Greene County Zoning Audit and Webinars

Greene County is seeking public input regarding updating the zoning ordinance

Zoning Audit – Zoning Revisions

A need to revise the Greene County Zoning Ordinance has been identified by local citizens during the public meetings and workshops held during the Greene County Comprehensive Plan and the Ruckersville Area Plan.  

“Create a sense of place in Ruckersville through citizen-driven community planning that includes improvement of transportation, utility, and land use tools. Ruckersville will support diverse employment and housing opportunities that allow people to live, work and shop in Ruckersville while attracting others’ participation in the local economy”

Staff has created a series of three short webinars to explain current conditions, the community goals and potential ways to revise the zoning regulations to support the goals.  The main purpose of each webinar is to create dialog and receive feedback and input.  Please take a moment to review and provide comments.

Collecting this data is the first step and will help us create the foundation for revising the zoning ordinance in a local, community driven plan for Greene.

Greene Water & Sewer Bills to be Reissued

Greene County is aware there are significant issues impacting some of the latest bills customers received from Greene County Water & Sewer Department. The County Administration is working with the department to add resources to review all the bills and make corrections. Customers can disregard their bills at this time. For those who wish to pay their September bills, the money will remain as a credit on their accounts until a reissued bill can be distributed.

“This is a new department that is still in a period of transition from the former water authority. During the startup of the new department, we’ve experienced several expected and unexpected challenges, including hiring and training new staff, bringing new software online, making necessary repairs, and documenting meter locations. We appreciate everyone’s patience with the process,” said County Administrator Cathy Schafrik.
