That road isn't prepared enough to support a ballpark of that magnitude. I'm glad it is not being built there and will continue supporting Ellmore's Garden Center as I always have.

Good for Ellmore's Garden Center. We need to help small business's in Loudoun. - Yes I have kids that play soccer, but their soccer career does not cloud my judgment.

I think that the Ellmore's Garden Center is a bit suck in there ways. There must be a way to have the field with lights and the poinsettias still get the darkness they need. Doesn't seem fair really that they wouldn't want to support the community versus just whining that their plants might not grow as well. Seems a waste for the money to go to Franklin Park also they already have everything they need there. If anything, I think that they should put up the lights but not use them and continue to fight to be able to use them.

To all that want to LIGHT up! Go move to the CITY!!!

Most of us moved to places OUT HERE to get away from the light..

This is another example of new comers NOT caring about a local business. Its all about THEIR conveniences.

Isnt this a time in NEED to conserve ENERGY.

Did you not support STOP PATH?

People with City ideas need to stay in the CITY! period!!! The End.

Maybe they need to think about how much taxes are. Whom did they think would end up paying for the lights, maintenance and the power they suck up?
