We are private citizens who are concerned about a proposed Stafford County government downzoning action on A-1 zoned land & its negative impact on private property values & property taxes for county residents. 

We support private property rights & managed growth that does not rob Stafford County citizens of their investment in & ownership rights of private land.

Stafford Co. Property Owners:

Your property values

& future taxes are at risk!

A proposed zoning change expected in May 2019:

 

Diminishes property values

Negatively impacts land investment &

Leads to higher taxes for all!

THE PROBLEM:

 

A current proposal to downzone A-1 rural land in Stafford County:

  • Lowers rural property values by as much as 50%

  • Restricts use of private land & private property rights

  • Leads to tax increases for all Stafford residents

 How Downzoning Destroys Land Values - 2018 Study

The Board of Supervisors is Expected to Take Action in MAY 2019!

PUBLIC INPUT IS CRITICAL BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

TAKE ACTION NOW!

 

3 Simple Steps:

1.

Contact Your Supervisors

 

TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TO VOTE NO to DOWNZONING & to consider better options that will

manage county growth, protect our property rights & prevent major tax increases!

Contact Board of Supervisors

Contact Planning Commission

CALL THE STAFFORD COUNTY PLANNING & ZONING DEPARTMENT: 540-658-8668

2.

Sign the Petition

 

The county is looking for public input & opinions on this important issue.

Join us to promote community planning that protects property rights & keeps taxes low!

3.

Attend & Speak at Board & Community Meetings

 

SPEAK OUT! Downzoning devalues land, reduces revenue to the county which gets passed on to other property owners in the form of higher taxes & other consequences.

YOUR OPINION MATTERS!

 

This issue is not about developers or environmentalists or "healthy growth",

this is about protecting individual property rights, managing growth in a way that protects the land investment of Stafford's hard working families & keeps tax increases under control.
