Loudoun Supervisors Approve Dulles, South Riding-Area Townhouses

County supervisors have approved separate rezonings to permit 61 townhouses near Dulles Town Center Mall and 41 townhouses near South Riding.

At Colonnade, a project on an undeveloped parcel within Dulles Town Center at the corner of City Center Boulevard and Stefanie Drive, supervisors approved an application to rezone 4.15 acres from commercial zoning to residential use to permit 61 townhouses. The property is surrounded by other residential development, and the mall across the intersection.

At Mountain View Residential, supervisors approved up-zoning 6.33 acres of residential land to permit 41 townhouses on Hopestone Terrace, between Savoy Woods Estates and the Reserve at South Riding. Currently, that site contains a vacant house, garden center, and some forest. The property is surrounded by other residential development. A majority of speakers at public hearings opposed the rezoning, citing density incompatible with the area, increased traffic congestion, pedestrian safety, and impacts to wildlife and water.

Supervisors approved the applications 8-1, Supervisor Kristen C. Umstattd (D-Leesburg) opposed to both.

    So the Sups see and hear from their constituents at a public forum. Majority are opposed to this. Sups vote 8-1 in favor. Wow. Wake up Loudoun. These Sups are only in for their own financial gains and political gains. They don’t care about their constituents unless a vote is needed. We need to clean house in Loudoun and vote in those who truly care for the county taxpayers and future of this county. These are 61 townhomes being crammed into an already high density area. Why are those 61 townhomes needed? And why must it be in that area? Follow the $$$$

    It never stops. Loudoun doesn’t need any additional housing anywhere at any time. Yet, the BoS (regardless of party) keeps adding more and more and more people.

    Loudoun has the highest property taxes in the state. We need FEWER people in order to lower the amount of services we have to pay for.

    That is what the BOS does best. Vote in MORE housing despite taxpayer concerns.

    Builder campaign donations lubricate the whole operation.

    Loudoun taxpayers for the LOSS.
