Loudoun County planners are gearing up for an 18-month initiative to update the comprehensive plan.
Now dubbed Envision Loudoun, the project will update the long-term community development goals for the entire county. Public input will be a big part of the effort and that outreach starts early next month.
Members of the public are invited to attend one of four “listening and learning” workshops where participants will be provided with an opportunity to discuss Loudoun’s future and to share ideas through interactive activities in casual, small-group settings. All workshops are scheduled from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
- Monday, Nov. 7: National Conference Center, 18980 Upper Belmont Place, Lansdowne;
- Monday, Nov. 14: Washington Dulles Airport Marriott, 45020 Aviation Drive, Sterling;
- Tuesday, Nov. 15: Clarion Inn Historic Leesburg, 1500 E. Market St., Leesburg; and
- Wednesday, Nov. 16: J. Michael Lunsford Middle School, 26020 Ticonderoga Road, Chantilly.
Those sessions will be the first of several rounds of community engagement opportunities. Input from meetings will be used by the 26-member Stakeholders Comprehensive Plan Committee and the county staff to form the foundation of Envision Loudoun.
Those leading the process want to make sure residents understand they can have an impact on decisions affecting growth, land use, transportation, community facilities and amenities, economic development, and fiscal management.
“This is a truly exciting opportunity,” Department of Planning and Zoning Director Ricky Barker stated. “Envision Loudoun is an open, inclusive process that connects and engages people to provide meaningful opportunities to influence the future of our county.”
