My name is Mike Cooper and as a citizen of the Commonwealth, I am concerned that the technical mandates in the proposed stormwater regulations have not been well conceived with adequate input from technical experts and those most affected.
While everyone supports cleaning up the Bay and protecting our groundwater, we do not need poorly conceived regulations which encourage suburban sprawl and discourage high quality, sustainable development. The "one size fits all" approach is too simplistic, particularly in densely populated areas such as Northern VA.
