ANOTHER VICTORY  —  The Bi-County Parkway (BCP), a north-south non-solution to western Prince William County’s east-west commuting nightmare, but a future boon to residential developers who wish to build throughout the Rural Crescent, has been removed from the county’s Comprehensive Plan.  Thanks to the PWC Planning Commission for its unanimous vote on 17 February 2016 to remove BCP from the Comp Plan.  Thanks to the PWC Board of County Supervisors’ Peter Candland, Jeanine Lawson, Maureen Caddigan, and Ruth Anderson for deciding the issue in a 4-3 vote on 15 March 2016.  And thanks to the many citizens and neighbors of the Rural Crescent who fought hard for a long time to stop BCP.    Happy Easter and Passover to all.
