Silver Line Planning Workshop Set for June 29

Silver Line Planning Workshop Set for June 29

With the anticipated opening of Metro’s Silver Line Phase 2 only about four years away, county elected officials and planners have begun revamping the land use plans around Loudoun’s planned Metro stations to provide guidance for future land use decisions.

The public is invited to a presentation and workshop on June 29, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Moorefield Station Elementary School as part of the Silver Line Small Area Plan initiated by the Loudoun Board of Supervisors in March.

The Silver Line will provide stops not only at Dulles International Airport, but also along the Greenway near Route 606 (Loudoun Gateway Station) and Ashburn Village Parkway (Ashburn Station). The planning exercise aims to attract the most desirable development possible.

During the June 29 workshop, members of the county planning staff will present a draft land use plan based on input given during the Silver Line Land Use Scenario Planning Study in 2015. Then member of the public will be asked to weigh in on the draft plan as well as to offer their own suggestions.

Preliminary information will be posted around June 22 on the county’s project page, to give residents the opportunity to review it before the workshop.
