A step in the right direction

Board votes to protect taxpayers

Also: More good news on Phil Bolen Park

Dear Neighbors,

We congratulate you for making your voice heard on issues that impact your daily life.

On Tuesday night, a tri-partisan group of Supervisors voted 5-4 to send the Option 1 (also known as the Clem/Burton Proposal, details here) to the public hearing process for the rural zoning in Loudoun County.

Five Supervisors took a significant step towards ensuring that County zoning and decisions protect our quality of life by enhancing the rural economy, reducing the number of new vehicle trips on our roads and ensuring that there is enough money for schools, parks and services in our existing neighborhoods.

Voted For Option 1

Board Chairman Scott York (I-At Large)
Supervisor Jim Clem (R-Leesburg)
Supervisor Lori Waters (R-Broad Run)
Supervisor Jim Burton (I-Blue Ridge)
Supervisor Sally Kurtz (D-Catoctin)

Voted Against Option 1

Supervisor Bruce Tulloch (R-Potomac)
Supervisor Steve Snow (R-Dulles)
Supervisor Mick Staton (R-Sugarland Run)
Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling)

The fiscal benefits of maintaining a rural economy instead of adding tens of thousands more houses in Western Loudoun was raised last night – echoing what hundreds of residents have been saying for months.

Your voices were a key part of the shift that began last night.




Please send an email to the Supervisors to thank them for listening to the citizens and making the right choice.

While there are many details to be worked to make sure that any new rural zoning protects the rural economy and the quality of life for all residents, we congratulate the Supervisors who are listening to the consistent message from citizens and rejecting changes that would benefit a few developers at the expense of all residents.

No new dates have been set for the public to be heard again on this proposal. We will continue to keep you informed.

Update on Phil Bolen Memorial Park:

The Board of Supervisors voted on Tuesday, July 19, to authorize the bidding process to construct the athletic fields for this critically needed complex for our families. This is good news as it appears the developer scheme to construct residential units on the park as part of an overall 4,000+ unit residential development is not being revisited at this time by the Board of Supervisors.

It was with your help that we were able to fight the ill-advised developer scheme for this property. We will continue to monitor this matter closely.
