Editor: To all those council members who voted to deny the Crescent Parke Project—Kelly Burk, Tom Dunn, Bruce Gemmill, and Marty Martinez—a great big thank you from all of us who work diligently and long to defeat this high density development.
Their wisdom and judgment to prevent this unbridled high density development, which would have resulted in a total traffic nightmare, the loss of an entire forest, and the preserving of the integrity of Olde Izaak Walton park is to be commended.
The struggle to prevent Leesburg from becoming a monoculture of townhouses, and the preservation of what little green spaces we have left is an on-going struggle. Their decision to deny this project makes a statement to resist the tide of unrestricted clearing and density projects for future generations.
On behalf of all of us who fought against this, we greatly appreciate the effort and will remember it in the upcoming November election and beyond.
Thank you for your courage and conviction.
Bettina Guerre, Leesburg
