This would also not allow us to fill in old livestock ponds no longer needed tomaryleigh.mcdaniel@ fauquiercounty gov make a better mre productive use of that area which up until now we hadaby Rick Gerhardt in the Cedar Run District of the Board, Christopher Butler in the Lee District chris.butler Vice Chair in the Marshall District ht use of our land to do with what we saw fit and suited us. Now the county wants to step in and regulate what we can do with our own property which as previously stated, is a by-right use and take that away from us and require tormwater management plans and engineered erosion and sediment control a Chris Granger in the Center District; or Holder Trumbo in the Scott District holder.trumbo; as well as our County Administrator Paul hat is going to be next?Ho many rows of co you can grow in one yecCulla paul.mcculla@ or your Virginia Delegate Mike How many yards of sod you can harvest in one year?
