Matthews Buys Kluge/UVa Land

Dave Matthews is now one of the county’s biggest landowners — he’s spent $5.3M to buy 1,261 acres of the 7,379 acres that local billionaire John Kluge donated to the University last May. UVa is selling off much of the land to fund the eventual development of the core of the property, and there were concerns that the land could be purchased by a developer. Matthews has announced that he intends to preserve farming and forest lands on his five new farms, and will place an open-space easement on the farms. Eric Swensen has the story in today’s Progress.
