VA Lawmaker: ‘Downzoning’ Undercuts Property Rights

Kenric Ward,

VA State Delegate Brenda Pogge says “politics, not sound commonsense” are driving an Eastern Shore county campaign to zone out agricultural activities. “Downzoning always results in a loss of property rights, and we may be looking at 5,000 to 7,000 citizens losing freedoms that they already enjoy,” Pogge said.
