The Board of Supervisors will hold a Transit Summit next Monday and a Transportation Summit on Thursday, June 29. Both meetings will take place at 5 p.m. at Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison St., S.E. in Leesburg.
At the May 22 Transit Summit, staff members from the Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure will provide the board with an overview of the county’s current transit and commuter services and plans for those services after the Silver Line begins operation in Loudoun County.
The Transit Summit is designed for supervisors to instruct the county staff on priorities for planning future transit and commuter services, including the commuter, Metro Connection, local, and paratransit bus services. The Transit Development Plan, adopted by the board last year, also will be discussed.
At the Transportation Summit, supervisors will discuss the progress the county is making toward one of the board’s strategic goals: to develop a safe, affordable and effective transportation network that serves the community. The board will hear updates on current road projects, the construction of Phase 2 of the Metrorail Silver Line in Loudoun, and proposed updates to the Countywide Transportation Plan being considered as part of the Envision Loudoun initiative to revise the Comprehensive Plan.
