The 2015 crime statistics for Fluvanna County are out.

Every year, the Virginia State Police (VSP) compiles a list of arrests broken down by county. In 2015, 223 people were arrested in Fluvanna. Of that total, 208 were adults and 15 were children.

Not all crimes are considered equal. The VSP breaks crimes into two groups: group A, which includes violent crimes such as murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, and group B, which includes non-violent crimes such as trespassing, disorderly conduct, bad checks, and liquor law violations resulting in an arrest.

Residents band together to upgrade roads

After years of waiting, the residents of Taylor Ridge Estates and Cunningham Meadows subdivisions on Rt. 53 will have their roads brought into the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) state system.

The news comes as a relief to some residents of Taylor Ridge who have tried for years to find the party responsible for completing the job of having the roads turned over to the state. Several of them have said publicly that they were assured when they bought their homes that the roads would shortly become a part of the state system – but that never occurred.

So with no one to turn to, the residents of Taylor Ridge banded together and made it happen by themselves.
