This is CBPA part two. Now all those things that they’ve been just issuing licenses to do in “rural” Loudoun, they want to establish some…ahem…guidelines. The Leesburg Today Article:

The uses would require the legislative review in areas zoned agricultural, transitional and the Joint Land Management Area with the western towns.
