered to Shorekeeper Petition Drive, Virginia Eastern Shorekeeper

Petition Statement

We call on Northampton officials to follow the intent of the law by allowing for the development of a new Comprehensive Plan before proposed Zoning Ordinances can be adopted. Northampton County has an obligation to provide a road map for the future before making major changes to the code. By following proper procedures they would ensure the highest degree of public participation in this process.
There are currently 499 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

Zoning Ordinances are hugely influential on the day to day life of the average citizen effecting how we grow our businesses, what we live next to, and how we treat our natural resources. This process is far too important for the County to side step proper procedures for public participation and involvement. We deserve to have a publicly vetted Comprehensive Plan for Northampton's future that everyone has had a chance to weigh in on. Shorekeeper will be presenting these petitions to county officials before public comment begins March 11th.
