Road construction plans are in the process of review with Spot- sylvania County. We anticipate that they will be approved by spring of 2017. Why do you think some de- velopments like Cutalong and Lake Anna Resort have not gotten off the ground? The success of any develop- ment is dependent on the make- up and persistence of the devel- oper, his vision, his ambition, his planning skills, and access to capital - plus a boat load of luck. Development is not an easy business, it is inherent with risks and unknowns. Priority Number One – is it adequately funded to coincide with the shift in the economic and political environ- ment. Further, does the planning ad- dress the needs of the market? Is the development creating a new market, or simply respond- ing to the same projects as the competition. If it is the latter, then the de- veloper will simply have to stand in line, and wait for the market to come to him – rather than proving a product that drives the market to his particular commu- LKA BLACK FRIDAY SALE ON ALL IN-STOCK PADDLEBOARDS & KAYAKS!

They are the folks responsible for respecting the needs and will of the public – as opposed to the developer’s self-interests. In any case “Promise what you can deliver, and deliver what you promise”. Anything less spells di- saster. There are several examples of this aftermath around Lake Anna. What do you like to do when you are at Lake Anna? Aside by being consumed by real estate development activity, I find the time to slalom water ski, oc- casional fishing, but I most enjoy running as it helps me with train- ing for competing here in Florida in 10 K’s, and ½ marathon races during the winter season. Plus it’s great to just kick back, and enjoy the scenic Lake Anna environment from the vantage point of my gazebo. Tell us about the significance of the red phone booth at your lake house. I have been asked about the purpose of the red phone booth. It was just a novel approach in creating an attraction – actually I wanted to locate it on the shore- line, but could not find a feasible method to get it down the slope without it going into the lake as it weighs 3,000 lbs. What is it about Lake Anna in your opinion that makes it dif- ferent from other water resort areas such as Smith Mountain Lake Lake Anna is simply an awe- some area. It is completely differ- ent and separate from other bod- ies of water. Roughly 85 miles – a 1-½ hour drive from a metropoli- tan area of 4.5 million people to the north, and another two million people to the south. It is cleaner and much friend- lier than the Potomac River and certainly much closer than Smith Mountain Lake – considering it is a ½ day trip from Washington DC - anyone in their right mind would choose Lake Anna. This is exactly what we are banking on with all our developments, and we are going to put our heart and soul into making that happen.
