Speak out on land- use plan


Date published: 1/21/2013

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Residents living near Fort A.P. Hill will have three opportunities this week to weigh in on a land-use study.

The towns of Bowling Green and Port Royal, along with Caroline, Essex, King George and Spotsylvania counties, are working with the Army on the study, which should be completed later this year.

The localities' concerns include noise and vibration from military training disrupting neighborhoods near the Army post in Caroline County.

The Army's concern is that development outside the gates could limit activities and threaten the post's long-term viability.

The first meeting is from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday at the U.S. Army Reserve Center Cooke, 26568 Taliaferro Trail, Fort A.P. Hill.

Another meeting is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday at the Caroline County Community Services Center, 17202 Richmond Turnpike, Milford.

The final meeting is from 6-9 p.m. Thursday at Lee Hill Community Center, 1 H.C.C. Drive, in Spotsylvania.

The meetings include an open house, with maps and project staff available. Each meeting will include a formal presentation at 7 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session at 7:30.
