Go to Prince William County if you want lax zoning laws. Go to Fauquier if you want more controlled growth. The Plains is a very small and old town in Fauquier Co off Rt 55. Pretty expensive place to live.

Average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment depends on your income (Highland Apts.) and can range from $1200 and up. Talk is that the Weissberg Corporation (who already own one of the shopping centers in Warrenton), is working for a multi-use permit to build a project (over the next 10-20 years) behind Country Chevrolet, on 41 Acres as you enter town from the east. I'm with the person who wants to move further west toward Winchester, yet it is not financially possible at this time. Traffic has become so bad here that there are now traffic jams on Lee Highway through town.

I'm a third person looking to move to Winchester. Wow. That place is going to see gang-buster growth in the coming years!

Doubtful. It's one of those places where the newcomers can't keep up with the old-timers dying off.

But I've been in NOVA since 73 so it's time for me. You're a newcomer. J/K. I don't dislike NOVA (too much) but have grown tired of the issues here.
