i think it would be great if they could get more visitors here in fancy gap they need a fast food restaurant...everyone has to go all the way to exit 14 to get food unless they know about Lakeview Rest. I live out here in fancy gap so i would loveto see more money coming in here we all need more jobs, opportunity, options etc.. around here to lure people in!!!

As much as I am opposed to smaller towns growing up, because I for one love Hillsville being the size it is and hate that the new highway will attract more people to live/build/ruin it, if a couple of restaurants are opened and create jobs, I'm all for it. Really, the nation needs it.

All the people that commeted don't seem to see the beauty in not having major food chains local --local --Keep it simple and country and it will--get more traffic when most people travel the blue ridge their looking for different not the same thing they can get at home. I own a vacation home on Blue ridge and my self dont want to go to Fancy Gap and see what I see in every day life be different..local--Ma and Paw
