Kaine Would Give Counties Like Fairfax the Right to Curb Growth
The Democratic candidate for Virginia governor, Tim Kaine, said Monday that he would give local governments the authority to reject rezoning requests by developers if the proposals overwhelm the transportation system. www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/10/AR2005101001497.html
In other words, if a developer proposed a rezoning, the local elected officials could reject it if they believed the development would overwhelm the local road system. The thing is, Kaine as governor still would have to get such a proposal through the General Assembly.
