Welcome to The Maysville Voice, the newsletter for those who reside and vote in the Maysville District in Buckingham County. I am pleased to bring you lots of information, links, and resources to inform and engage with you as your County Supervisor. This newsletter is filled with lots of resources and information for our Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2022 Board Meeting, which I hope you will consider attending.
Take note that this month we will meet on Tuesday, Oct. 11, not Monday, Oct. 10 due to the Columbus Day Holiday the County observes.
We don’t have an overloaded agenda for next week. We have no new zoning cases to consider, though we do have two Special Use Permit hearings for two Air BnBs, campsites, and event venues; a separate public hearing on adjusting some building permit ordinance fees; a presentation of a resolution in memoriam to the family of the late John Kitchen Jr., who served honorably for many years as the Maysville District Supervisor; a consideration of reappointments to the Planning Commission and Industrial Development Authority; appointment of a new board member to the Anti-Litter Task Force; and consideration of a recommendation regarding pit privies.
Please make sure to pay close attention to what you sign up for to speak as you must sign up and be recognized before speaking during public comment or any public hearing.
Our upcoming Board of Supervisors regular meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on
Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2022, in the Peter Francisco Board Room in the County
Administration Complex on Route 60. I encourage you to attend to learn more

Here is the recording of our latest Statewide Gold Mine Committee Meeting, which I hope you’ll take a look and listen at. Joe Lerch, of the Virginia Association of Counties, outlined how local zoning works and noted ways Boards of Supervisors could ban gold mining in their Zoning Ordinances with ease.
