Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to speak at the Board of County Supervisor’s meeting on October 14, and to those who wrote emails and made phone calls regarding your opinions about the Rivergate Proffer amendments.

We may have lost the vote, but the battle wages on.  We sent a clear message to the Board of County Supervisors last night that we have had enough of the old way of thinking about development issues.  We let them know that we do not want or need more apartments along the Route 1 corridor, and we are tired of subsidizing developers because they are not mitigating the impacts of their development on the community.

For too long, strip malls and apartments have ruled the day in Woodbridge.  What we really need is smart growth in the likes of other town centers in eastern Prince William such as Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center, Belmont Bay, Neabsco Commons, and Potomac Shores.  Our goal is to bring jobs to Woodbridge, not just more residential units.  Once build out is complete for these town centers we will be able to link them together through sidewalks, trails, bus, rail, and even a ferry in order for people to live in one development, work in another, and shop  in a third.  Mixed use town center development will get cars off of Route 1 and Interstate 95. It will expand our tax base, and it will improve quality-of-life.

I hope that Rivergate is able to spur economic development in North Woodbridge as they suggested the project will do. The developer, IDI Group, has a great reputation for building a good product and now that the changes are approved, we turn our attention to making sure their project fully comes to fruition, and that surrounding parcels of land bring businesses and jobs to North Woodbridge.  You can read more about the vote here:
