Regulating wood burning fireplaces in certain localities.In any locality with a population density of greater than 1,000 persons per square mile, the locality may by ordinance regulate the use of wood burning fireplaces in any portion of the locality where such use may constitute a nuisance to adjacent residences.  Such ordinance shall not apply to any dwelling that does not have an adequate source of heat without burning wood.See the bill at Richmond Sunlight….  Consider also that the data is from the 2000 Census and Virginia’s population has increased by more than 630,000 citizens since then.”Virginia is increasingly becoming an urban state.  The combined population living in Northern Virginia, Richmond and Tidewater is now at 5.3 million, or roughly seven out of 10 Virginians,” Spar said.There is a reason they say that no one is safe when the General Assembly is in session.Link to the map at GeoCommons.Huge thanks to Bill at GeoCommons.
