Don't Fairfax Prince William

It looks like traditionally blue-collar Prince William is getting a little big for its britches:
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors is considering a countywide ban on boats, trailers, motor homes and RVs on public streets.

On Tuesday the board voted, 7 to 1, to authorize a public hearing on the proposed widespread prohibition. Thomas Bruun, assistant director of public works, recommended that the hearing be held in 60 days.

By law, the board can hold a public hearing within two weeks, but the Department of Public Works believes that more time is needed to inform the public about the proposal, Bruun said.

The measure would bar commercial vehicles -- such as dump trucks, concrete trucks and food and beverage trucks -- from street parking in residential districts.

Looks like there's enough questions with the other members of the board. I don't think it's a fait accompli. I'd much rather see this stick in the HOA governing process. My neighborhood streets could not handle any such parking, and that's why we ban it ourselves and go through our own process. But what's good for us clearly isn't the best for Supervisor Covington's constituents.
