Here is the agenda and meeting packet for the Monday, Jan. 13 (6 p.m.) meeting: http://buckinghamcountyva.org/Board%20Packets/2020/jan%2013%202020%20bos%20pckt.pdf. There is a public hearing planned regarding a zoning text amendment (regarding private parks and playgrounds). Please consider attending! If you can’t make it, I send out an after-meeting summary. But it would be great to see you.
Please continue to pray for the Yoder and Lee families, who have been impacted by the tragic Amish buggy accident before Christmas. The Amish Transportation Committee, established by the Board of Supervisors, is taking this very seriously. You can donate to the Yoder family by contacting Wise Ridge Country Store at 434-983-1111 or stopping by the store on Route 15 South.
As I noted last month, the reassessment notices have been mailed to all land owners. For more information on this and the process to appeal, contact the Commissioner of the Revenue’s Office at 434-969-4972.
I had the opportunity to attend, along with Assistant County Administrator Karl Carter, a VACo forum on the governor’s proposed fiscal year 2020-2022 budget, which will impact all localities, including Buckingham. Here is a link with more information: https://www.vaco.org/finance-forum-previews-busy-general-assembly-session-ahead/ Let me know any questions you have.
There is work being performed as part of an exciting project at Sprouse’s Corner. This is a project that has been very long in the works. This is an over $1.2 million project that will not only bring businesses to this area, but a project is not being paid for by county taxpayers, but other granted funds the county has been seeking over the past several years. Photo below. After water and sewer were expanded to the Route 20 and 15 intersection, several businesses came. I am confident the same will happen at Sprouse’s Corner.

Please consider ways to continue supporting our youth this new year, such as attending a basketball or other winter sporting game. Visit bcpschools.org for more information.
Here is a link for planned VDOT road work. Be aware of bridge work being done on Route 60 East of Sprouses Corner and the bridge is restricted to one lane. http://www.virginiadot.org/VDOT/Travel/Travel_Alerts/Lynchburg/asset_upload_file503_29807.pdf. Use caution in this area.
As always, should you have an issue or questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me or text me at 434-390-7023, or email me here, or even drop by and visit. I’d love to hear from you and am always open to listen.
I’m proud to represent you and your family on the Buckingham Board of Supervisors!
Take care, Jordan Miles
