In March 2004 Cities Ranked and Rated listed Charlottesville VA as the best place in the US to live.
The ranking was questionable but with the announcement damage was done.
The greed on display in this region now is staggering, breath-taking.
My neighborhood, the red-headed step-child of local planners, is taking a beating.
This has been a low density rural neighborhood since the establishment of the woolen mill village in 1830.
Currently, within 100 yards of my house, two developers hope to build 40 units. The units don't serve the neighborhood's needs, they don't reflect the neighborhood structure. The proposed growth is cancerous in nature.
Cash in the chips.
