Governor Kaine in Loudoun next Tuesday
Tell him we need land use reform now!
Governor Kaine will hold a town hall meeting in Loudoun next Tuesday, March 28,
at 7:00 PM. The Governor is rallying support to raise our taxes for transportation
needs -- but critical land use reforms promised to us during his campaign have
not been passed by the General Assembly.
Town Hall Meeting

need land use reform now.

hearings on the rural zoning changes have not been scheduled, but we'll keep you
posted. In the meantime, urge
the Supervisors to make a decision in the best interest of all Loudoun residents.
