Stormwater Regulations Could Significantly Affect Property Rights
October 2010 - We all value our physical environment, and value efforts to clean up our waterways, including the Chesapeake Bay. We also value our homes, our private property, and the jobs and benefits that accompany economic development in the County. Balancing economic development, private property rights and environmental protection is not easy. Fairfax County does a pretty good job of it, but recent regulations promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency may disrupt that balance.

Input Needed on Potential Commercial Parking Limits 
July 2009 - I would appreciate your input on a proposal that will soon come before the Board that would prohibit certain vehicles from parking on residential streets in the County.

Recently-passed state legislation allows counties to broaden the restrictions placed on certain types of vehicles.
