Loudoun County’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan
Loudoun County has developed a draft of a new comprehensive plan that will shape our growth, land use, transportation and environmental sustainability for decades to come. Read the Planning Commission’s 2040 draft plan.
The new plan sounds nice, but…
The draft plan eliminates many of the protections that are currently in place for our Green Infrastructure. It includes vague statements that do not differentiate Loudoun’s unique character from any other place, and that will not adequately protect our natural assets.
Read Loudoun Wildlife’s Comprehensive Plan position statement and Loudoun Preservation and Conservation Coalition’s new comprehensive plan review committee’s report on the draft plan, which includes in Chapter 3 recommendations on policies to strengthen protections for our natural assets.
The comprehensive plan’s policies must be specific, with measurable goals and time frames for achieving them.
