Debate Over Sperry Property

The Progress reports that City Council debated the impact of the proposed development of the Sperry Marine property at the 29/Hydraulic intersection. An out-of-state deveoper wants to put in a big theater, some stores, a hotel, and apparently some residences, too. Though development of the property fits into the plans to develop Charlottesville’s urban ring, county supervisors and city councilors dislike the “big-box” stores that would be constructed. Councilor Maurice Cox expressed concerned about traffic, as existing roads would likely be unable to handle the load. Councilor Kevin Lynch, never shy about such things, said that the planned development was “exactly wrong.”
