Pittsylvania County

Hear from Pittsylvania County Community Development Director Emily Ragsdale about what the Community Development department oversees. She talks specifically about zoning and building permits, two departments that protect property owners in different ways: zoning guides what types of development can occur in what location, ensuring that a commercial facility can't pop up in the middle of a neighborhood, while building permits is all about making sure that qualified people are doing sound work. 

This episode also features a recap of some of the highlights of the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors meeting on April 20, which included passing a resolution to put a 1% sales tax referendum on the ballot, creating a summer youth internship program, and supporting the renaming of a bridge after the late William Pritchett, the first Black man to serve on the Board of Supervisors and the first elected official for the Banister District.
