Growth, Development & Traffic
Citizen input in planning for Loudoun’s future is critical -- particularly when some are pushing for more residential development at a faster pace than the county and general public have planned for.
Envision Loudoun Workshop

 

Remember taking civics or government in high school? Sometimes, it may feel fairly irrelevant to your day to day life...But then you think about traffic, taxes, school boundary changes, parks and recreation, social services, where you work or shop, the water you drink or the natural resources you care about. All of these are heavily impacted by decisions made by local government.  This summer, you have a chance to affect Loudoun County’s approach to growth and development for years to come. This text was taken from an email alert we sent out on June 2, 2017.

The Comprehensive Plan Stakeholder Committee has been on a semi-monthly schedule of meetings since March, in an effort to be prepared for the next round of Envision Loudoun workshops for resident input scheduled for the first half of June.

Loudoun has the opportunity to provide clear and coherent direction on future investment. In a spring 2017 letter to Chairman Randall and the Board of Supervisors, we joined with partners in recommending: 1) The County’s first priority should be to foster mixed-use, higher density transit-oriented development (TOD) and the focus for TOD should be the Ashburn Station. And 2) The proposed PD-TC zoning change should be put on hold until the Comprehensive Plan process has determined community priorities for the level and location of growth.

The answers to this question and two follow-up questions posed during the Envision Loudoun “Listening and Learning” round of public input have been tallied and categorized by theme. More than 1,400 people provided over 5,000 comments through 6 live meetings, online participation and phone input. 8 primary themes and many other sub-themes have emerged.

The deadline is Wednesday, January 11, 2017. The comments gathered as part of Envision Loudoun will guide the 2018 update of the County Comprehensive Plan. The plan represents the community's vision for the future and is the most important document regarding land use, transportation and resource utilization.

Loudoun County is beginning the critical (but arduous) task of revising its Comprehensive Plan. The plan represents the community's vision for the future and is the most important document regarding land use, transportation and resource utilization. It guides all decisions and regulations regarding growth and development.
