We the citizens of Potomac Green, a Del Webb Community of Ashburn and surrounding neighborhoods of One Loudoun petition the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to deny Miller & Smith and its affiliated companies the rezoning of the One Loudoun mixed community project to allow for a multipurpose sports and entertainment stadium.
We petition that the stadium not be built on the basis that activities that are planned to take place will cause a sustained and excessive nuisance and will have a permanent negative impact to the health, comfort, and welfare of the citizens in the surrounding communities. Negative impacts include but are not limited to excessive and sustained noise caused by up to 10,000 spectators, a permanent stadium-wide high volume sound system, high-volume concert sound system, high intensity lighting systems, traffic noise, and a system of roads designed to handle neighborhood traffic that are not capable of handling the high volume of vehicles entering and exiting the stadium during planned events. Furthermore, the additional traffic will only add to an already difficult and worsening traffic problem along Route 7.
The Kincora development, the original approved location for the stadium by the Board of Supervisors was designed to accommodate a multi-purpose stadium and its accompanying traffic load. In addition, consideration for approval of such rezoning without neutral and unbiased impact studies for traffic, noise, safety and illumination, and open and transparent meetings with the residents of the surrounding communities would be an unacceptable and irresponsible action on the Board’s part.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
