Conservation Coalition to Host Comprehensive Plan Town Hall Meeting

The Loudoun Preservation and Conservation Coalition will lead a community meeting Oct. 23 to provide detailed information about how the proposed Loudoun 2040 Comprehensive Plan could impact the county’s rural character and historic resources.

The meeting, sponsored by the Mosby Heritage Area Association, will be held at the Bluemont Community Center starting at 6:30 p.m.

The county is working to rewrite its comprehensive plan, the long-term guide to growth, development, and transportation in Loudoun. A committee of community stakeholders and special interest representatives has put together a first draft; the plan is now under review at the county Planning Commission.

The coalition has compiled a slideshow exploring growth projections from the current draft plan and warning that the county’s quality of life is threatened by development, traffic and continued growth. The Mosby Heritage Area Association and the Loudoun Preservation and Conservation Coalition are asking the residents to get more involved with the review process and to urge the Board of Supervisors to permit more community input into the plan.

Re: True North Data Center Rezoning Request, ZMAP-2017-0003, ZMOD-2017-0011

Dear Supervisor

Protecting and preserving the environment and quality of life in the Goose Creek Watershed and ensuring the integrity of Goose Creek itself is a matter of critical importance to residents and visitors of Loudoun County. I am writing today to ask that you PLEASE VOTE TO DENY THIS REZONING APPLICATION, scheduled for final vote on January18, 2018.

The True North Data center rezoning decision now pits vital resource protection against potential revenues. This stream of revenue is likely be replaced by continued data center development in areas of the county now zoned and prepared to host such a use. To approve this untimely and ill-warranted rezoning request is to bow unnecessarily to accommodate an industry already provided with multiple site options available without resort to rezoning.

Goose Creek is a valuable source of drinking water for Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. I ask you, the elected representatives of the individuals and families who live in and love this County, please vote to protect our irreplaceable and threatened water resources, protect Goose Creek, Deny the True North rezoning application. All Loudoun residents and visitors will thank you for protecting our state scenic river.

With sincere regards,
