‘Overlooking the land he loved’

Dick was one of Virginia’s early advocates for sensible and managed growth. He saw the link between ecology and economy, the value of farmland and open space, the worth of preserving and protecting natural resources. He wrote and implemented local ordinances to advance those goals. […]
