The majority of Prince William County’s tax base comes from its residential properties. As we work to improve our schools and transit options, Prince William County will continue to attract families and young professionals who want to locate here. But we can’t rely solely on new residents as our only source of new revenue. That is why it is important that we prioritize attracting new businesses to our area and support those that are already flourishing.

One of the fastest growing industries in the country is sports tourism for youth sports leagues and tournaments. Many of our youth athletes have to travel outside of Prince William County to compete. We need to make sure that we invest in the proper facilities and infrastructure so that we can become a regional destination for families across the mid-atlantic for youth sports.
The Board of Supervisors also needs to support our agribusinesses here in Prince William County by preserving the land devoted to agricultural and forestal production. This includes protecting our water quality and pollinators and encouraging the sale of locally sourced food and other agricultural products. It is important that we protect the agricultural heritage and natural character that makes Prince William County so unique.
