As part of an initiative to develop a new comprehensive plan for the economic expansion of Loudoun County, Dr. Julie Leidig, provost of Northern Virginia Community College’s Loudoun Campus has been appointed to serve on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Stakeholders Committee.
On April 23, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors endorsed a Plan Charter for the development of a new comprehensive plan. The Plan Charter is described as a road map to develop a new comprehensive plan for the county. The comprehensive plan will serve as a guide for the future actions of the Loudoun community, including long-term goals and objectives for all activities that affect the local government. This will include guidance on how to make decisions on public and private land development proposals, the expenditure of public funds for infrastructure and how to address farmland preservation or the redevelopment of older areas within the county.
As a part of the planning process, the Board of Supervisors has commissioned a stakeholders committee to assist the Board, Planning Commission and county staff with developing the new comprehensive plan. This stakeholder committee consists of 26 members, representing a broad range of citizens, community groups and interests. Collectively each member will work with Loudoun’s county staff to develop a draft of the new comprehensive plan to submit to the Planning Commission and Board for review and adoption. Leidig was chosen as the representative for the Northern Virginia Community College Board.
Leidig’s commitment to assist in shaping the revitalization of the nation’s fifth fastest growing county is an honor she happily accepted.
“By serving on the committee, I hope to come to a deeper understanding of the hopes and aspirations of Loudoun County residents,” Leidig said. “I also hope to learn as much as I can about planning for the communities of the future. Through my participation, I hope that NOVA can contribute to a great quality of life and vibrant economic future for the county.”
