Growth Debate Moves From Loudoun To Stafford
For the past several years Loudoun County, Virginia has been the center of the of the growth/no-growth debate in the Northern Virginia area. Tremendous residential and commercial development in the burgeoning county spawned a fierce battle between pro-development and slow-growth activists. However, in the last election, much of the slow-growth board was replaced with a slate of more development-friendly officials. As a result, the slow-growth activists seem to be shifting their sights to Stafford County.
