Upriver crossing returns to Gloucester agenda

The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors will again discuss the possibility of an upriver crossing of the York River during its meeting Tuesday night, beginning at 7 o’clock in the colonial courthouse.

Gloucester resident Charles Records, with a background in engineering and development, pitched the idea earlier this month to members of the Gloucester supervisors in hopes the governing body would approve his moving forward with a feasibility study.

Though most of the supervisors agreed with moving forward with the study, which would come at no cost to the county, board members had asked for the county administrator to check with county staff make sure it would have extra time if needed to provide information to aid in the work.

Supervisors are expected to hear that report Tuesday night.

Other matters on Tuesday night’s agenda include a proposed change in the scope of a Virginia Department of Transportation project for Burleigh Road; a discussion of a Perrin River commercial seafood harbor master plan; a discussion of the county’s legislative priorities for the 2013 Virginia General Assembly session, and a discussion about the possibility of a real estate tax relief plan for "green" buildings.
