New Urbanist Infill + Outer Suburbs Sprawl = Win-Win For Libby Garvey's Corporate Cronies.


Hey Yupette,
I wondered why Libby Garvey's corporate cronies (e.g. media corporations) are so hostile to Audrey Clement that they're going around stealing Audrey's campaign signs.

But you have to put into the context of where Libby's corporate cronies are deriving their wealth -- both from Smart Growth mega infill in Arlington and mega sprawl in outer suburbs like Stafford County. No wonder the Sun Gazette won't endorse Audrey. She's an Environmentalist. Sun Gazette's staff are chamber of commerce boosters who are selling lots of ads in fast-growing sprawl outer suburbs. And ads for Smart Growth mega-infill here in Arlington. Same for developers. NVR is selling luxury townhouses in gentrified Westover and affordable townhouses in Stafford County, built by NVR's subsidiary, Ryan Homes.

Connected by -- I-95 / I-395 Express Lanes which Libby Garvey and the County Board secretly approved a year ago. Now Libby is sending e-mail to her angry Fairlington neighbors telling them not to worry, VDOT will fix any problems that may arise from 395 Express Lanes. Speaking of transportation to and from Stafford County, let's not forget Congressman Beyer's auto empire.

What have we become? Neverland-on-the-Potomac where the ruling elite govern under a system of social and economic apartheid -- drive from your $50,000 per year job to your affordable home in the outer outer suburbs, and pay $15 one-way for the convenience.

New Urbanism, Smart Growth, Urban Village, Affordable Housing, Car Free Diet. All charades. Libby Garvey and the rest of the County Board are really Chamber of Commerce Republicans who are benefiting from both infill destruction of our neighborhoods and sprawl destruction of agricultural land, forests, and wetlands. Talk about the Clinton Foundation, that's how the County Board operates.

No way do I want to see my quiet Westover neighborhood bulldozed and Clarendoned. No more charades from fast-talking politricksters like Libby Garvey.

Thanks for your blog.

It's the Plutocratic Party. Everything they know they learned from Bill and Hill.

Plutocrats? Do a Web search on the Sun Gazette / Inside Nova Owner and Publisher - Richard L. Connor.

Want to see a snapshot of what the County will look like on a typical April-to-November weekend in 10 years? Today, Saturday, October 29th, with 30,000 more people here for the Marine Corps Marathon.

Their 'planning' for the future -- pack as many people, vehicles, events, activities into the County as possible. Consequences? What are consequences?

Libby is lying to her neighbors about I-395 Express Lanes being 'environmentally friendly'. VDOT and TransUrban bulldozed at least 10,000 mature trees to create Express Lanes on I-95 out to Stafford.

Add the non-residents who heavily use Arlington's Taj Mahal libraries, athletic facilities, parks, playgrounds, community centers, etc.

No, TransUrban and VDOT cut down at least 50,000 mature trees to bulldoze Express Lanes out to Stafford County. The I-95 medians were densely wooded before the trees were removed.

Title "King of American Sprawl" goes to Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos.

Next weekend's the 'Halloween Pub Crawl'. Like this weekend, Arlington Police won't have the resources to protect our neighborhoods, too busy protecting the partyers from themselves.

You forgot all the migrant refugees that former anti-war activists like Bill and Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Libby Garvey are packing into the USA and Arlington as the result of their constant Third World war-fighting. How else are they gonna get taxpayer-subsidized $8.00 per hour labor to clean their mansions?

Media Elite need plenty of low wage refugee immigrant labor to maintain their extravagant lifestyles, at local, state, and federal taxpayers' expense, of course.

Speaking of the Media Elite, I did a Web search on Richard L. Connor. LOL

Congressman Beyer sells a whole range of affordable Kias, Subarus, and Volkswagens that allow Federal workers to commute to the Pentagon from the outer suburbs via Express Lanes, one per vehicle.

Scott McCaffrey and Scott Brodbeck - Which one is commonly referred to as "Sleazy Scott" and which one is commonly referred to as "Slimey Scott"?

Ask around at the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.

Then there's Scott Brodbeck. Who asked Audrey Clement in a Podcast why Arlington "needs" renewable energy,, e.g., on-site solar. Is the guy wired by the Chamber of Commerce, Dominion, and Washington Gas, or what?

At least 100 mature trees per acre on the I-95 medians were destroyed by VDOT and TransUrban to extend the sprawl suburbs to south Spotsylvania. An acre is about 208 feet by 208 feet.

Scott Brodbeck is one of the Region's primary promoters of New Urbanism. Only New Urbanists who have been vetted by Scott are allowed to make comments on his blogs.

Yes, that's correct. Thousands and thousands of mature trees were destroyed on I-95 for Express Lanes.

Northern Virginia Media Services which owns the Sun Gazette and Inside Nova, derives most income from sprawl-related advertising.

We need more CEOs like Elon Musk. We get more CEO's like Rich Connor.

How about this statement from VDOT: "One percent of the vehicles on 395 transport 12% of the commuters"?

 
At 31 October, 2016 , Anonymous Anonymous said...

So what about putting another 1% of vans-trains-buses on I-395 / I-95? Can't do it. Libby's RepubliCrat pals would lose money.

What a bunch of f-ing Urban Village Idiots. Planning for 10,000 more residents in the County by 2026, expecting 30,000 more residents in the County by 2026.
