Scarlet Oaks claims it also operates a banquet hall and event facility as, as well as a full-service restaurant.
Appalachian Power has been granted general rights of easements across portions of the property and, in 2014, the plaintiff and defendant entered into a “Supplemental Easement and Right of Way” agreement and an “Easement of Right of Way” agreement, according to the suit.
On or after April 30, 2014, Appalachian Power entered Scarlet Oaks’ property to install, erect, construct or otherwise maintain their equipment, according to the suit.
