Oh how very really Steve!!
Yes, it seems a shame. Have they investigated whether this development will do anything to protect the beach from the awful landslides that Charlottesville has experienced over the last 8-10 years?
Or ... is there anything in the proposals to address the environmental problem.
The North Coast road has been completed at a great cost to the environment but, conversely, to some benefit to Charlottesville in terms of tourism/comms ... have the THA learned to think these projects through yet?
I feel a bit silly saying these things on the forum (because Charlottesville is not my home) but, as Steve says, it is surely up to the folks in Charlottesville to raise these issues.
The point I am asking is ... has this been thought through? Is it just for redevelopment or are there environmental benefits or other benefits to business/residents/safety ... I don't yet see any method behind any madness or any madness behind a method ?!?
If there is any madness going on then some constructive and rational objection would make the THA listen ... surely?
