Watching it live on Channel 16 -- http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/cable/channel16/asx/live_stream.asx

The Board has listed off every single land-use and transportation issue that have been raised from the very beginning. This is an amazing thing to observe!

AH!! Motion to block the expansion just FAILED. Looks like my headline is totally wrong!?

Now *that's* the Fairfax County I expected to see today.

Pat Herrity introduced a motion to block the expansion, and he cited a long list of complaints which we're all familiar with. An increase in traffic fatalities, development out of character with the surrounding area, development in an environmentally-protected region of land, the surrounding communities being 100% against the expansion, etc.

After seeing a number of Supervisors agree with the text of the motion, I wrongly assumed that it stood a good chance of passing.

Heh. I forgot what county we live in.

The supervisors turned around and killed Herrity's motion 6-4, and then proceeded to introduce and approve a counter-motion on the same lines.

The good news out of all of this is that if any of you ffxu'ers run a private school here in the county, it should be trivially easy to get any project you want approved at this point.

Right?

So muslims bully the county supervisors into getting their way.

Classic.

Oh: The supervisors bullied *themselves* into it. One cannot become this bend-over-backwards PC overnight, after all.

Pathetic Board of Supervisors. Selling out this Nation, and our Way of Life, one Acre at a time.

How much money has the Saudi government contributed to Fairfax County politicians?

These Fairfax officials should be ashamed of themselves. This is appalling that they permit this to happen. The Saudis are laughing about it, probably. Silly American politicians.
