Conversations about Reversion

There are many questions, misconceptions and misinformation about the reversion process floating around our community. Martinsville City Council wishes to engage our citizens in a conversation about the process, to answer questions, and to clear up the false information. These conversations will consist of a brief introduction followed by an informal conversation with questions and answers. Council members and members of city staff will be present. The sessions will last for one hour. To ensure both an informal atmosphere and an opportunity for citizens to be heard, and to maintain health safety, these sessions will require pre-registration by name and address, and will be limited to one dozen citizen participants for each session.


Any citizen wishing to register to attend a session may do so by contacting Karen Roberts, Clerk of Council, at , calling 276-403-5182 or faxing 276-403-5280.


Registration must be made by noon the day before each session, and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Preference will be given to citizens of the City.  All sessions will be televised on MGTV-21 and linked on the City website and social media. The sessions are all in Council Chambers, 55 East Church Street, second floor, as follows:
