In 1998 PWC Supervisors adopted a Comprehensive Plan that formally established an urban growth boundary, the Rural Crescent. Their intent was to strengthen the County’s capacity to control urban sprawl.

An urban growth boundary is designed to accomplish many goals, including to safeguard open space and agricultural land from sprawl development. They also seek to encourage smart growth and provide predictable approaches to capital investment and development.

Prince William is at a crossroads. After 20 years, the basic concept of our urban growth boundary is still in place. By continuing to support the Rural Crescent, county leaders can promote investment in areas that might otherwise be left behind and put the county in the best position for a positive future.

Speakers include:

  • Tom Eitler is the Senior Vice President for the Urban Land Institute and former PWC Chief of Long-range Planning when the Rural Crescent was adopted.
  • Mike May is the managing partner of May Law LLP and served on the Occoquan District on the Board of Supervisors from 2007 to 2016
  • Melinda Masters, Nokesville Civic Association
  • Charlie Grymes, Prince William Conservation Alliance
  • Elena Schlossberg, Prince William Conservation Alliance

Sponsored by Prince William Conservation Alliance, Northern Virginia Community College and MidCounty Civic Association with Nokesville Civic Association, Coalition to Protect Prince William, Lake Ridge Occoquan Coles Civic Association, and Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association
