The citizens of Abingdon first learned about the Abingdon Business Park in January 2019 when a barely legible public notice appeared in the brush along Abingdon Road. We have been vehemently opposing the project ever since. We learned that the 326 wooded acres known as Abingdon Woods were zoned CI (Commercial/Industrial) in 1982. Abingdon Woods has non-tidal wetlands, a 100-year flood plain and the Ha-Ha Branch, which feeds Otter Point Creek, which feeds the Bush River, which feeds the Chesapeake Bay.
