Say NO to an industrial mega site planned just yards from the Great Dismal Swamp!

This petition had 818 supporters


Urge our city council members to vote NO to the amendment to the comprehensive plan that will allow an industrial mega-site on the Frank T. Williams farm tract located on Highway 17 and Ballahack Road.

Save our local history, culture, environment, wetlands, drinking water, and country living.

This proposal has the potential to turn Ballahack Road into a four-lane highway, increasing flooding in our area, impact drinking water, threaten wild life (including endangered species), and threaten two historic places listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks. It will also lead to massive housing development in that area which will burden our schools, infrastructure and first responders.
