Another event and wedding venue proposed for the Cherrystone community was denied by the Northampton County Board of Supervisors.
Supervisors’ concerns centered around the venue being in too close proximity to other residents. The additional noise and traffic would have an overall adverse effect on the neighborhood.
The location, called Huntington Farm, was proposed to host 40 weddings and events annually. The county’s Planning Commissions approved a permit for the venue last week.
The applicant’s attorney Andre Wiggins, told the Supervisors that the owners of the property agreed to limit events to 200 people.
“This is not economic development…This is neighborhood destruction,” said Supervisor John Coker.
