2 Thoughts to “Mark Your Calendars”

  1. Development & History can coexist with “Context Sensitive Solutions.”

    Despite the Prince William County Board of Supervisors voted one year ago to be involved in The Journey Through Hallowed Ground, Rt. 15, also known as James Madison Highway in Prince William County which is being rapidly suburbanized with new,thoughtless growth.

    The Journey is a National Heritage Area running the 175 miles along Rt. 15 from Gettysburg, PA to Thomas Jefferson’s home “Monticello”near Charlottesville, VA. This area contains more American history than any other. This means money for PWC from Heritage Tourism. The Journey will also give us federal funds to beautify and protect the rural, historic viewshed, roadbed and roadside along Rt. 15.

    At this time, those that organized The Journey are saying that without improvements, the Journey will bypass most of Prince William County. If this happens, Rt. 15 will continue with its ugly growth.

    Most using Rt. 15 daily are appalled at the ugliness that is created. Prince William has much history to be proud of in its Rural Crescent and it is getting lost. There are ways of hiding the new development, such as with berms (earthen hills), set backs, landscaping, putting wires underground, having planted road mediums, etc. (all called Context Sensitive Solutions). If a road needs to be four lanes it can look like a parkway. People will be paid to leave their woods uncut.

    Now the Board of Supervisors must put some bite into their declaration made one year ago that they want to be a part of The Journey, a decision that beautifies our county, increases the value of our homes and improves the quality of our lives.

    PWC should implement context sensitive solutions throughout the county. Help us avoid ugly, over-development, maintain our history, and preserve the natural beauty we have. These are gifts and we need to treat them as such. (wording mostly from “Friends of Route 15”)
