FY12-13 TRANSPORATION ENHANCEMENT PROJECT ENDORSEMENT/BLUE RIDGE TUNNEL PROJECT: Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt a resolution of support of the ongoing Blue Ridge Tunnel Project in order to qualify for funding from the VDOT Commonwealth Transportation Board.
NOVEMBER MEETING: Supervisors voted unanimously to change their November 8th meeting to November 10th to avoid a conflict with Election Day.
TJPDC BROWNSFIELD GRANT/LETTER OF SUPPORT: Ms. Brennan said that, while Nelson County may or may not have sites that would benefit from the Brownsfield program, other areas of the region might. She said that supporting the program would not hurt the county. Supervisors voted 1-4 (Mr. Hale, Mr. Harvey, Mr. Bruguiere and Mr. Johnson voting no) to adopt a letter of support. Mr. Hale and Mr. Johnson said that the Board had requested information on any sites identified in Nelson and that information had not been provided for consideration.
