Do they really think people are going to want to slog up and down Main St. Stanardsville for some clay pots and over priced artisan junk that people will throw out in a year. Stanardsville is DEAD. Build a race track or amusement park/water park, alpine slide, Get rid of pig slop houses they have now and get some decent restaurants. They are trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Have Paris, Florence, and Prague relocated to Greene County? I don't think so.

Are you actually located in Scottsville as indicated under your sign-in name? Just wondering.

I agree with Woodrowski. Do something for the locals and their kids. A choice of better eating establishments would be a great start. Not everyone is into clay pots and the like.

At least 40% of the county budget could be used to buy stupid looking eyesores just like the trash in the medians of Charlottesville!

Greene Co has been and will remain a bedroom county. There is just nothing "downtown" to attract the casual passerby and certainly no valid reason for anyone to make a capital investment there hoping to establish a successful enterprise. Even before the bypass was built the only draw was the gas station, thats it.

Dave Matthews tried years ago..... I know that the people NOW would welcome a Pavillion with an earth Burm. Please, someone go to Greene co. And save them!

A good restaurant closer to qui que and some kind of attraction would do it,
