Owners of property adjacent to Leesburg Executive Airport have filed a lawsuit challenging the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors' recent decision to deny the Crosstrail rezoning application. Filed on Aug. 15 with Loudoun County Circuit Court, the civil suit claims the board's action was "unreasonable" and "capricious" in denying the rezoning of nearly 500 acres southeast of Leesburg.The Board of Supervisors is currently involved in at least three lawsuits: Fields Farm, the NVTA appeal, and now a lawsuit over Crosstrail. And if the County starts denying residents public services, we can expect a few more. The last time a locality spent its time and money pushing an ideological agenda through the court system the taxpayers of that district wound up paying millions when they lost. There are better uses for our County tax dollars than lawsuits and appeals.
