Still awaiting notice of location for hearing on Meadow Creek Parkway case in Charlottesville Circuit Court
On May 19 at 2:00 pm, Judge Jay Swett will preside in considering the claim by the Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park and several individually named plaintiffs that right of way for the Meadow Creek Parkway north of Melbourne Road land owned by the City of Charlottesville was illegally transferred to the Virginia Department of Transportation. I have no knowledge of where this case is to be heard and it is now but three days away. When I know where this hearing is to take place I will post it here. The Charlottesville Circuit Court was not available when the trial date was set and a court room was to be found for this hearing. I hope one is identified soon and interested members of the community will be able to attend the hearing. If you do not see any announcements as to where the hearing will occur, check with the circuit court by telephone at 434/970-3766.
