County Executive Leggett’s Response to White Oak Master Plan Vote

“I want to thank the County Council for its arduous work in approving a complex plan that lays the foundation for real job growth and the enhancement of the East County as a place to live, work, and raise a family.

“The East County has long been deficient in job location within the County, and this Plan is a huge first step toward addressing that concern. I will continue to work with the Council, businesses, and our East County communities toward fulfilling the vision of a transit-oriented life sciences center.”
