OPINION/LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Bill Wright

Below is an incomplete list of organizations and individuals registered as opposing the Prince William digital gateway. I say incomplete because there is thousands of individual citizens who could be added to this list. (I invite them to write to you and their other elected officials and the media to share their own thoughts.)

That’s a lot of collective wisdom. Hope the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, QTS and Compass will reconsider their attempts to ruin our community before November 1st vote.

This is an opinion piece by the author.

Bristow Beat opposes the Prince William Digital Gateway in its current form as recommended by the Prince William Planning Commission. Changes to the Offset Plan Amendment would eliminate the proposed natural buffers and increase the visibility of the Manassas Battlefield National Park data centers. In addition, the approval process lacked transparency.
