If you haven’t heard yet, chances are, you will: backyard chickens are now allowed in Blacksburg. A committed contingent has lobbied for years and is finally seeing an ordinance passed, Ordinance 1888.
Snow is on the way for the New River Valley, and Montgomery County Public Schools Big Tweeter Mark Miear posted a helpful infographic of how MCPS reviews conditions, and determines school closures. I thought I’d post it here – I don’t have any details on other counties in the region, but I have to imagine they follow similar protocols.

It’s a statistical look at what’s happening in the New River Valley real estate market, and it’s put out every quarter. Visually, it’s stunning – thanks to the amazing folks in our Marketing Department, the lead generation is looking better every day.
