Gloucester, VA Free County Poster - Leading By Example Breaking County Ordinances

Creative Commons License
Gloucester, Virginia County Ordinances by Chuck Thompson of TTC Media is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License.  This link will take you to Gloucester County Ordinance Section 6 and you will want to view 6A-7 Landscaping.  There you will see what the requirements are for any commercial property along route 17 that must be met in order to be in compliance with this ordinance.

  What makes this poster satirical and funny, (based on your sense of humor of course), is that the building in the above picture is a county owned garage along route 17 and does not meet the counties own compliance standards.  That's the county leading by example.  Everyone else has to meet the county code ordinances so why isn't the county setting the example of what they expect everyone else to follow?

  You are free to print this poster out, makes all the copies you want, share it with others, sell copies, make T-Shirts from it if you want, use it in print even commercially, no royalties or payments need to be made at any time.  Use it on your own web site.  Have a blast with it.

Download the full size version here pre sized at 17x22.  Smaller prints will work as well.

  1. This hardly seems fair. The County should follow their own rules. When was the property developed? When were the highway district regulations enacted? Do the regulations apply to all properties or only properties when they are redeveloped or repurchased?

  2. Good comment. The rules require the improvements to be made if changes/improvements are made to the property. I watched changes being made to this property at the same time as businesses in Hayes. Those businesses had to meet the rules and the county basically said do as I say and not as I do.

    The rules were in place when the county made the modifications, business owners told me about what they had to do while watching the county ignore the rules.
