Don’t any of these Supervisors recognize the old truthyism (for you Stephen Colbert fans)…..You can’t DIG yourself out of a hole!
The current direction of Prince Wiliam County’s land use policies are simply unsustainable for a healthy community. We are not, and will NEVER be, a Fairfax County, NOR do we want to be. We must create a new vision for this county, based on OUR unique assests in Prince William County, of which there are many. To understand the complete and utter craziness of our entire planning process, click here,and you will wonder if our county is creating just paper plans or a healthy community based in a 3D world where REAL people live.
Doesn’t our County, with its beautiful landscape, and interesting features, deserve a viable land use plan, that takes ADVANTAGE of our assets instead of just the old tired cookie cutter approach (which, by the way, got us in the current fix to begin with!)
Like Charlie Grymes said in his blog post:
The Planning Department must like the “ready-fire-aim” approach. They are recommending approvals of CPA’s now, basing their advice on the draft chapter produced by the Land Use Advisory Committee that the Planning Commission did not accept. Wow, Rube Goldberg must be their favorite designer for household furniture.
If you like unrestricted development, initiate CPA’s out of sequence with plan revisions.
If you like comprehensive planning, do not initiate any CPA’s now.
