“NOW” NEWS

5/15/24:  After a lovely social before the Annual Meeting, many folks wanted to share recipes – so now there’s a “Recipe Section” down below – check it out!   Send any recipes  you’d like to the Secretary, and they’ll get posted!

As of 5/1/24:  Albemarle County is no longer restricting burning to the hours between 4:00 p.m. and midnight – However,  all fires must be attended, and located more than 300 feet from any occupied structure.  More information about the restrictions can be found here.  Also available are the general guidelines for open-air burning in Albemarle.   The web-based Google Earth app has measuring tools which might be informative.

As of April 2, 2024, Firefly lists their planned date to deliver fiber broadband to our area (we are in their “Windrift” project area) by Spring, 2025.  They carefully note that spring goes to June 20, 2025, and that their connections will BEGIN then.  See “Albemarle Map” [https://www.fireflyva.com/partners-albemarle/] for their construction map and the “Construction Plans” [https://www.fireflyva.com/construction-updates/] for the construction plans.  To pre-register for Firefly (which should get you on the list for announcements about getting hooked up when they come to our area) go to https://register.fireflyva.com/.
