Kincora approved by Loudoun BoS, 6-2

The Kincora development I wrote about yesterday came before the Loudoun Board of Supervisors at today’s meeting and the BoS voted to approve the zoning changes needed to allow the development to proceed.

Loudoun County supervisors on Tuesday approved zoning changes that would allow a 5,500-seat minor league baseball stadium and a mixed-use office and retail complex to be built at Routes 28 and 7.

The board’s endorsement of the project, part of the planned Kincora Village, came with at least 50 conditions of approval that addressed environmental impacts, open space requirements and road improvements.

The vote was 6-2 in favor of approval with Stevens Miller (D-Dulles) abstaining and Andrea McGimsey (D-Potomac) and Jim Burton (I-Blue Ridge) voting against. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Supervisor McGimsey’s vote was hardly unexpected. With the decision made I would like to see all of the Supervisors taking whatever actions are necessary to ensure the development is done as it was specified by the builder and that all the promises made by the builder regarding building schedules be kept.
