Editor: The new Comprehensive Plan was approved, to desultory applause from the small audience. A number of supervisors had proclaimed that since the plan garnered equally bland reactions from both conservationists and developers, it must be “good.”
They were wrong.
Loudoun County belongs to its citizens, not to the real estate industry, and not to people who don’t live here. For the Comp Plan truly to be good, it should have prompted citizens to dance in the streets and developers to drown in their tears.
Pity things did not turn out that way.
