Blasting Begins in Section 23

Van Metre has begun blasting Section 23 (Truro Parish near Belmont Ridge Road.) Right now the blasting is anticipated to take about 30 days.  Typically the blasts take place every few days.  This is dependent on how much rock we run into, the weather, etc.   The blaster tries to schedule the blasts in the afternoon between 2 and 3 o’clock.  If there is weather moving in the area, they try to move the blast time up in the day.  

Due to the formation of the rock ridges – some homes that are located along the same ridge do feel the blasts more intensely than others.  

Questions? .Please contact Van Metre at 703-348-5824.

Loudoun Linear Parks and Trails HOA Survey

Loudoun County seeks to develop an interconnected, countywide linear parks and trails system. The comprehensive system will provide a variety of functions and benefits, including recreation, alternative transportation, wildlife habitat, water quality protection, flood hazard reduction, aquifer recharge, erosion prevention, property value enhancement, economic development and scenic beauty.
The LPAT plan addresses passive recreation trails, not sidewalks or paved multi-use paths. Paved, multiuse paths and sidewalks are under the direction of the Loudoun County Transportation Plan through the Planning and Zoning Department.
We are reaching out to various stakeholder groups to get feedback on the draft LPAT plan and will be incorporating public feedback into the next draft plan for the county’s review. As such, one of our stakeholder groups are the county’s HOAs and neighborhood groups.  
HOA residents, please review and complete the survey below by June 15th. This survey seeks to gauge community interest and/or concerns with new public trails in or near your neighborhood:
