Developer Sues County

United Land Corp. owner Wendell Wood has filed suit against Albemarle County’s Board of Supervisors after they rejected Home Depot‘s bid to build a 130,000 square-foot store on his land. The Board’s rejection of the planned construction was popular among anti-sprawl groups in the area. (Though it was rejected for environmental concerns.) Last June, Wood made #65 on Virginia Business’ “The Virginia 100” list of the state’s wealthiest and most powerful people. Wednesday’s Daily Progress is the source of this story.

  1. Hmm. What are the grounds of his suit? Is he just sore that he won’t get a big fat wad of cash, or is there something else? I’m generally opposed to this sort of development, but I’d like to know the whole story for this one.

  2. Sorry, but the Progress doesn’t archive their old news, stupidly. That gave the relevant details, but that doesn’t do us much good here and now. :)
