Growth, it is a comin’

From the WashPost – “The Supreme Court did what
some on the pro-development majority on Loudoun’s Board of Supervisors have
wanted to do since taking power last year. Supervisors who have long slammed
the controls as an infringement on property rights appeared delighted with the
court’s ruling, and there was no indication yesterday that it would be appealed
or that Loudoun officials would try to reinstate the
regulations.”

Well, gosh Jim, you say
that you are going to focus on local issues!… What happens in the courts with
regards to private property rights and growth DIRECTLY affects the rules,
regulations and laws that impact the smart-growth aspects that are or may be
instituted in our region.

Well,
gosh Jim, you say that you are going to focus on local issues! This is a local
issue. What happens in the courts with regards to private property rights and
growth DIRECTLY affects the rules, regulations and laws that impact the
smart-growth aspects that are or may be instituted in our region. We are facing
similar growth issues, albeit on a smaller scale, that NoVa. is. We need to
learn from others’ successes and most importantly their
failures.
