Regular readers of this blog will recall that the Carson Raymond Foundation is building two new dugouts on the field at Woodbrook Elementary school. Many Woodbrook residents are puzzled by the apparent slow progress of construction following this summer’s rush for approvals.

Dugout construction began sometime in August, but has languished since then. Carson Raymond Foundation officials pushed hard for a summer approval of their plans on the basis that dugout construction would be completed by the start of the school year. Most Woodbrook residents had less than ten days notice of the school board’s public hearing in July. The Albemarle County Planning Commission typically provides eight weeks notice prior to a public hearing.
According to a Carson Raymond Foundation spokesman, the Foundation plans to complete the work “this fall.”
