October 19, 2015- Louisa County Board of Supervisors approved a conditional use permit to allow the open pit mining of vermiculite
in the Green Springs National Historic Landmark District.
The applicant for the zoning change is admired community wide as a good man.
The mining company has, in the past, done award-winning reclamation of a mining site.

So… What the hay?

The highlights of the decision to grant the CUP are on the web.
To cover the subtleties, the principal actors, the hard choices, the layers of compromise,
thousands of words and a fearless newspaper would be required.
The Louisa Comprehensive Plan executive statement, vision and goals recognize the national significance of the Green Springs district.
The Louisa County zoning code allows for the refusal of a CUP if it is not compatible with the surrounding area.

But what the hay.
