Every time there is a big development planned in our area, a large group of people will appear before the County Commission and protest. In some cases, groups will organize and try to stop the development via the courts. In most cases they are not effective and the subdivision or strip mall will happen anyway.

In Fairfax County VA, most of the election money for the County Commission members come from the Development/Real Estate Industry. Of course the Commissioners say it has not impact on their decisions but if that is the case why does the development community give money?

In general, do you support more or less growth in your community? Do you view new houses, malls and concrete just part of progress or would you say enough is enough?

I think there is an enough is enough. How much concrete does one place need?
