Traffic Concerns May Spur Loudoun and Fairfax to Work Together

According to today's Loudoun Times-Mirror, transportation concerns in western Fairfax County, exacerbated by growth in eastern Loudoun County, have led residents to develop partnerships across county lines.

According to the article, "Mark McConn, president of the Sully District Council and a member of the Western Fairfax County Citizens Association, said both his civic organizations are preparing letters to Sully District Supervisor [Fairfax County] Michael Frey (R), and county Chairman Gerry Connolly (D-at large) asking for them to initiate 'interjurisdictional meetings.'

"The area's bad traffic problems are worse because of disproportionate development across the region and roads that bottleneck at county lines," McConn said.

The story also includes comments from Scott York (I-At large), chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors; Steve Hines, a resident of of eastern Loudoun County and a member of Families for Dulles South, an organization formed to discourage large-scale development on U.S. 50; and Corey Stewart (R-At-large), Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors.
