GUEST: Dede Smith, a member of the Charlottesville City Council. She joins Coy to explore the controversial proposal of a development at the corner of Ridge-Cherry-McIntire roads in Charlottesville. Critics are charging the developers with a “bait-and-switch” on their plans, and say a majority of City Council appears ready to support it— despite going against a unanimous vote on the Planning Commission and hundreds of business and homeowners in the community. More on the story is here  from Charlottesville Tomorrow.
