MADISON HEIGHTS, Va. (WFXR) — Lynchburg area residents have a chance to weigh in on what will happen to a big property along the James River in Madison Heights.
The Central Virginia Training Center closed for good earlier this year, and on Thursday, Oct. 1, the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance launched their redevelopment plan.
Business Alliance leaders say whatever comes next will have major economic and cultural impacts on Lynchburg and Amherst County, and they’re looking for input from the community about what that should look like.
“This is 350 acres, has 98 buildings on it,” said Megan Lucas, CEO of the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance, “and those buildings are old and in various stages, so it will be a long process, but the idea is, what’s the future of this site? And if we do nothing, it will continue to be blighted.”
A public survey will be available until Oct. 26.
The Alliance plans to have the redevelopment plan done next year.
