Why Rural Zoning Matters to Suburban Loudoun
See for yourself what's at stake (you know, traffic, taxes, our water and air... things like that).

Keep the Momentum
Thank you to all who spoke out for the future of our community last night -- and to the many others who have weighed in by email. Hundreds of you turned out! Now we need to keep the momentum going on Saturday.

Final public hearing
Saturday, June 10 at 9 AM
County Government Center
Speaker sign up starts at 8:30 AM; we suggest lining up early

After an outcry from the public, the Board of Supervisors decided to allow us to speak for three minutes, and they reversed their decision to end the hearing at 10 PM. Citizens spoke until midnight, and those who needed to leave earlier recorded their comments. Press coverage was extensive. Our voices were heard, and we thank the Board of Supervisors for listening to all of us.

Your voice is so important for the future of our community. Tell the Board of Supervisors to:

These hearings will be your last chance to make sure the Supervisors know what you think. This decision impacts all of us -- you and I will be paying for the new roads, schools, and county services to handle all these new houses.

The lack of roads, water, etc., in western Loudoun is a great challenge. Imagine the county's mounting debt and your mounting tax bill if we need to build and operate multiple schools in the rural area, not to mention other necessary services and infrastructure.

We still need so much in eastern Loudoun -- paved roads, stoplights, interchanges, schools, fire and police stations, etc. So many more houses have already been approved but not yet build in our communities -- 17,000 more houses in Asbhurn, 11,000 more house near South Riding, etc. We do not need more competition for scarce state and local funds.

If you're tired of your increasing tax bill, you need to speak up! Or hold a sign. Or stand next to your spouse while she/he speaks. Please come and show our elected officials that you care -- your participation will make the difference! Let us know if you can come.
