ABINGDON, Va. (AP) — The Washington County Board of Supervisors is joining opponents of The Crooked Road's bid to become a National Heritage Area.
The Bristol Herald Courier (http://bit.ly/YmfcX0 ) reports that board members voted Tuesday to draft a resolution of nonsupport.
Crooked Road officials say the designation would provide the music heritage trail's 19-county region with federal funding, more recognition and marketing tools.
Washington County Supervisor Bill Gibson says federal strings come with federal dollars.
Officials in Russell, Smith and Wythe counties also oppose the designation.
