Thank you to all who spoke
out for the future of our community Tuesday night, and to the many others who
have emailed the Board
of Supervisors. Hundreds of you turned out -- and Sen. Mark Herring, Del.
Chuck Caputo, and Del. Bob Marshall spoke in strong opposition to the proposal
for tens of thousands of new houses and apartments.
Keep the momentum
going on Saturday!

press release about Tuesday night
Up for Democracy, by Stewart Schwartz
our County Supervisors:
- Stick to
the existing growth plan
- Say YES
to protecting Loudoun County from massive developer proposals
- Say NO to
tens of thousands of new houses in eastern Loudoun
- Say NO to
more gridlock and higher taxes
buildout number, released at Tuesday's hearing, is 26,698 new
houses, due to a last minute amendment last week made by Supervisor
Bruce Tulloch. Yet the public notice on the hearing said 33,821
the constantly changing numbers? So are we!
unfair for the county to keep changing the proposal on us at the
last minute. Please consider also saying something along
the following lines:
figures were released at the hearing on Tuesday. There has been
no transportation analysis and only a rudimentary fiscal analysis.

We ask for this analysis
to be done and for a new public input session, where the county informs the public

another set of public hearings.

Update on 2,000 New
Houses in Leesburg
Park, previously called Creekside, is a developer proposal for
1,998 new houses and apartments on 600 acres in Leesburg. This
area is currently planned for 1 house per 10 acres, because any
development will directly impact the community's drinking water
supply drawn from Goose Creek.
the Planning Commission to vote no on the Ridgewater Park
recommends denial of this application. It does not match the county's
Comprehensive Plan at all -- a clear signal for denial. This developer
proposal will negatively impact the drinking water supply, the
Greenway, local roads, and Leesburg airport.
and Town of Leesburg recently agreed to jointly plan this area.
No rezoning should occur until that process is complete.
