It makes you wonder if the new owners of this property didnt have this planed the whole time. Buy the land, let the county board go through what it had to, and then, Oh yes I think we will donate this land to the state for a park. Tax credits(cash) galore. Slick!

Albermarle county has never took in the whole picture from any developer. Look at the famous Hollymead Towne Center "Moon Scape". First the developer buy the property, makes all kinds of promises, then strips the land of every living thing and then DENIES that there is any run off into the HM and FLST communities ponds and lakes. Causes a sink whole in 29 because he does not lay any drainage just slaps some asphalt on top of the cut in. Then he has the communities fight for years to get help for their wet lands. Now the county is considering letting the same developer build a bridge and road from the Double Tree/Sam's area up to his "Moon Scape". We need soccer fields, a county long course and indoor pool, lacrosse fields, playgrounds but the county is too busy courting the developers to really see that we don't need another bank, or retail space. How much retail is empty now? Leave the state park alone and let the BOS have that mess up their legacy. Oh and by the way does anyone remember the weekend flight and overnight to view the facility similar to Biscuit run that the BOS took, what a joke.
