Chesapeake Bay Protection Ordinance bad for Ashburn Home Owners

This is a state of the county presentation by Chairman York of the Loudoun BOS.

It discusses the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Ordinance, and the widening of Rte 50 from Poland Rd to Lee Road in Fairfax (Costco is off this road for a reference point).


Here is an excerpt of his thoughts on CBPO:

The Board of Supervisors has tried to balance the county’s population growth with protecting the environment, he said. He added that the board has done a terrific job protecting the historic features of Loudoun. But, he said, in considering adopting the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act, the county needs to ask itself, "What are we trying to accomplish?"

So at least some of the supervisors are coming around to reality on this ordinance and what it means to the county and the citizens, based on the overwhelming public input against the adoption. Hopefully Supervisor Miller will also see the light on this ordinance.

There was also a very good public advocacy article on page A21 of the Loudoun Times-Mirror on June 9 about the impact of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Ordinance (CBPO).
