I think this is growth that this community really needs.But the ploblem is you have people that want everything to stay the same because they are scared that this mAy cause wages to go up so they can`t pad there pockets.So let this community GROW so more people work here not out of town.

I Agree 100%! Their so afraid of change. They want Ashburn to stay small forever. But people, its the 21st Century. Not 1905. Let new companies and infrastructure come in and build the town up. Communites can't rely on agriculture to support them these days.

The City of Ashburn has water, sewer, and gas lines on the east side of Exit 82 and Exit 84. Efforts are underway to discuss the sale of land east of Exit 82 with the current owner.

And what do they plan to do with it, if they sucessfully acquire the land?
