Help plan your suburban community
Will the Board of Supervisors protect existing
residents and neighborhoods as it considers new development proposals? Make
sure that your concerns are heard!
Community meetings are a
great way to focus Supervisors and Planning Commissioners on MEETING the
needs of existing communities, INSTEAD OF ADDING TENS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW
HOMES THAT WILL BRING MORE TRAFFIC TO OVERWHELM OUR ROADS, COMPETE FOR
SERVICES AND BOOST OUR TAXES.
Therefore, we're pleased to inform
Waters of the Broad Run District wants Ashburn residents' opinions on the
future of their community and its development plans. See below for

Census Bureau statistics, Loudoun
County is absorbing 1

school system per year. Read the Washington Post article on the new statistics.

In the News:
DC Area Continues
Loudoun County's population jumped 41
percent in four years, the sharpest rate among the nation's counties.
What Now? Realtors

Roads in Loudoun
Over the past 4 years, Loudoun has grown 41%, a
sobering change when compared to other counties in the region:
Prince William County
Frederick County, MD
Montgomery County, MD
There is no doubt that Loudoun’s residents, roads, and budget are being
burdened with the DC metro region’s population increases. Is this fair
or equitable? There are many places in the Washington region willing and able to
absorb their fair share of the new growth, and locate the growth in more
appropriate places and closer to job centers.

spouse and children, and your quality of life? How would you like to
