Through the DC2RVA alternatives development process and related community meetings, DRPT recognized the unique nature of the Town of Ashland and Hanover County, and that many of the alternatives for greater rail capacity in this area generated community concerns. As a result, DRPT recommended to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) a community-based effort to supplement DC2RVA public involvement activities and help inform DRPT's recommendation for a preferred alternative that provides the required rail capacity through the Ashland/Hanover area. As part of the community-based effort, DRPT proposes to establish a community advisory committee (CAC) that will take a more intensive look at all previous options. The CAC could also identify potential new options to meet the purpose and need of the DC2RVA project while minimizing or avoiding any potential impacts of those options.

Historic District Update Community Meeting
In the past year, the Town of Ashland, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and Commonwealth Heritage Group, Inc., has been working to resurvey the existing district to account for Ashland’s history between 1934 and 1966.
There will be 111 additional contributing resources (buildings, sites, objects, and structures) to our historic district! We hope you can attend.
This update would NOT add regulations to prohibit property owners (e.g. painting their house a certain color) or install an architecture review board. It does come with the following benefits:
? Increased federal and state tax credit availability to spur investment in rehabbing historic homes and buildings (e.g. Ashland Theater).
? Improved accounting of Ashland’s post-WWII build-out, civil rights, and massive resistance era history.
? Corrected errors in the original nomination.
? Preservation and protection of Ashland’s small town characte
