Supervisors Vote No on 33,000 New Houses
to the action of thousands of you over the past two years, the Loudoun
Board of Supervisors voted no on the Transition
Area CPAM yesterday.
to reject 33,000 new houses and apartments, in an area with few
jobs and little infrastructure, is a huge win for Loudoun taxpayers
and commuters -- and most of all, our families.
take a moment to thank
the Board of Supervisors for this historic vote to
protect the future of our community. Also, please send
a note of thanks to the state elected officials who supported
the citizens' efforts.
We still face
several challenges: the
rural zoning which allows 46,000 new houses to be built in western
Loudoun and large proposals to turbocharge growth
around Leesburg and Ashburn.
we are beginning to see a major change in direction. The
Board is clearly beginning to listen to us. Instead of focusing
on developer proposals to open new land to development, we call
on our elected leaders to focus on the needs of our existing communities,
such as a better transportation network, high quality schools, and
parks and recreation centers.
