Montgomery County looks to sell former AEP land
MONTGOMERY COUNTY (WSLS 10) - The future of a Montgomery County property is in question, as a neighborhood comes together to claim it as their own.
The county is considering selling around 12 acres off Nik Ryan Drive. It is part of a bigger effort to get rid of unused property to generate revenue.
The land connects to Nellies Cave Park in Blacksburg.
Nearby homeowners spoke at a public hearing this week. They said although the land is not technically a park, dozens of people use it for that purpose every week and do not want to see it developed.
Appalachian Power donated the property to Montgomery County in the early 2000s.
