Comment from a former potential buyer

Our eco-sensitive identity isn’t just critical to the overall health of the neighborhood: It’s why people choose to purchase property and live in Horizons Village. The scar that the pipeline and its right-of-way easement would create has already driven off prospective buyers and caused current lot owners to reconsider their plans to permanently move to Nelson County. Each resident lost is one less resident to serve as a steward of the land.

According to multiple real estate agents familiar with Horizons Village, even lots outside the pipeline’s blast zone would likely become less desirable, marketable, and valuable. Even the prospect of pipeline construction in Horizons Village has already made the neighborhood less attractive. One buyer recently cancelled her contract on a lot in Horizons Village after learning about the Appalachian Trail South Alternate Route.
