Local preservation organization ACORN recommends a NO vote for Ballot Question #3, stating that the that proposed changes discourage renovation/preservation and place an increased tax burden on existing homeowners.

Proposed amendment #3 says:

Shall Section 6 of Article X of the Constitution of Virginia be amended to authorize legislation to permit localities to provide a partial exemption from real property taxes for real estate with new structures and improvements in conservation, redevelopment, or rehabilitation areas?
