The Wythe County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Tuesday, January 24, 2023 at 6 p.m. or as soon thereafter as practical in the Board of Supervisors Meeting Room, 340 South Sixth Street, Wytheville, Va., 24382.

The public hearing is open to comment on an ordinance establishing the Orion Drive Transportation Service District in the Fort Chiswell District. Four property owners have petitioned the county to create the Service District in order to establish approximately 0.15 miles of Orion Drive as a paved public secondary road.

The district would be created on an equal-share basis with each petitioner responsible for one-quarter of all annual costs related to construction, utility relocation and administrative costs of the district. Half of the construction cost would be paid by the Virginia Department of Transportation local assistance revenue sharing funds.

The public may comment in person at the public hearing or submit written responses to County Clerk Martha Collins at the address above or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
