Petition to STOP the Proposed Airport District at New London and the Rezoning of Agricultural Preserve Lands in Forest, Virginia

Petition summary and background
This petition is to stop the approval of the proposed Airport District Zoning Ordinance written by Bedford County and the rezoning of the Agricultural Preserve District adjoining the New London Airport to an Airport District (Rezoning Application #RZ200002).

The New London Airport is currently a Public Use Airport privately owned by Liberty University Inc. and is licensed by the State of Virginia.   Liberty University has not provided the County or the public with a detailed Airport Master Plan, an environmental impact study or noise compatibility study.    Liberty provides no detailed analyses of the impacts to the adjoining properties or the surrounding areas.

The Bedford County Planning staff has stated on record that they were not afforded the opportunity to diligently research and ensure that the future airport will be compliant with Virginia Department of Aviation or Federal Aviation Administration regulations.

This is a Public Safety concern!

This district has no representation for this critical vote, as the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisor representativesfor District 3 are Liberty employees.
Action petitioned for
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to:

Vote NO on the Proposed Airport District Zoning Ordinance and Rezoning Application #RZ200002

Respectfully request that Ron Steele and Charla Bansley recuse themselves from voting to avoid any conflict of interest
