What's new with slugging and sluglines.

Public Hearing and Vote Tonight! - Have you noticed all of the new apartments on Route 1? Tired of the traffic? Do you have kids in crowded classrooms? Are you concerned about slow police and fire response times with 911 calls? Are you concerned about higher taxes to pay for these and other government services?

If so, please speak at the BOCS meeting on Tuesday night. We need you to say "no more apartments on Route 1. "We don't want 720 more Rivergate apartments." Can you help?

If Rivergate is approved, we will be at 10,000 recently opened, already approved, and planned in Woodbridge on the Route 1 corridor. We will have a glut of apartments if we don't stop this now.

While an email to the Board of Supervisors opposing Rivergate is great, we need you and your neighbors to come and speak in opposition. The public hearing and vote will occur this week at:
