The controversial proposed development that rocked Fluvanna County, known first as Walker’s Ridge and then as Poplar Ridge, is officially over.
The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors approved Feb. 15 a request by the land’s owner, Hotel Street Capital, LLC, to put its 232 acres into a conservation easement.
“The effect of this [conservation easement] is to restrict land in perpetuity,” said County Attorney Fred Payne. “It’s a serious step.”
The land sits primarily on the western side of Route 15 at its intersection with Route 644 near Palmyra, adjacent to Camp Friendship.Add a comment
