In order to promote all of the positives about life in Fluvanna, some members of the community have joined with county officials in launching an I Love Fluvanna marketing campaign. As part of this effort, several members of the Fluvanna community agreed to answer two questions about their county: What is your favorite thing about Fluvanna? And what is the main improvement you want for the county?

What I love most about Fluvanna is the beauty of the landscape, the laid back rural lifestyle and our uniquely old-fashioned appeal. Most importantly, what sets Fluvanna apart is our people. Whether around your home, at the grocery store or out for a stroll, you’re always amongst close friends. There are many places people can call home, but only one place you can call yourself a Fluco.Improvement
The key to Fluvanna’s future is a vibrant and resilient economy to bolster opportunity, safe and healthy neighborhoods, and top-notched educational systems. There is a dire need for tax base diversity and the infrastructure to sustain responsible growth without sacrificing our country charm.Mozell Booker, Fork Union supervisor and Board chairFavorite

We need more revenue to take the tax burden off of our citizens. Economic development is the answer. We are going to make this happen.Sheriff Eric Hess, candidate for sheriffFavorite
My favorite thing about Fluvanna is our strong sense of community. The people make it special. Their generosity, concern for the less fortunate, and willingness to share of themselves – be it through churches, schools or non-profits like Meals on Wheels – all contribute to what makes Fluvanna culturally diverse and great. My favorite place in the county is Pleasant Grove Park.Improvement
I would love to see water and sewer infrastructure built so that new businesses and jobs can develop and grow in our community. With more job opportunities, our young people can stay here and work locally.
