The future of a racetrack in Edge is something a lot of people are keeping tabs on. Now, there may be a new twist to the story.
Racetrack developer Barret Lyne says the land originally designated for the track, is for sale.
Lyne says he still wants to use his acres for a wildlife refuge, with a racetrack in the middle to help sustain the green space.
However, because of a possible legal battle with some Edge homeowners who don't want the track, Lyne says he's considering selling the land.
Although he says he doesn't want the land to be split up into housing lots, if sold, the future of the land would be out of Lyne's control.
"If that did develop and that was an outcome, I would no longer have any control over it. I would take that money and go somewhere else where there are less people and neighbors are further away, and try to do the environmental thing again," said Lyne.
Some Edge residents have hired an attorney to fight the alcohol permit Lyne was recently granted for the track.
