Loudoun County Kicks off Envision Loudoun

By October 18, 2016News

Loudoun County is kicking off an 18-month initiative called Envision Loudoun, which will result in a New Comprehensive Plan. The plan will serve as the county government’s guiding document for land use and development in the foreseeable future.

Members of the public are invited to attend one of four Listening and Learning workshops in November. Each meeting will follow the same format where participants are provided with an opportunity to discuss Loudoun County’s future and to share ideas through interactive activities in casual, small-group settings. All workshops are scheduled from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

  • Monday, November 7, 2016: National Conference Center, 18980 Upper Belmont Place, Leesburg
  • Monday, November 14, 2016: Washington Dulles Airport Marriott, 45020 Aviation Drive, Sterling
  • Tuesday, November 15, 2016:  Clarion Inn Historic Leesburg, 1500 East Market Street, Leesburg
  • Wednesday, November 16, 2016: J. Michael Lunsford Middle School, 26020 Ticonderoga Road

The November meetings are the first of several rounds of community engagement opportunities. Input from the community during these meetings will be used by a 26-member Stakeholders Comprehensive Plan Committee and county staff to form the foundation of Envision Loudoun. Subsequent phases include developing a new vision to guide and effectively manage future growth and development and adopting a New Comprehensive Plan.

“This is a truly exciting opportunity,” said Department of Planning and Zoning Director Ricky Barker. “Envision Loudoun is an open, inclusive process that connects and engages people to provide meaningful opportunities to influence the future of our county.”

The Envision Loudoun effort will have a lasting impact on the Loudoun community, helping to promote a continued high quality of life in the county. Envision Loudoun will address growth, land use, transportation, community facilities and amenities, economic development, and fiscal management.

Envision Loudoun includes a project-specific website focused on community engagement and public participation. Find out more at www.envision-loudoun.org.
