SHENANDOAH COUNTY -- Members on the board of supervisors are discussing what to do with 300 acres of land left to the county in a will.

The deed stipulates the land has to be used for recreational purposes.

Steve Baker, who is on the board of supervisors, knows it may be costly for the county to keep up 300 acres, but he thinks it will pay off in the long run.

"You could possibly use some of it for agriculture, like agricultural demonstrations, and that would confirm to the terms of the will. So, you could have a park here and an agricultural part on the other side of it, and have a win win for both sides," said Baker.

Baker said he doesn't want to regret not using the land for it's intended purposes.
