Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors postpones LKQ facility hearing

FLUVANNA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors pushed back a public hearing to consider a special use permit for a proposed car recycling facility during a meeting Wednesday night.

The board voted unanimously to move the hearing to next week due to the weather.

Supervisors said they'd like to give everyone a chance to come if they couldn't make it because of the snow.

Many people left the meeting shortly after the vote was made, including Katie Ward, a landowner in Fluvanna County.

She said she drove two hours to attend the meeting and wasn't too happy with the decision.

"I just want this all behind us and now we have to wait another week," she said. "The other representatives weren't here, the LKQ representative wasn't here, the KP development rep wasn't here, the planner wasn't here. It's just a little frustrating that we could all make it here and now it's being deferred."

Ward said she started a petition to appeal the special use permit.

She said she's not giving up on this until a decision is made.

"We're in it as long as it takes," said Ward. "We want to see it to the end, whatever the outcomes is."

The board was also supposed to vote on whether or not to approve the special use permit.

The Fluvanna County Planning Commission recommended moving forward with the permit during a meeting on March 13.

The hearing will be held on March 28 at 7 p.m.
