Speak out against the death of our liberty
Attention fellow surfs of York County!  Final loopholes are about to be closed forever removing the last of your liberty and property rights in York County.  Sounds absurd?  I used to think so until I read some of our zoning ordinances. If you have some time click here and start reading, but read fast because it's about to expand even more!  
If you think it exaggeration to say that the county's property use and zoning ordinances effectively remove your right to property and restrict each and every use imaginable you may have and then even intend to regulate whatever has not yet been imagined, you need only take a look at this one section and it's proposed changes (changes in red):

Sec. 24.1-302. Uses not listed.  
It is the intent of this chapter to group similar or compatible land uses into specific zoning districts, either as permitted uses or as uses authorized by special permit.  In the event a particular use is not listed in this chapter as a permitted use, a specially permitted use, or an administratively permitted use, and such use is not listed in section 24.1-307 as a prohibited use and is not prohibited by law, then such use shall not be permitted unless the zoning administrator shall determine whether a materially similar use exists in this chapter.  Should the zoning administrator determine that a materially similar use does exist, the regulations governing that use shall apply to the particular use not listed and the administrator's decision shall be recorded in writing.  Should the zoning administrator determine that a materially similar use does not exist, the matter shall be referred to the planning commission for consideration of the initiation of an application for amendment of the chapter to establish a specific listing for the use in question. 

Urgent Request !!!! The York County Staff recently told the Board of Supervisors that the Citizens have NOT BEEN CALLING to express concern over the new anti-property rights, anti-agriculture, anti-waterman, anti-aquaculture, anti-environment, anti-Bay Zoning Law restrictions...... PLEASE MAKE one short phone call and leave a message................. Call Tim Cross of York County at 890-3496. Tim will give the Supervisors the count of callers that call in to voice their objections. All you have to do is give your name & say that you are against the Zoning Changes being voted on this coming Wednesday night. 

Then, if you can, BE THERE Wednesday night, Nov. 16th, 6:00 PM at York Hall, 301 Main Street, Yorktown, VA 23690, and let your voice be heard!
