Loudoun County has launched a public health needs assessment to better identify those issues that are important to the community, how quality of life is perceived in the community, and what assets the county has that can be used to improve the community’s health. To that end, they have developed a brief, anonymous survey for county residents. Information can be found on their website at http://www.loudoun.gov/index.aspx?NID=2335. A direct link to the survey is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/loudounhealthcheck.

This summer, Broadlands is supporting a Halloween costume drive to benefit Let’s Help Kids. Nine-year-old Rachel Harris started Let’s Help Kids (LHK) in 2010 when she was 6 years old, with a mission to help elementary-school aged children whose families are experiencing financial hardship. LHK, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit, provides them with special items or experiences that they otherwise could not afford. Let’s Help Kids targets children in K-6 grade, from Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William Counties. While many organizations provide food, shelter and financial assistance to struggling families, LHK provides non-basic needs, such as birthday presents, Halloween costumes, bicycles, dance or sports lessons, books, or movie or amusement park tickets. LHK relies on monetary donations to purchase new items for children in need. Since its beginning, LHK has raised more than $60K and provided gifts to more than 500 children. Costumes collected will be resold this fall at a nominal price. The funds collected will enable LHK to help more kids. You can drop of your gently used, cleaned and bagged Halloween costume into the LHK collection box at Broadland’s Nature Center, located at 21907 Claiborne Parkway, now through August. More information about LHK and their events can be found at www.letshelpkids.org.
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
Hillside Elementary School (43000 Ellzey Drive, Broadlands)
July 23rd, 7:00pm
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 email@example.com or call his office at 703-771-5088.
