Albemarle County sues Charlottesville over Ragged Mountain trail use
The Daily Progress Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 6 p.m.
The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors has filed a lawsuit against the Charlottesville City Council over whose regulations dictate what activities are permitted at the Ragged Mountain Natural Area, a city-owned park located in the county.
According to the lawsuit, the city’s adoption of an ordinance that conflicts with the county’s rules is “an actual antagonistic assertion of the city’s right to purportedly regulate activities by ordinance beyond its corporate limits …”
The supervisors are seeking a court injunction to keep a county prohibition against cycling at the site in place.
In December, the council passed an ordinance allowing mountain biking on trails around the reservoir.
