What’s The Committee of 500 Been Up To?
Anyone else noticing how the Committee of 500 is working closer with developers? Most of the members were strong supporters of the Summit Crossing project that is now on hold because it was much too large for Spotsylvania supervisors to comprehend. That was 5,900 homes in what appeared to be a smart-growth project.
Now, the leadership seems to be working together with Luck Stone, who has a project in the works called Ni Village, "A Sustainable Community in Spotsylvania Virginia."
They are in favor of a GREENWAY project that will connect by trail different parts of the county. Always about smart growth, C-500 was a group of concerned residents who interviewed potential elected leaders to see how much they aligned with their own beliefs on growth.
Tricord proposed a smart-growth project and it failed to gain steam. Luck Stone is up next, and they have the backing of this group of concerned citizens.
