More than 100 people came out Thursday night to talk about the rezoning of 103 acres of farmland for new homes. The Rockingham County Board of Supervisors tabled the issue in June to study what impact the development might have on traffic and schools.
A majority of the people at the town meeting showed opposition to the development. But some say growth is a good thing.
ReMax Realtor Larry Martin says, "We are very fortunate to be in a growth area and we need to do it sensibly. I think the county is moving in that direction."
The county is spending $35,000 over the next year on their growth study.
