Re: True North Data Center Rezoning Request, ZMAP-2017-0003, ZMOD-2017-0011
I am a member of the board of the Goose Creek Association. As an organization with over 500 members in Loudoun and Fauquier Counties, we are dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment and quality of life in the Goose Creek Watershed and ensuring the integrity of Goose Creek itself. I am writing today to urge that you PLEASE VOTE TO DENY THE TRUE NORTH REZONING APPLICATION, scheduled for final vote on January 2, 2018.
The True North Data center rezoning decision now pits vital resource protection against potential revenues, the stream of which is likely be replaced by continued data center development in areas of the county now zoned and prepared to host such a use. To approve this untimely and ill-warranted rezoning request is to bow unnecessarily to accommodate an industry already provided with multiple site options available without resort to rezoning.
For decades, Loudoun County residents have chosen to conserve and restore natural areas and streamside filters. Natural filters are a safe and economical way to promote clean water for both recreation and drinking. The Goose Creek Association has worked with its members and supporters to provide education and opportunities for all of us to help in this important effort. We ask you, the elected representatives of the individuals and families who live in and love their County, please join with us in that commitment to protect our irreplaceable and threatened water resources, protect Goose Creek, DENY the True North rezoning application. All Loudoun residents and visitors will thank you for protecting our state scenic river.
With sincere regards,
