Letter: Waterfront Struggle Not Over

To the Editor:

Fear not, the fight for the Alexandria Waterfront is not over. Best case scenario: The court will require the City to accept the more than 200 petitions it refused to consider.

Worst case scenario: There will still be determined resistance to rampant, high density development in an already overcrowded National Historic Area, on a case by case basis.

It is also possible that members of City Council who voted against a second look at the so-called "plan" will realize that they have created a potent political issue which will resonate throughout Alexandria, and come to their senses. It is never too late to repent.
