The vagazette informs MHProNews compassion led the Planning Commission in James City, Virginia to take a step beyond the legal border of the Public Service Area (PSA) and recommend extending sewer service to residents of the Greensprings Mobile Home Park. The two-and-a-half hour meeting saw several of the 80 residents in attendance overwhelmed with emotion as they described their plight of dealing with the failing septic system. Greensprings owner John Franklin is willing to pay $600,000 to run the sewer lines into the community, but a special use permit is required. County planning staff recommended denying the request out of concern for setting a future precedent. The Planning Commission voted unanimously in favor of the permit and rezoning application and sent it on to the Board of Supervisors for review.
