I wonder if Morgantown has ever tried to annex the Glenmark Center into city limits. It's a good size shopping plaza with a couple of hotels and shops.
Morgantown seems to have no interest in expanding the geographic footprint. They seem content to let the outlying towns take the new developments on. They feel no need to artificially pump up population data. They're not in some kind of contest with anyone, and are doing quite will within their 10 square miles... dense and compact.

I agree with you, but that is not the current line of thinking.

Right, Just reconizing the general area.

But like the developments off Jerry Dove, Westover can capitalize off of the interstate, Morgantown's growth, and the new ball park. It just needs to be well thought out from both the city of Westover and private developers.

Ha - "Westover" and "well thought-out" in the same sentence... That will never happen. To give an idea of the minds in Westover, they elected a repeat, repeat felon over a police officer in the recent mayoral elections.

I never understood how the University Town Center was considered Granville and the new area is now annexed by Westover. It seems all those projects fall into the geographic footprint of Scott's Run. Does that area not get a piece of the pie because all those small towns are unincorporated?

The area they are talking about for Westover is the area on the other side of I79, not the area next to the Town Centre. They are adding an exit for the Interstate, and developing the area on the other side of the Interstate between the two exits. That area would be in Westover by agreement with the developers. Westover has agreed to pay for the infrastructure as part of the deal.

I was in town last week and found it amusing that when you leave town and cross the Star City bridge theres a Welcome to Scott's Run sign. Yet Granville and Westover have all the land and development right there.
