A 7:15 p.m. public hearing is set on Monday for a proposed new trade school in Buckingham County.

During the regularly scheduled meeting at the county’s administration complex, county supervisors will hear public comment on The Virginia Keys School of Technology, which, if approved, would be located on 350 acres of property off of New Dominion Lane, according to county documents.

Richard Kingswell, the property owner and president of Learning Independence & Necessary Knowledge, or LINK, has applied for a special use permit from the county to operate the for-profit school. “Until recently, the … property was used as a RV/camping resort. The land itself is covered with trails, forest[s] and ponds,” according to the permit application.
