NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED BOUNDARY

THE COUNTY OF NORTHAMPTON AND THE TOWN OF EASTVILLE
Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Section 15.2-3107 of the Code of Virginia (1950), as amended, that the Board of Supervisors of Northampton County, Virginia (“Board of Supervisors”) and the Town Council of the Town Of Eastville, Virginia (“Town Council”) (together, “Parties”), will hold a joint public hearing on a proposed Boundary Line Adjustment Agreement Between The County Of Northampton And The Town Of Eastville (“Agreement”). Following the public hearing, the Board of Supervisors and the Town Council each intend to adopt a resolution approving the Agreement. The public hearing and meeting at which each governing body intends to take such action will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, in the Board Room of the County Administration Building, 16404 Courthouse Road, Eastville, Virginia.
The Agreement is authorized by Section 15.2-3106 et seq. of the Code of Virginia (1950), as amended, and provides that the Town’s boundary line will be voluntarily adjusted (i) by incorporating into the Town all or portions of 150 parcels of land and adjacent public roads and rights-of-way that currently lie within the unincorporated portion of the County and (ii) by relocating from the Town into the unincorporated portion of the County two parcels of land. A survey plat attached to the Agreement depicts the modified boundary line of the Town as proposed by the Board of Supervisors and the Town Council.
The territory to be incorporated into the Town consists of four areas. One area lies to the north of the existing boundary of the Town and includes parcels along Selma Estates, Church Street, and Fox Court and ending with the Peirson property. A second area lies to the south of the existing boundary of the Town and includes the parcels ending north of the properties along Stump Town Drive. A third area lies to the east of the existing boundary of the Town and includes the parcels lying east of Canonie Atlantic Co., and along Rockefellow Lane and Station Lane. A fourth area lies to the northeast of the existing boundary of the Town and includes the parcels of E. Garrison Drummond and Douglas and Audrey Coburn.
The two parcels to be relocated from the Town into the unincorporated portion of the County lie within the Town along its existing southeastern boundary and include the parcels of Eastern Shore Associates, II and Robert P. Nottingham.
The proposed Agreement provides that the Parties, after approving the Agreement, shall promptly petition the Circuit Court of Northampton County to relocate and establish the boundary line as agreed upon, and that the new boundary line shall become effective at midnight on June 30, 2017. In the event a final court order has not been entered by that date, the new boundary line shall become effective at midnight on December 31st or at midnight on June 30th following entry of the final court order, whichever date occurs first. The Agreement further provides that the Board of Supervisors and the Town Council shall each bear one-half of the costs of newspaper publication.
