Hoehns Lakeview Farms

A battle is occurring in Henrico County Virginia between legacy property rights of Hoehns Lakeview Farms and expansion of the Islamic Center of Richmond (ICR). This battle is not about freedom to worship protected under the First Amendment or federal laws granting exemption waivers from local land zoning laws. Instead it is about abuse of the courts through lawfare to lay claim to property and property rights through adverse possession - civil disputes, harassment and intimidation.

Donations used to protect the property rights of Hoehns Lakeview Farms, founded as a Quaker farm in 1838.


Details of Civil Complaints: Filed in November of 2013, plaintiff Yunus Vohra who describes himself as a spokesperson for ICR filed a civil complaint which attempt to side-step requirements of VA Code 55-50.1 which requires a consensus agreement to merge ‘property rights’ of private road Hoehns into Vohra’s proposed residential project Hungary Road Village.

In January of 2014, Vohra filed a more extensive format commonly refer to as a SLAPP suit. A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. Typically SLAPP plaintiffs do not expect to win the lawsuit; and, in fact, the plaintiff's goals are accomplished when a defendant succumbs to fear, intimidation, mounting legal costs or simple exhaustion and abandons the criticism (and/or ownership of his/her property/property rights).

Nevertheless, it is the testimony of Henrico County Commonwealth Attorney Shannon Taylor and others associated with the County, “the County is operating under a ‘sensitivity ruling’ RLUIPA which influences enforcement of local laws and regulations” that has influenced a jury to view ‘legacy property rights’ as secondary to Islamic entitlement.

In 2012 a plan of development (POD) was issued for development of ICR’s Mosque located at 8481 Hungary Road. This agreement was violated within one week; and to date, the County fails to enforce agreements which protect those who reside in Hoehns Lakeview Farms. Similarly, in 2014, a rezoning was approved for Vohra’s proposed Hungary Road Village. It also does not comply with state of Virginia code requirements which protect the rights of Hoehns Lakeview Farms residents. And, in fact, since 2011, multiple complaints of assault and property damage have been filed by residents.  All of which were ignored by those who have pledged to ‘protect and serve’ the public.

Vohra who brought legal complaints without benefit of insurable rights continues his lawfare, wage of legal assault against defendant Sylvia Hoehns Wright and her insurer.  As a response, Wright is soliciting support for pending federal level legislation HR 2304, Free Speech Act of 2015; and is also involved in establishing for the state of Virginia an antiSLAPP effort spear headed by Christopher Peace, member VA House of Delegates.  

Sylvia Hoehns Wright credits the legacy of a rural Virginia childhood and Quaker lifestyle belief - view self as caretaker, not owner of property – as the source of her commitment to being a present-day caretaker for her family's 7th generational properties.

Still, she and her family have been under siege since 2011.  As a result of this experience, Wright urges all to

1.            Selectively use rights to vote to ensure the election of people who value constitutional rights.

2.            Lobby for agency functions that monitor enforcement of local government plan of development agreements, proffers and/or compliance of VA Code requirements – there is presently such a function for those who violate ‘fair housing’ laws.

3.            Lobby for land use processes that require ‘clear title’ of properties prior to approval for land use development. 

4.            Ensure there is a ‘next level’ of law enforcement available when local structures fail to prevent ‘breaches of peace’  – no person should receive written notice from governmental representatives that he/she can defend his/her own rights.

5.            Become involved in supporting much needed antiSLAPP legislation which would enable the ability to resolve lawsuits intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.

Trespass by those associated with the 8481 Hungary Road Mosque located in Glen Allen VA April 2018 – Hoehns Lakeview Farms - reported to VA Fusion Center

Since March 2, 2016 when an Islamic death threat was left on my door step I, Sylvia Hoehns Wright, have experienced solar lights located in my yard at 9363 Hoehns Road stomp and broken, vehicles associated with the nearby Mosque site charge at me when I attempt to vacate my property through my private road Hoehns, multiple excessive speed ‘drive through’ of my family complex Hoehns Lakeview Farms, a man who persist in an effort to ‘short cut’ through our community to access his home, repeated ‘no trespassing’ activities from residents of a rental property located at 8415 Hungary Road, been exposed to members of the local Mosque who urinate behind our private road entrance gates located between properties 8415 and 8481 Hungary Road; and specifically after an event in June of 2017 when a young man was disorderly, requested police patrol for my community Hoehns Lakeview Farms.

The purpose of this notification is to document two (2) events which occurred during April of 2018.

On Saturday April 7 at approximately 10 p.m. the residents of 9400 Hoehns Road had a person identify himself as associated with the Hungary Road Mosque solicit their assistance alleging ‘he was lost’. Waiting until the person dressed in Islamic clothing walked away from their front door, the residents open the door to their residence. The affected residents recognized this person as an individual who is frequently seen on the Mosque 8481 Hungary Road property. Appearing to be ‘on foot’, to access 9400 Hoehns Road, the trespasser had walked more than a ½ mile down a private single lane gravel road. Because he was known to be familiar with the nearby Mosque property, his presence was suspicious.

After advising the trespasser to retrace his path to public property, residents dial 911 and solicited Henrico County law enforcement assistance (the call for service is documented as CAD# 793 at 9:57 p.m.). The dispatcher although aware the trespasser identified himself as associated with the Mosque, sent responding officers (1) to 9500 block of Hoehns Road instead of 9400 and (2) to search for a ‘confused person dressed in a robe’.

Residents of the 9500 block aware of the intruder advised officers to go to 9400 Hoehns Road. Made aware of the fact of circumstances, the responding officers first ‘on foot’ searched the property; and then, on the half hour for 2 hours drove through the community complex creating a viable police presence.

On Monday April 30 2018 a community guest who is aware of the community’s trespass issues encountered a vehicle driven by a man dressed in Islamic clothing. The guest monitored the intruder’s activities. Although indicating his intent to vacate the private community, the guest realized this intruder had not followed him out of the complex. So, he returned, located the intruder, advised him he was trespassing; and then, followed the intruder as he vacated the private community. The intruder again alleged ‘he was lost’ yet travelled more than ½ mile within private properties before exiting them.

Hence, as the ‘dominate landowner’ who is directly affected by both of these trespass incidents, I am again requesting police patrol for our community Hoehns Lakeview Farms.

County of Henrico Email Campaign – help recovery the stability of ‘immediate family’ subdivision zoning. To participate,

1 – cut and past the following into an email –
Topic – Att - HC Leadership - request for repeal of 'immediate family' zoning easement requirements
Content - The purpose of this correspondence is to solicit your support/sponsorship for the repeal of 'immediate family' subdivision zoning, Henrico County (HC) Chapter 19 Division 4 Section 19-100, conditions under which ‘family subdivision’ is issued, sections - d & g.
Why - For decades 'immediate family' zoning has enabled 'low density' development of non-public road front historic, agri and open spaced properties.
What - In 2011, Henrico County altered easement access requirements; and effectively terminated the use of 'immediate family' zoning as a land use tool for non public road front property development. As recognized by state of VA code, such properties rarely have dedicated easements which exceeds 8 to 12 feet wide; hence adopting a requirement of a 30 foot easement and prohibitive road installation costs voided use of 'immediate family' zoning within the County; in fact, such constraints not only prohibit expansion of existing but development of new ‘family subdivision’ properties.
How - Without notice to affected landowners, HC altered 'family subdivision' regulation to require significantly larger in width access roads; and installation of more or less a 2 lane paved road; creating a land use burden that most likely will cause remaining properties to fall into the hands of urban suburban development.
Who - Nevertheless, this is local - not state regulation - so, it can be repealed. Presently, the County of Henrico is updating its land use regulation. So, a request of repeal is timey and will recover present-day use of 'immediate family' zoning as a viable land use tool. Your support for this issue is sincerely appreciated. Regards,

Media Release – Wright Scoop Launches Book, Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy.

The Wright Scoop – Sylvia Hoehns Wright - launches book Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy.

“Many communities are stymied by Islamist cultural schemes in concert with political Left’s attacks on citizens who defend American traditions and constitutional principles,” says Karen Lugo, an attorney with extensive experience in First Amendment constitutional law. Such attacks are not about freedom to worship protected under the First Amendment or federal laws granting exemption waivers from local land zoning laws. It is about abuse of the courts through lawfare intended to create Muslim preserves through force majeure, harassment and intimidation.

Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy
Wright’s book - Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy - documents criminal and civil court proceedings more based on a political agenda; then, theology or laws and regulation. As observed by others:
“Protecting religious freedom does not mean permitting people to violate the law in the name of religious freedom. Religious freedom remains freedom to believe, but not a freedom to act in violation of facially neutral laws. For many years people defended racist laws as being required by their religion. But religion should not grant one the right to ignore the law. Jefferson advised us that if a neutral law required action that violated a person’s religious belief that person had to abide by the law. We are a nation of laws after all,” says Christopher Peace, delegate Hanover County for VA General Assembly.
“Any adverse decision reached by a jury trial is not a victory for freedom of religious practice. Instead, it is a victory for lawfare tactics by local Muslim leadership at the Islamic Center of Richmond who seek to create a Sharia compliant enclave at the cost of local residents in Hoehns Lakeview Farms,” says Jerry Gordon, author for New English Review.
“I challenge you to acquire an understanding: learn why a peaceful quiet life-style has changed in Sylvia’s beautiful part of an otherwise crazy world,” says Shu Bartholomew, radio host and producer.

About the Author –
Sylvia Hoehns Wright, the present-day caretaker for her family’s 7th generational property, credits the legacy of a rural Virginia childhood and Quaker lifestyle belief - view self as caretaker, not owner of property as the source of a commitment to protect her family’s generational property.
Presently, the Advocacy for Economic Freedom has joined Wright’s effort to recover and ensure stability of her rights.

I wonder if you could have you homes designated a Quaker settlement? Perhaps that would stop the Muslems from encroaching on a Christian settlement. set your home up as a small Christian Church. That would put them squarely at odds with a Christian place of worship. A nightmare for them and he county.

This road right-of-way easement exist regardless of who owns the underlying land. So, since the easements that comprise private road Hoehns are deed "together with" the property of those who reside in Hoehns Lakeview Farms, the road itself belongs to those who live in the complex. Its use is restricted by deed and VA 'family subdivision' regulation/law which limits present-day use to 'immediate family'. It is the asset/liability, maintenance of residents and they can be held liable for those who trespass. This is why the road is posted and trespass can be enforced.

Some suggestions. ?Cheaper than legal battles? 1] A fence with spikes coming up out of the ground at the base of the fence. Set those spikes in cement so if they hit the fence with a car tire damage will result. ?And maybe a gate at your entrance with a key or wireless remote or access code? 2] Pigs. Begin to keep pigs at the entrance and in the field. I have no money. But hold you in prayer. EPH 6:12
