Apparently Mr. Delgaudio has a differing view from the rest of the Loudoun Board of Supervisors on whether the Toll Road into Loudoun is worth it. “Schools and police stations” are his priority, so his “Nay” vote was the only dissenter in the vote to approve Loudoun’s portion of funding for the Dulles Rail project
Seeing as Loudoun has a pretty awkward and quickly growing traffic problem, my hunch is that the three train stations we’d get in Loudoun would probably ease a little bit of the pressure, and from what I can tell from the article, Loudoun’s responsibility of 4.8% seems pretty reasonable seeing as 3 of the 11 stations will be in Loudoun.
Something else confuses me. The article states:
Loudoun’s money is expected to come from revenues from a program called Business Professional and Occupational licenses.
BPOL is treated like something new. The article says nothing more about it. Isn’t that state-wide in every municipality, and hasn’t that been around for a while?
