There will be a new, but familiar face, at the dais for the next meeting of Leesburg’s Board of Architectural Review.
The Town Council on Tuesday appointed John R. Roberts to a four-year term on the panel. Roberts served as Loudoun’s county attorney from 1989 until his retirement in 2014. In addition to his University of Washington law degree, Roberts holds a bachelor’s degree in city planning from the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture. Roberts has lived in the town’s historic district since 1990.
He takes the seat long held by architect Dieter R. Meyer, who served 12 years, including stints as chairman and vice chairman. Meyer had served as Katie Hammler’s appointee. She was not re-elected to the Town Council last fall.
Richard Koochagian was re-appointed to the board. Roberts’ and Koochagian’s terms expire Dec. 31, 2020.
In other appointments on Tuesday, the council added Kimberly N. Pollock, of the Country Club neighborhood to the Standing Residential Traffic Committee and Peter M. Hill, of Beauregard Estates, to the Technology and Communications Commission. Their terms also run through 2020.
