Residents of the Glenmore neighborhood aren’t fond of the sounds from the shooting range nearby. Looking in the Charlottesville MLS, the oldest home I can find in the Glenmore neighborhood was built in 1993; the shooting range has been there for 40 or 50 years â€¦ what’s the solution? If Glenmore wants to pay for sound dampening, I can imagine the range would entertain that offer.
The Glenmore community has a single source of public drinking water, a 4-mile pipeline that runs along U.S. 250 east of Charlottesville. However, if Albemarle officials decide to add a backup storage tank, they will use $2 million of the countyâ€™s capital funds rather than ask the developers or Glenmore residents to pay for it.
â€œ It is not something that is needed to provide [water] for Glenmore,â€ said James Bowling IV, legal counsel for the Albemarle County Service Authority. â€œ Itâ€™s a convenience [but] one that you would certainly call a necessity if there was an emergency.â€
