Charlottesville and Albemarle, certified business killers.

When you enter some counties, you see a sign that says "Certified Business Location."

Here, it needs to be posted at the county line that you are entering the "Certified Business Killer."

No business, big or small, is safe here.

No, you're attacking the messenger rather than the message.

Typically that would suggest you are struggling to find fault with your opponent's reasoning so resort to attacking the opponent. That your best attack is name calling tells us a great deal.

Sticks and stones...

I obviously had no problem finding fault with your reasoning. Look back at the posts. Though I do find it amusing the left wing extremists like Foo and Ron can use name calling and personnal bashing and think it is just fine but when it is used against them they feel it is wrong. Does the left wing ever get tired of being hypocrites? We need more independents in government lets do away with the left and the right once and for all!!! Maybe then businesses will want to stay in Charlottesville and pay taxes here?!

Pretty sure Obama is bushs third term, with a twist of socialism of course. If you seriously think Obama has nothing to do with the economy, you sir/ma'am, for the lack of a better term, are an idiot.

You can blame anyone you want.
But the fact is, it happened!

Businesses have been leaving the city limits of Charlottesville for 30 years.

Are YOU going to do anything about it?:)

I've lived in Charlottesville for over 40 years.
Well, to be honest, the downtown mall is still a
big zero to me. I go in to the movie theatre, with it's 6 theatres, and I'm often the only person
in the theatres. The mall is full of horrible-looking old buildings. Now we have that abandoned tower that Halsey Minor has stuck the city with.

Will the city ever been a ghost-town as far as businesses go? Well, you have Barracks Road, and you have The Corner.

What would Barracks Road be without Harris-Teeter! It would be in big, big, big trouble! The UVa students keep that going.

As for The Corner, the restaurants come and go fast due to the recession.

The city is not healthy, business-wise, let's put it that way.

Charlottesville has quickly become a small town with big city problems. Like most East Coast big cities, it is separating into combat zones and the nice neighborhoods. The problem is that two of the main cultural centers of Cville, the Downtown Mall and The Corner, are no longer safe. Similarly, Fashion Square Mall is no longer safe, and so the sprawl continues to expand North of town, and businesses will continue to leave the combat zones for safer, likely rural areas (due to land costs, taxes, zoning, and obstructionist government in Cville).
