When the Community Works Together, We Can Do Great Things!

A Community Discussion - Thank you for your ideas and thoughts ~

We are building our "Pros and Cons" page.  Send us your pros and/or cons and help us build a more educational page!  Any other suggestions?

In the meantime, a 2nd Alternative Option has been introduced to the discussion:  If and only if the project receives private funding to bury power lines and can be done WITHOUT NARROWING Main Street from its current 40 ft width curb-to-curb, proceed if community's feedback is incorporated. 

Scroll down to see 1st Alternative Option, below . . . .


This site is to create a safe space for respectful dialog and helpful information as part of our civil discourse and problem-solving.  Since many with an alternative view have not felt they have had a voice nor have been part of the discussion, this site was birthed.  We encourage all views and greatly appreciate how polite and thoughtful all your comments have been.  Thanks for sharing!

Scroll all the way down to read an Alternative Plan and become part of the discussion by submitting your vote and comments.

A few key points

Who We Are

Marshall is neither Middleburg nor Warrenton.  We are a rural agricultural working community with great local restaurants and shops.  Let's continue to coexist that way.  That's part of our charm!

Wide Streets

Let's leave the streets wide and let VDOT repave, as they have been waiting to do.  Marshall is growing.  Now is not the time to narrow Main Street.  Wider streets allow greater margins of safety in Marshall.

When The Time Is Right

Let the $5 million project go.  Instead, use cost- and time-efficient ways to beautify Main Street.  Repair sidewalks if necessary, not replace.  Start now to research sensible ways to underground power lines in the future.

At the September 2018 public presentation on the County's design plans for the Marshall Main St. Improvement Project, the majority of citizens were against it. We have put together common sentiments that many expressed they would like to see for Main Street.

Please let us know if you prefer the County's Marshall Main St. Improvement Project or Alternative Options we've put together based on citizen feedback.
