The second round of public workshops on the county’s long-range master plan kicks off Monday in Leesburg.
County planners and members of the Board of Supervisors-appointed comprehensive plan stakeholders committee will be gathering input on where Loudouners want to see their county go at Harper Park Middle School at 7 p.m.
The first round of Envision Loudoun input over the winter included six workshops. The county had originally scheduled four, and added two more after a strong showing at those meetings. One member of the stakeholders committee that is guiding comprehensive plan work, Tuscarora High School teacher Wendy Yacoub, also helped organize a day of input from high school students.
During that first outreach effort, hundreds of people turned out to give their views on the county’s future community development priorities, and the county tallied more than 900 people at in-person sessions and more than 500 people giving their thoughts online at envision-loudoun.com. A database of the nearly 5,000 ideas recorded during those meetings and the online input, collected by county planners has been organized and made available by the Loudoun Preservation and Conservation Coalition on its website.
Since then, county planners and the committee have been at work putting together the top-level vision and goals for the county’s new comprehensive plan, which will guide growth and development in the county for years to come.
The county has shaved those six meetings down to five in this round. The Envision Loudoun workshops will be:
- Monday, June 5, at Harper Park Middle School in Leesburg, 7 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 7, at Cascades Senior Center in Sterling, 7 p.m.
- Monday, June 12, at Broad Run High School in Ashburn, 7 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 13, at Harmony Middle School in Hamilton, 7:30 p.m.
- Thursday, June 15, at Mercer Middle School in Aldie, 7 p.m.
Registration at all meetings begins a half-hour before the meeting.
