Biographical or historical data
  • The Disney Company's plan to create a theme park, "Disney's America," near Haymarket, Prince William County, Virginia, met with resistance of residents and environmental groups. One of these groups, the Piedmont Environmetal Council, won a lawsuit against Governor George Allen in 1994, as a result of which the state government records pertaining to the planning of Disney's America had to be released under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act.
  • The Piedmont Environmental Council was founded in 1972 by a group of citizens, to further public participation in environmental issues in the region of Piedmont, Virginia.
