By. Kara L. Reese, Greene County Field Officer
The last of three Focus Groups aimed at gaining public input on the revision of Greene County’s Comprehensive Plan will be held Thursday, October 17, 2008 at 6 pm. The meeting will take place in the County Administrative office located in Stanardsville, Virginia. This meeting is open to all Greene County Residents and Greene County Business Owners.
There have been two other meetings that were poorly attended by the public. Free Enterprise Forum estimates that less than half of a percent of the County’s population has been represented that these meetings.
After listening to a short a presentation on what the Comprehensive Plan is and why it is important, citizens will have an opportunity to break into work sessions and provide their ideas regarding the strengths and weaknesses of Greene County. Citizens will also have an opportunity to identify areas where the County needs to change or improve.
Public input is very important to provide a wide variety of views and ideas on how Greene County should be developed. Free Enterprise Forum encourages residents and business owners with an interest in Greene County to attend Thursday’s meeting to assure that your voice is clearly heard.
