This section of land along Dow
Street has been proposed as one of five
entrances into the new development on
the old Harkrader farms.

That move would easily increase
traffic, and folks here are worried
about the neighborhood children.

Although town council will not
keep the developer from building,
members have discussed the potential
problem of increased traffic along the
Street.

A vote for final approval is

In a four to one vote, the

subdivision that will include about 29
houses most likely priced between
500-thousand and one million dollars.

The planning commission voted
against the project but supervisors did
not agree... addressing concerns taxes
could go up but arguing that also means
property values go up.

But the main reason most
supervisors voted yes was they believe
the developer took precautions to
ensure open space, preserving the

yesterday that he asked the Social
Security office in Lynchburg to call

Childress told local auditors to
"keep it low key and 'routine,' " so
Hutcherson wouldn't realize he was
being investigated.

Hutcherson's lawyers called it a
government "sting" operation.

The judge said he doubts such
evidence is admissible.

concluded "fraud was not an issue," the

decide.
