At last night’s meeting, the Rockingham Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to deny the rezoning request to make way for a truck stop in Mauzy.
A big thank you to everyone who made calls, wrote letters, and showed up last night. The room was packed! And Mauzy residents spoke with such effectiveness about what they cherish in their community – the rural, agriculture character and the investments in and work towards clean and plentiful water. It was really inspiring. And they were heard!
So, first, take a second to celebrate the community coming together to speak up for the long term vision, the unique resources and the character in this part of the county.
Then, please send a quick note of thanks to the Rockingham supervisors. They did their research, listened to Rockingham residents, and they did the right thing.
Again, big thanks to everyone who contributed to this terrific outcome!
