Planning Commission May Revisit Atlantic Sewage Permit Issue
A group of Atlantic are outraged over the attempt to circumvent the existing ordinance. In a letter to area residents urging them to attend the meeting, Ronnie Thomas who appears to be heading up the protest says,"we cannot believe that the county would even consider letting an outside developer come into the county, rewrite its laws and zoning ordinances that are designed to protect its citizens and their interest. The issue has already caused much tension in the community and has put the Board of Supervisors on alert that they may have a serious decision to make involving this matter."
The letter also goes on to urge residents to come to the meeting to protect their rights and hold their elected officials accountable for their actions. It also states that if approved this change will effect all property owners in Accomack County and that in the future residents will have no say over a sewage treatment plant being built next to your home.
The group urges anyone with questions to contact Thomas at 824-3012 for more information.
