What now for Land Use/Transportation?

The Planning Commission postponed a decision on the Transportation and Land Use chapters last night – but left the public hearing open.  That detail was not noted in the Washington Post article

If you missed the chance to talk last night, you can speak at Citizen’s Time next Wednesday, and at future meetings until the public hearing is officially closed.   

As the Planning Staff produces some of the data requested by the members of the Planning Commission after the citizens finished speaking last night, you may find some interesting numbers. 

Quite a few of the Planning Commissioners have scientific expertise, so they ought to be able to deal with statistics.   I’m particularly interested in the estimated demand for additional housing units beyond what current zoning would allow vs. potential development that would be permitted in the 25 “centers.”   

(NOTE: A 4-hour work session will be held by the Planning Commission, but there is no citizen time normally at such sessions.)

    A work session on these updates is scheduled for October 15, 2008 at 6 PM in the Potomac Conference Room at the McCoart Building, 1 County Complex Ct., Prince William, VA 22192.
