Albemarle Supervisors Sign Off on Plan to Adjust Scottsville Borders
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - The town of Scottsville could soon be expanding.
The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors signed off on a plan to incrementally adjust the town's boundaries at its meeting Wednesday night.
Nearly four years ago, the Scottsville Volunteer Fire Department acquired a neighboring piece of land in order to expand its building. That plat of land is outside town limits, which has caused issues with the expansion.
Supervisor Rick Randolph says the expansion is necessary because the current building does not fit larger, more modern fire engines.
"They need to build parallel to Route 6 and in doing so, their desire was to go ahead and put an additional space above the new garages for those fire equipment and the only way to do that was to then acquire this property to the west," Randolph said.
Supervisors also clarified a boundary line that has long been in question along the James River near the Fluvanna County border. Both of these boundary changes will now head to the Albemarle County Circuit Court to be officially put into record.
