Community Meeting – Belmont Ridge Road Widening Project

Last year the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors approved funding to widen Belmont Ridge Road to four lanes between Broadlands Boulevard and Truro Parish Drive.  This widening project will include a traffic signal at the intersection of Truro Parish.  Supervisor Williams plans to facilitate a community meeting on this project next week:

Community Meeting – Belmont Ridge Road Widening Project

Representatives from the Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure as well as the Virginia Department of Transportation will be on hand to answer questions associated with this project.   Additionally, a representative from Lennar, the contractor building the road, will be available to share details about the construction process.

If you have any questions about the meeting, please email shawn.williams@loudoun.gov or call his office at 703-771-5088.

Welcome to Our New Look!

Welcome to the “new and improved” Broadlands HOA website! It’s been quite a while in the making, and we continue to make improvements.

While the organization is slightly different from the “old” site, you’ll still find the popular stuff: design guidelines, pool information, newsletters – and an upgraded version of the discussion forums.

Best of all, you can now access all this information on your mobile device – even the forums. This new site is entirely mobile optimized!

PETiquette – Pick Up After Your Pet

Pet waste left on trails, sidewalks, streets, and grassy areas is carried by stormwater runoff into storm drains and into the watershed. Broadlands’ trails are dotted with Mutt Mitt stations with supplies to properly dispose of pet waste. The stations and disposal bags are provided by the HOA. Please remember to pick up after your pet. For more information about the impact of pet waste on the watershed, check out Loudoun County’s brochure, Scoop the Poop: Be the Solution to Stormwater Pollution.
