Wegman’s in Virginia Faces Legal Challenges

05/19/2023

A partly completed distribution center in Hanover County, VA was the subject of a ruling by the Supreme County of Virginia favoring opponents of the project. The distribution center was approved in May 2020 and was granted tax credits and state incentives amounting to $2 million.

 

The plaintiffs comprising homeowners near the site contend that the decision to grant approval violated local ordinances and that the project would “destroy wetlands, cause major traffic congestion and create noise and light pollution”.

 

The decision of the Supreme Court of Virginia sends the case back to a lower court for review.  The distribution center was due to commence operation during the summer of 2023 and planned to employ 700.
