Dear Supervisor Shawn Williams,
Thank you for all the great work you are doing.
I am a soon-to-be resident of One Loudoun, waiting for my home construction to finish sometime in January. I am moving from McLean, VA, to Ashburn and looking very much forward to it.
I have been following the discussions on the new stadium. I read both sides of the argument.
At first, I was against it, thinking it would cause much ruckus in the area. But then I learned that it will be built in place of an office building employing a few thousand people. I realized then that it will actually relieve the morning rush hour and, to a little less extent, the after-work rush hour.
I would much rather prefer the occasional off-hour traffic caused from the ball park in exchange for the regular rush hour traffic that is expected to emerge as the area develops further.
I am a little less concerned about the potential noise coming from a ballpark that is 1/8th the size of the Nationals ballpark.
I also welcome the added benefit of culturally enriching the area with the sports and musical activities and the economic boost it will provide for the area.
So, I support you in your support of the ballpark so long as all the concerns about noise, traffic and lighting are resolved.
Keep up all the great work you and your team are doing Supervisor Williams. Thank you.
Mr. Bera A.
A New One Loudoun Resident
