Our first combo meeting, in-person and virtual, went well overall. Thank all of you participating. The people calling in were able to hear the speakers except for when questions were asked. Tim did a very nice job of repeating the question so callers could hear. Connection with the host was lost once for a short period of time. Overall, we consider this one a success.
We will plan on doing the next meeting, August 9, 2020, in the same manner – provided the COVID19 restrictions do not change.
GREEN RIDGE’S DEMOGRAPHICS REPORT
Last week Green Ridge released a demographics report on the proposed landfill area. The report is currently under review by the Leadership Team, legal counsel, and independent experts. The report is attached if you would like to read it or you can find it Green Ridge’s website. You may find it interesting.
NOTICE OF INTENT (NOI) — TAKE TWO
A brief history on the NOI so you can follow the sequence of events. Green Ridge filed the NOI in January 2020. DEQ reviewed the application and sent a letter to Green Ridge in March 2020 stating they had found the application to be “administratively incomplete” and requested additional information. Draper Aden prepared a response to DEQ for Green Ridge. This letter was sent to DEQ in April 2020. Then on July 1, 2020, DEQ sent another letter to Green Ridge and for the second time found the NOI to be “administratively incomplete”. Green Ridge now has 60 days to respond to the second DEQ letter. Please take a couple of minutes and read this letter. If after reading the letter you have questions or concerns; e-mail, call, or mail a letter to DEQ. Their contact information can be found at https://www.deq.virginia.gov/Programs/LandProtectionRevitalizaton/PermittingCompliance/GreenRidge.aspx.
