Is there anyone who doesn’t know where the new Quarterpath Shopping Center is Located ?

S. L. Nusbaum wants to make sure you realize that the new Quarterpath Shopping center is there. ( Site of the new Harris Teeter)  I don’t know about you but it seems that everyone who passes by sees it. Have you seen it ?

They have applied to the City of Williamsburg for an exception to the sign ordinance which only allows them a thirty two square foot sign. Instead they would like permission for THREE forty eight square foot signs. Is this really necessary ?

This is the same developer who caused previous controversy in clearing the right of way on Rt 199 in front of the Windsormeade Shopping Center

By the way, it seems everyone was happy with the tree cutting in front of Windsormeade Shopping Center back in March of 2009 except me. VDOT explained that it was done to promote the health of the trees. Somehow the woods behind my house are very healthy even though S.L. Nusbaum hasn’t come through and trimmed them.

It seems ironic to me that the developer ( Nusbaum) was allowed to use a loophole intended for clearing around billboards in rural areas to clear the State owned property in front of a shopping center. The bill, which passed, grants VDOT "the authority to impose on a billboard company requesting approval of a vegetation control permit, the obligation to relocate or replant vegetation according to a landscaping plan approved by VDOT, at the sole cost of the billboard company."

I don’t think clearing in front of a shopping center is  what the law was intended for.

Here are a few photos so you can see the clearing that was done abck in MArch 2009:
