may be on summer vacation, but the developers aren't.......
let the developers flood the market and hurt the values of our houses.
Developers are pushing for approval of thousands of new houses this
summer. Meanwhile, we've all noticed more and more "For Sale"
signs going up in our neighborhoods and not coming down.
Prices of homes
are dropping in my Ashburn neighborhood, as I'm sure you are seeing
too. Given the current housing market, does it make sense to add
to our existing county pipeline of 36,000 new houses, approved and
not yet built? Tell
the Board of Supervisors to stop adding to the thousands of
new houses they've already approved.
1,935 New Houses on Route 7?
Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the developer
proposal for One
Loudoun/World Trade Center on Monday, July 17 at 6:30
PM at the County
Government Center. If you can't attend the public hearing, email
the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors and tell them
what you think.
Sale" signs going up and staying up, does it make sense right
now to convert any premier planned office space along Route
7 to new houses?
land at the intersection of Route 7 and Loudoun County Parkway (see
map) is currently set aside for commericial/office space, the
developer is planning: 1,935 houses not currently zoned,
14,000 jobs (what are they basing this promise on?), and 3.8 million
square feet of office, commercial, and retail space on 360 acres.
Remember not so long ago, our community was promised over 30,000
jobs at WorldCom.
for this land could be implemented today under the current zoning,
without the need for a public hearing process -- and without 1,935

South CPAM Update
Planning Commission recommended approval of this change to the county's
growth plan last week -- a change which
the county has said could add up to tens of thousands of new houses
along Route 50.
the Planning Commission made changes to the CPAM and did not provide
a build-out analysis, we can't tell you how many new houses could
be built. We suspect that this version of the CPAM could
yield even MORE than the 28,000 new houses we've been hearing about
for more than a year. See the county's previous analysis
of the plan.
the Board of Supervisors it is unacceptable
to consider such a massive change to our county's growth plan with
no specific buildout numbers. We need to know the impact
on our roads, schools, and taxes!
don't have to wait for the public hearing to speak up. Here are
two ways you can make comments now:
to the next Board of Supervisors' business meeting on Tuesday,
July 18 at 9:30 AM at the County
and say NO to tens of thousands new houses on Route 50, or
an email to the Board of Supervisors
Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the Route
50/Arcola CPAM (Comprehensive Plan Amendment) on Tuesday,
July 25 at 6:30 PM at the County
can't attend the public hearing, email
the Board of Supervisors and tell them what you think.
build-out analysis of these proposed changes to the county's growth
plan has not been done and it is unclear how much residential, retail
and office space would be allowed by the CPAM. Be sure to tell
the Board of Supervisors that we need a build-out analysis of
the CPAM in order to evaluate it effectively.

houses from an area with few jobs and little infrastructure.
