Meadowcreek Parkway Lawsuits Planned

Two separate groups are exploring lawsuits to stop the Meadowcreek Parkway, Will Goldsmith writes in the latest C-Ville Weekly. The Sierra Club figures that federal laws protecting parkland and historic sites are enough to mount a challenge, while a group of independent critics accuse the city and the county of circumventing proper environmental review by claiming that the completed project consists of a road that stops in the middle of the park. Nobody’s filed anything yet, but the president of the local chapter of the Sierra Club says that they “plan to use these laws to protect McIntire Park,” which sounds like a clear statement of intent. Lawsuits are about all that could halt the road at this point; it may well be the only road planned in Virginia for which funding exists.
