Angry residents stand to lose homes, shut out of county meeting

About 50 people who had hoped to speak to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors were turned away.

The county's top elected officials held their meeting in a small conference room on Tuesday, September 15. The room was outside of the eight-member board's regular meeting chambers, and due to coronavirus restrictions, seating inside the conference room was limited to less than 20 people.

Meanwhile, dozens of mostly Hispanic residents who stand to lose their homes due to the planned four-lane extension of Godwin Drive in Manassas -- which would create a bypass around the heavily-congested Route 28 -- say they were shut out.
