Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park Still Awaiting Circuit Court Decision

Today marks four weeks since the Charlottesville Circuit Court hearing on the constitutionality of Charlottesville granting permanent and temporary easements to Virginia Dept. of Transportation for construction of the Meadow Creek Parkway in Albemarle County. No deadline for a decision by presiding judge Jay Swett, but in light of the City of Charlottesville considering future decisions relating to the McIntire Road Extended and Route 250 Bypass Interchange at McIntire Road projects I am hoping a decision will be available soon.

To learn more about McIntire Park and how it will be impacted by proposed roadway projects, come to McIntire Park on Wednesday, June 17 (Pavilion 1) at 5:30 for a picnic and music and information extravaganza. For more information see below:
