County rezones portion of Ashburn development
Despite a recommendation from county planning staff to deny the application, Loudoun's Board of Supervisors on Sept. 4 narrowly approved the rezoning of more than 13 acres within Ashburn's University Center development from commercial to residential.
The rezoning, which passed on a 5-3-1 vote, will allow 95 townhomes at the site.
Vice Chairman Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run) and Supervisors Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) and Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) opposed the rezoing. Supervisor Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge) abstained.
Williams said he doesn't think his constituents are interested in more townhouses in Ashburn.
