The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors initiated the plan amendment process for properties around the two Loudoun Metro stations on March 17.  The board’s motion included plan boundaries, shown above, and a detailed schedule leading to adoption of a plan amendment in November 2016.  The eight phase process will allow landowners to present ideas for future development.

The county planning staff is recommending adoption of a form-based code to regulate development within the small area plan, along with urban design guidelines and recommendations for changes to the Countywide Transportation Plan.  Staff noted it intends to have Shellhorn Road and adjacent roads reflect the alignments previously endorsed by the Board.

Stakeholder meetings will begin in April and interested property owners need to engage early.
