Dear Route 28 Stakeholder,

As a follow up to the Route 28 Stakeholders workshops held March 19 & March 20, 2010 at Claude Moore Park Recreation Center in Sterling, attached please find a summary of workshop comments. [ed. note: comments not provided to Webmaster for posting] Over 50 persons attended and actively participated in the workshops. The workshops were structured to be interactive and included breakouts into small working groups. Handwritten participant comments, a list of attendees, and other workshop materials are available for review in the Loudoun County Planning Department, 1 Harrison Street, S.E., Leesburg, Virginia, 20177.

The next workshop is scheduled for April 26, 2010, 8:30-11:00a.m. at Claude Moore Park Recreation Center. A reminder email and agenda for the April workshop will be sent next week.

Conceptual Themes

At the workshops, participants were asked to discuss three land use concepts to help determine which concept will maximize the commercial potential of sites, lead to higher value and more intense uses, and generate the greatest economic benefit in the corridor. The three concepts presented provide a continuum of increasing land development options and include: Existing Policies Retained in the Route 28 Corridor (Concept 1), Route 28 Includes a Greater Variety of Employment Uses (No Residential) (Concept 2), and Route 28 Corridor Policies Emphasize a Mixed Use Pattern that Balances Employment, Retail and Residential Uses (Concept 3). These concepts were not intended to be mutually exclusive but rather build upon each other.

There were several conceptual themes that emerged from the workshop discussions:

  • Retain Route 28 as an employment-based corridor, but broaden employment opportunities and respect existing businesses;
  • Create a sense of place, community identity and recognize community centers offering commercial and civic services and amenities for employees;
  • Limit residential to type and location that best supports employment uses;
  • Take advantage of existing and planned transportation infrastructure and proximity to Washington Dulles International Airport;
  • Include opportunities for multi-modal connectivity, including transit;
  • Eliminate or reduce opportunities for future Destination Retail uses;
  • Focus corridor development on form and design rather than use; and,
  • Integrate sustainable development practices into design.

Upcoming April Workshop

Based on input from the Stakeholders at the March workshops, staff is in the process of developing alternative land use pattern maps and other background materials to facilitate discussions for the upcoming April 26th workshop.

As a reminder, all documents related to CPAM 2009-0001, Keynote Employment Policies Comprehensive Plan Amendment, including numerous maps of the Route 28 Corridor, are available at www.loudoun.gov/route28.
