Roanoke Valley News

ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Less than two weeks after the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke won their second court case against neighboring property owners, the wildlife center announced a motion to reconsider has been filed over the court decision.

The wildlife center says the motion was filed to reconsider the recent decision in favor of the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke and the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors.

This news comes after the Circuit Court of Roanoke County ruled in favor of the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke on March 10 during their second court case regarding a lawsuit brought on by Adrian Maver, Blaine Creasy, and Stan and Jane Seymour in relation to a special use permit to build a raptor facility to rehabilitate large birds of prey.

“Unfortunately, and expectedly, the four neighbors have filed to appeal the court decision that was recently decided in favor of the wildlife center and a decision by the Board of Supervisors of Roanoke County,” the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke announced on Monday, March 22. “These lawsuits continue to financially drain us; not to mention all the money that they’ve cost the taxpayers of Roanoke County too!”
