Tot Lot Upgrades – Resident Feedback Accepted through July 31st

Broadlands owns 17 playgrounds throughout the community, offering a wide variety of play structures for residents ages two to twelve years old.  These structures are replaced on a rotating basis based on age, wear and tear, hazards, and reserve fund availability.  Many factors are taken into consideration when proposing upgrades, including the size and layout of the space and all accessibility requirements that must be followed, funds allocated for the upgrade, and a desire to provide diverse equipment within the community.  We plan to upgrade three tot lots in 2022.  The design plans are included below for resident review and input.  Please provide any questions or feedback by July 31, 2022 via phone at 703-520-9905 or email Sarah@broadlandshoa.com.

VDOT Traffic Calming Task Force Virtual Meeting

Join the Meeting Jun 28, 2022 06:00 PM

TOPIC: Proposed Traffic Calming Committee Seeking Volunteers: The Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure (DTCI) performed engineering studies on Chickacoan Trail Drive, Demott Drive, Glebe View Drive, Ridgeway Drive, and Village Drive.  Traffic and speed data on all but Village Drive met the qualifications to develop conceptual plans for traffic calming measures.  We are looking for residents in the affected areas interested promoting traffic calming to review the information and help distribute information to all affected owners in preparation for the survey that VDOT will put out later this year.  There are a total of 1,239 residents broken out into smaller sections that are affected by these areas.  In each section, more than 50% support will be required to implement the recommended traffic calming measures.

Please review the following information and see if you are on the affected property list and join the June 28th VDOT Traffic Calming Task Force Virtual Meeting using the Zoom links below:
