Letter: Who Wins in Great Falls

To the Editor:

(Regarding "Petition Halts Senior Housing Development at Cornwell Farm," Great Falls Connection, February 12-18, 2014).

Winds in the east, mist coming in. Like somethin’ is brewin’ and bout to begin. Can't put my finger on what lies in store, but I fear what's to happen … all happened before (look all around Northern Virginia.)

Wasn’t the developer’s application to re-zone historic Cornwell Farm to build high density housing for seniors a joke? The developer knew it would not be successful—this time around. But can we rest on our laurels? The developer is still looking to build somewhere in Great Falls. There is a different proposal to build an art center on Turner Farm. Build baby build. We won the battle, but who will win the war?
