PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Legislative Committee of the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors will hold a meeting regarding the limiting of solar projects.

A meeting is scheduled at 5 p.m. for Tuesday, Oct. 5, where the committee will discuss different options for limiting solar development across the county.

This decision comes after a public hearing about solar development and revisions was pushed back to a later date. The Community Development, Commissioner of Revenue, and the Board of Supervisors want to look into different taxation options for these projects.

There are also several zoning ordinances across the county, which include limits to where solar can be developed, decommissioning bond requirements, and setback and buffer regulations. The committee will also look into these requirements and regulations for solar projects for several months.

Also on the agenda, revisions to the music festival ordinance. The committee is looking into changing the structure of the ordinance so the threshold for regulations is based on the number of attendees instead of the hours of amplified music.

The committee is expected to meet at the main conference room in the County Administration Building in Chatham.
