DRCA Asks NVRPA to Hit “Reset Button” on Potomac Overlook Plan

The Donaldson Run Civic Association (DRCA) March 12 issued a letter strongly opposing development plans for Potomac Overlook Regional Park, saying the regional park authority needs to uphold the land’s original purpose as a nature preserve and low-impact recreational park.

The DRCA noted that responses they have received from community residents “were overwhelmingly negative to almost all the proposals” from the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NVRPA), owner of the park, and that their members “believe that the park would best serve the region if its primary function continued to be a nature preserve.”

In addition, the civic association asked the NVRPA board of directors to rescind its vote of November 2012 to depart from its general management plan and approve the controversial development projects. The full letter is online here.
