Growth seems to be on everyone’s minds in Central Virginia. Will our community become even more ridden by sprawl and property tax increases? That’s what happened in Loudoun County, according to Jim Burton of the county’s Board of Supervisors. He’s an advocate of slow growth, and in this February 28 presentation to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, he describes why and how Loudoun’s population grew from 57,427 in 1980 to nearly 270,000 today. If you want to skip the introduction by Jack Marshall of Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population, fast forward to 4:00 to get right to Burton’s comments, followed by a question and answer period.
