Here's the original post, from what I read on pirate they bought Paragon and it had a 25 year lease on the land. After just 2 or 3 years the land owner is trying to break the lease to sell the place.

If you've ever been to Paragon, it is directly behind an industrial park. You have to drive through the park to get there. It sounds like they want to expand the industrial park at the expense of Paragon.

This sucks because Paragon is probably one of the best sites on the East coast for wheeling. There are tons of good trails there from mild to wild, and even after being there a number of times and for multiple days at a time, I have yet to cover the entire park.

Quote:
Before the rumor mill starts to fly. We want to be up front with all our customers and supporters. Currently Paragon and PCA Corporation (land owner) is in legal dispute over our lease agreement for this property. We have done everything within our powers to honor our agreements with the land holding company, but they are trying to evict us from the premesis so they can sell the property. We are still in business and will remain in business as long as possible and we are fighting this with every measure available.

We know the next question is how can you help. Unfortunately, there really isn't anything you can do. We would however, appreciate everyone's hopes and prayers for a good outcome.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kyle & Stephanie Knosp

So, exactly what does a petition do to solve a contract legal dispute between 2 businesses?

#4014 here... It would be a shame to lose a park like that.
