Ebony is located in southern Brunswick County, VA - en route to Lake Gaston from I-85
Brunswick County Rezoning Case 19-32 seeks to rezone a portion of 8.36 acres (TM #98-10) within an A-1 Agricultural District to B-1 Business, in order for Dollar General to build a store in the heart of the historic community of Ebony, Virginia.. While there may be appropriate places for Dollar General, even in Brunswick County, the Ebony community is simply NOT one.
Our opposition platform for Case 19-32 encompasses these points:
Our position of opposition is in complete alignment with current Zoning Ordinances in Brunswick County for A-1 Agricultural District Zoning (Article 4) and B-1 Business District Zoning (Article 9). Learn more.
Our position of opposition is in complete alignment with the Board of Supervisors Vision for 2035. This Board of Supervisors vision highlights retaining its "highly valued rural character" and pursuit of "unlimited tourism and recreational opportunities" that capitalize on our natural resources, rural scenic beauty, and quality of life.

Our position is also tightly aligned with the four key themes reflected in the Brunswick County Comprehensive Plan 2037. These themes are: Dynamic Economic Growth (the right kind of business in the right place), Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Communities, and Preserved Heritage. Learn more.
