More news on PWC Doves Landing Park Plan

Just an FYI on the park. Seth at PWC Parks has not and doesn’t intend to change the current Doves Landing plan. This means we must ask the BOCS to amend it with the changes we want when they go to vote.
They will meet and vote on the plan on Tuesday, October 11th at 7:30 p.m. at 1 County Complex Ct. Prince William, VA 22192.  Arrive at 6:30 if you want to speak.  WEAR GREEN
At this point, its best to continue to follow our 3-step action plan and do them again if you haven’t already;
1. Sign the petition and share it. (We have almost 300 plus the 150 we got on the paper petition)
2. Email the BOCS twice a week now through 10/11.
3. Go to the meeting on Oct. 11th at 2 pm., 1 County Complex Ct.

Call to Action on Doves Landing Park – Your Help Is Needed

PWC Parks wants to create a new road, parking lot, and facilities at the end of Doves Lane. This would create a new second park access point down a narrow, quiet gravel road surrounded by private homes. PWCS will not send a bus down Doves Lane because of the bus drivers’ concerns about the road and PWC maintains the road just twice a year due to erosion and washout. There is also no sidewalk for children to use who are forced to walk to the bus pick-up, some as far as .8 miles each way. To see what the Doves Lane road looks like

The current park access point does not have a gate to close the park after dark and neighboring residents consistently report paraphernalia and suspicious activity and persons at the park.

The county contends that the new access point will not create increased traffic but for a dead-end road any traffic open to the general public will be a substantial increase.  Secondly, if the county believes there will be very little increased traffic, why do they believe they need a second parking lot to supplement the parking lot they already have on the paved portion of Doves?

Creating a second parking lot with water access will absolutely increase the traffic on the gravel portion of Doves Lane, which will negatively impact the current dead-end road by eliminating the privacy and security the residents currently have. Given the fact that there is no sidewalk, the neighboring 12 children who have to walk to/from the bus stop on Doves Lane will no doubt be affected by the strangers, trucks, SUVs, and trailers coming down the narrow “unpassable” gravel road.
