Loudoun County will pay $1.08 million for property next to the Sterling Community Center, allowing the center to grow.
“To me, this thing couldn’t go far enough, so I’m very thrilled that we’re going to be purchasing this land,” said Sterling supervisor Koran T. Saines (D).
Saines said there are a lot of possibilities with an expanded Sterling Community Center.
“I would love to get more space to have a computer lab, possibly, a classroom, a bigger meeting space where we could do self-defense, yoga classes, more meetings for people to continue to get together,” Saines said. The center stays busy, he said, and more space could mean more activities.
