Offsetting the Costs of Residential Growth

January 9, 2013 by Blue Ridge Leader Columns, View From the Ridge Be the first to comment
blueridge2.jpg

By Malcolm Baldwin

“According to a study by the Loudoun County Economic Development Commission, for every dollar in county tax revenue, residential costs $1.62 in services while commercial only costs $0.38 in services.” 

So wrote Supervisor Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run District) in his December 2012 newsletter. Supervisor Matt Letourneau ?(R-Dulles District) noted the same facts in his own.

How will these facts about the costs of residential growth affect upcoming decisions of our Board of Supervisors, including Williams and Letourneau, who campaigned for lower property taxes and a stronger commercial tax base?

We may soon have some answers, as Loudoun now has eight applications to change zoning from commercial to residential that would result in a total of 10,000 new housing units. More than half of these rezoning proposals lie in Letourneau’s Dulles District, followed by Williams’ Broad Run, with the rest lying in the Catoctin-Leesburg joint planning area.   If approved they will add some 3,000 new students and require $282 million in capital facility costs. How would that square with the Republican goal of reducing taxes and increasing the business tax base? … Continue Reading

Please Skip the PR and Protect the Things We Love

Gov. Bob McDonnell has appointed Purcellville mayor Bob Lazaro to the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation (VLCF).

The VLCF – designed to protect the working farms, forests, natural areas, parks, rivers, and historical sites critical to the state’s economy, culture and quality of life – has spent more than 42 million dollars since 1999. That’s serious money and political influence, and you have to wonder whether Bob Lazaro is a fitting choice.

In the five years since being elected mayor, Mr. Lazaro has overseen one controversial action after another regarding the preservation of Purcellville’s history and the conservation of the broader local environment upon which this growing town has such an impact. … Continue Reading

“We’re Going To Look Like Sterling … ”

By Andrea Gaines

In what many town residents will remember as one of the saddest days in recent memory, the Town of Purcellville last month bulldozed hundreds and hundreds of trees, including nearly 100 fruit producing trees, on the 250 year old working farm, Crooked Run Orchard.

Said local businessman Tom Inman, “We’re going to look like Sterling, and frankly, that’s not the reason I moved to Purcellville.”

The Crooked Run Orchard saga has been going on for many years – but this was a theshold moment. … Continue Reading

My Time with Paul

tim jon

It was things he said, and the way he said ‘em: like, a chilly morning: “I tell ya, ya step outside, it gets yer attention, do-n’t it?” Or, his drive in from Middleburg: “Traffic at Gilberts Corner was jus’ outta this world.” And, the ubiquitous: “The cause o’ the fire – as they say – is under investigation.” But food-talk was the holy of holies, in which Paul possessed an almost otherworldly talent: On deep fried turkey: “Like sittin’ down to a meal with Jesus.” His favorite snack: “Chocolate’s one of the basic food groups.” And, his beloved donuts: “We need some Krispy Kreme.” Paul was perfectly suited for local radio, because- most of all – he just plain loved talking to- and about – people. … Continue Reading

A Matter of Priorities

April 4, 2012 by Blue Ridge Leader Columns, View From the Ridge 1 comment
blueridge2

Budget decisions often reveal the real priorities of a Board. Competing needs and limited resources force any Board to fund its highest priority items. In that light, there are two decisions that the Board made during its budget workshop sessions that are especially worthy of note.

First, on the evening of March 21st the Board adopted a School Budget that will require the School Board to cut an additional $25.5 million from its proposed FY13 Budget. The School Board, a majority of whom are fiscal conservatives, had already reduced the Superintendent’s proposed budget as far as it felt that it could without causing serious harm to the school system. An additional $25.5 million in cuts will almost certainly lead to that end and do harm to the system. … Continue Reading

It’s Time for Change

April 29, 2010 by Contributor View From the Ridge Be the first to comment

Submitted By Kelli Grim, Candidate for Town Council

Abraham Lincoln, once said that nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power. Our sixteenth president was an ardent believer in that messy, creaking process we call democracy, both in its capacity to improve the human condition and also to improve the human. Selecting candidates, voting, abiding by the results, are an important part of the process, to be sure. Lincoln thought that the greatest virtue of democracy is that it calls all of us to be better human beings, or, at least, use the process we call democracy to move us farther along on that road. Sometimes, in the rough process of electioneering, amidst all the rhetoric, hoopla, and, yes, the lies and distortions, there is a goal often missed, an arrow that falls far short of its mark. Yet, it is a lofty goal, to both set public policy, even on a stage as small as Purcellville’s, to be a good steward of the people’s money, to set decent, responsible, and compassionate policy, and still to aim for something greater: to become a better human being and to instill in others a respect for the human condition and its vast God-given potential.

So much has passed since the time of Lincoln, some of it good, such as the end of slavery, and some of it bad, two world wars, for example. Someone else said that people get the government they deserve, a proposition I have never agreed with. Why good people do bad things or why good people tolerate people who do bad things is a question I will leave to theologians and residents of Purcellville.

One thing, however, is certain: Lincoln distrusted power, and what it could do to people. And, Lincoln himself had to exercise great power. Leadership is a great part of power, and we touch and influence many lives every single day. Leaders do not have the right to serve only those that agree with them. A good leader is always open to new ideas and never degrades anyone for their own. As a leader, one must respect everyone’s opinions, and embrace, as opposed to belittle, those involved and listening.

The problem in Purcellville is not only that the Town is immersed in debt, but, that its managers are engaged in a shell game with the Town’s finances. Not only are major decisions constantly made behind closed doors, its leaders are impervious to any view but their own, and find it acceptable to ignore citizens requests for explanations. How many lost lawsuits, for example, does it take to drive the point home to the Town’s leaders that you cannot sue your way out of bad decisions. The battle with the County has hurt us all. The battle with the Browns over the Southern Connector Road has diminished all of us as individuals, and as taxpayers. The Town’s childlike attempts to lay at a couple of individuals’ feet the blame for the road delays is erroneous and absurd, with bad consequences for us all.

It is time for a change in the way Purcellville deals with its problems and time for a change in the way Purcellville deals with its citizens, and it is time for a change in the way Purcellville sees itself and in the way it deals with its neighbors. Democracy is a messy, often terrible, often agonizing process, and not immune to outside pressure. That’s why the voting is secret. Because, it is only in a democracy, and in the privacy of the voting booth, where voters do not have to walk the line between pressure and intimidation. There, they can vote their consciences.

Cutting Edge: an exhibit of digital art by Susan Breen and fine wood-working by George Thomas

In March, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Cutting Edge, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing Susan Breen’s digital art, one of the newer artistic mediums striving for acceptance into the fine arts community, along with the Arts and Crafts-style furniture by George Thomas, whose work by nature is -- on the "Cutting Edge.”

Is it a photograph?  Is it a painting?  Actually, it’s the best of both.  Artist Susan Breen creates striking digital paintings by supplementing her original photographs with meticulously placed brush strokes using non-traditional artistic tools -- a computer, tablet, stylus and software.  Ranging in style from painterly to impressionistic, Susan captures a variety of inspired local and international subjects.

Inspired by the goal of creating something functional as well as beautiful keeps fine wood-worker George Thomas at the top of his game.  Using a variety of domestic and exotic woods, George designs and builds tables, cabinets, bookshelves, and beds usually in the Arts and Crafts or Mission style.  He is particularly fond of cherry and mahogany, with ebony accents to create contrast and interest.

Meet Susan, George and other gallery artists, enjoy wine and light fare at the Gallery Reception on Saturday, March 21st from 5-8 pm.

Antique jewelry and beautiful hand-made rugs and other textiles will also be for sale. These hand-crafted products come from cottage industries, and we are proud to help preserve South Central Asian cultural heritage by marketing this unique Afghan work.

Help us support these skilled artisans by visiting our Trunk Show anytime during store hours from the 24th to the 26th of October!
