Letter from Supervisor Andrea McGimsey

Print PDF

Andrea McGimsey was elected to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in November 2007 and is the Potomac District representative. She wrote the following letter to her constituents regarding the Kincora stadium development plans.

Dear Neighbors,

Thank you to the many citizens who shared their thoughts with me about the Kincora stadium proposal.

On Tuesday the Board of Supervisors voted to approve the Kincora stadium proposal. Supervisor Burton and I voted no; Supervisor Miller abstained.

I wanted to share with you the comments I made before our vote:

I commend the developer on a masterful campaign to gain support on the Board of Supervisors. However, I am not convinced that the developer has gained the support of the community, especially the residents in my district who will be directly impacted. Although many of my constituents love the idea of a minor league baseball in Loudoun, - and by the way, I am one of those people - there are many more citizens who are concerned about the negative impacts of this proposal for this stadium at this location. Both the number of emails I received and the substance of the concerns were greater. Based on the feedback I have received from my community, I will vote no on this specific proposal. I look forward to a future proposal to bring baseball to Loudoun, one that I can support.

This stadium will be built at the intersection of our two major limited access highways that do not have tolls. Where two highways intersect, traffic merges, and cars by necessity slow down. It is the first place that traffic problems show up. Traffic projections for these corridors are for terrible levels of service in the coming years. We are not making a decision for the next five years. We are making a decision that will impact at least the next 50 years, and we must take these projections into account.

Brian Harpster with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and Debbie Hawk, Aide to Andrea McGimsey, our Potomac District Supervisor, will be in attendance.
