Whitewater Center Hits a Roadblock

Three weeks before the scheduled opening of the U.S. National Whitewater Center outside of Charlotte, six neighboring residents upset about construction traffic on the Center’s entrance road installed a steel gate and blocked access. According to WCNC.com, they offered to lease the road to the Park for $12,000 per month. Let’s see…with six neighbors, that comes to the tidy sum of $24,000 annually per neighbor. Nice work if you can get it.

After a court hearing today, the neighbors agreed to unlock the gate, at least for the next ten days. Another hearing is scheduled for next week. In the meantime, work on the Center will resume, although the Center’s opening has been delayed until the end of June or early July. Stay tuned….
