Please Oppose the Development by MOJAX, LLC in historic St. Louis, VA
We, the following concerned residents, strongly oppose the proposed 30-house Middleburg Preserves development in historic St. Louis, VA by MOJAX LLC. Please join our strong opposition to this housing development. The 19-acre property in question is located in the rural and historic village of St. Louis, the first (and largest) African-American community in Loudoun County after the Civil War. Some of this property is wetlands and has an African American cemetery on it, with 50+ graves. Further research needs to be done on the cemetery and the effects that 30 additional houses will have on the water table in St Louis (a village unfortunately known for sub-standard wells).
The proposed development borders on two sides the historic Mt. Zion Baptist Church, founded in 1885, and is a short distance from the historic Banneker Elementary School, erected in 1948 for African-American children from Middleburg and nearby Marble Quarry. The time for us to act on this is now!
By signing, you consent to your name being used publicly in the opposition. We hope that you will also want a yard sign for your property to proudly show your opposition.

We need your support, prayers and help to oppose MOJAX LLC. and this 30-house development.
