I am extremely grateful that the eminent domain amendment to Virginia’s Constitution passed. I’m writing to let my voice be heard. My front lawn along with my Dad’s and brother’s are going to be condemned by the Virginia Department of Transportation, for we do not want to sell our property for a road-widening project.
I feel helpless, and even though I am a landowner, I feel as if I own nothing. A four-lane road is going to be built into the proposed Wildwood Commerce Park in Carroll County where there is nothing.
Felts lives in Austinville.
