Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors votes to approve 580-acre housing project

PITTSYLVANIA CO., Va, – The Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors voted to approve a housing project at Tuesday’s board meeting.

Now, the county can move forward with rezoning for a new master-planned community.

The project will create around 1,900 homes on about 580 acres in Axton.

Not everyone was in favor of the development.

Some residents wore shirts in opposition to the approval reading: “MUD” with a slash through it – indicating they are against the multi-use-development.

“I want our county to grow. I want our children to stay here. I want them to go to college and come back and work for a major corporation located at a little place in Berryhill. That’s to me what this is all about,” Board member William Ingram said.

With this approval, the board said that the pros outweigh the cons and this development will be beneficial to the growth of the community.
