The coronavirus has necessitated additional changes in our lives over the last week. Frequently washing our hands, keeping a social distance from others, and staying at home except for essential trips are all steps we have to do in order to stop this virus. We may not like them, but it is what is necessary to stop the spread of the virus.
This past week, CCLA sent a letter to DEQ requesting they place a HOLD on processing the Green Ridge/County Waste/GFL Notice of Intent (NOI) and Part A application until the after the pandemic crisis is over and we are back to some type of normal life. Copies of the letter were sent to some State Senators, some State Delegates, and the Cumberland and Powhatan counties Board of Supervisors,and a few others. To date, we have not received an official response to our request. See link below for the entire letter.
CCLA was notified by Cumberland County citizens, of traffic monitoring cables being placed on routes 60, 45, 622, as well as possibly other locations. The Leadership Team is trying to find out the reason behind the placement of the cables. Any information VDOT obtains from the placement of these cables will be inaccurate since we are not living our normal life styles and not traveling as much. We will keep you posted.
CCLA Leadership Team urges everyone to follow the guidelines for fighting this virus – wash your hands frequently and maintain the recommended social distance of 6 feet. Our goal is for everyone to take the necessary precautions, stay healthy and COVID free, and let’s get life back to some type of normal. Looking forward to this pandemic ending and us being able to have our Townhall Community meetings.
