Quality Life For Our Citizens
Growth and urban sprawl are major concerns for the communities of Prince William and Fauquier Counties. We must ensure that localities—your Board of Supervisors—have the necessary tools and authority to provide for rational growth that protects the quality of life in our neighborhoods and protects the property rights of all citizens. In general, to do this we should keep decisions at the lowest possible level to make sure citizen voices are heard and viable plans are embraced. But we must also have a balanced policy that promotes good growth to grow our economy while ensuring that the money is there to mitigate the impact of growth on our communities. Local Boards must not make bad growth decisions that create the very congestion we at the state must fix. I will
- Support rational local control of quality of life matters that affect our communities.
- Promote rational and reasonable growth policies.
- Ensure that monies proffered for growth mitigation are used for that purpose.
