    A Message from Broadland Run District Supervisor Sylvia Glass:

    The Tillett’s View residential rezoning application (LEGI-2023-0031: ZMAP-2022-0003) is scheduled to come for a final vote of approval or denial by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors at their meeting on Tuesday, July 2nd. The application has seen a further reduction in units and now stands at 300 total units, consisting of 101 single-family detached homes and 199 townhomes. The east side of the property would be entirely single-family detached houses and the west of the property would be entirely townhouses. The newest supporting documentation for the application is available via this link with an upload date of 06/11/2024 or later>>

    Public comment on the application can be made to the Board at their meeting on Tuesday, July 2nd, or at their meeting on Tuesday, June 18th. To sign up to speak for Public Comment, either register with the clerk in the Board Room during the meeting or sign up in advance via the information on Loudoun.gov/SignUpToSpeak. The agenda for the July 2nd meeting and the Tillett’s View application analysis packet will be available on the evening of Thursday, June 27th at Loudoun.gov/Meetings, along with a live stream of the meeting on July 2nd. Questions and comments can also be emailed to the full Board at BOS@Loudoun.gov or sent directly to Supervisor Glass via the contact information at Loudoun.gov/BroadRun.

    I've heard several things happening with this location and the situation surrounding the new elementary school nearby --- several neighbors of late have given me this information which surprised me and worries me a bit....Don't know ALL the facts but this is what I've heard so far.....

    1) Heard that Waxpool road isn't going to be widened at all and that the traffic on this road is going to be a huge mess in the AM and PM with the elementary school in session...
    2) Heard that the developer allegedly refuses to pay for a stoplight at the Belmont Ridge and Waxpool intersection instead demanding that the taxpayers pay for it...
    3) Heard that county (?) State(?) are going to put in sidewalks for the kids that will be walking all the way from their homes to the school on that one small street (safety??)
    4) Eagle Ridge MS is currently overcrowded and no new high schools being developed or planned....Briar Woods over capacity and kids being bussed to Independent HS along with Middle School kids being moved to trailers to alleviate the overcrowding...
    5) There are concerns that there will be safety issues with students walking to Eagle Ridge MS and Belmont Elementary Schools on a very narrow road. To add to the mix: Drivers heading to Briar Woods HS will potentially have accidents on the road since the road is still under construction and there is no traffic light installed at the moment.
    6) Im hearing that none of the members of the board of supervisors nor the builders are interested in meeting with the residents in the immediate area surrounding both the elementary and middle schools and they feel that their kids' safety isn't important to the builder or Loudoun board of supervisors--

    Some parents are stressed out over this and feeling that their concerns aren't being heard at all..and that its a foregone decision that will have a negative impact on the kids attending the LCP schools.

    I wonder what the impact will be on the neighborhood as a whole when all these houses are going to be built in this area....That is a significant number of families/cars heading into that immediate area....will there be speed bumps to slow down the traffic in that area? Will there be enough guards to ensure the safety of the kids walking along this road? Or is it of the builder and BoS's attitude "Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead"??? Have they really looked into it with the safety in mind of all the kids or is the profit / tax revenues overriding the safety concerns?

    Food for thought and I thought I'd share my thoughts here.....

    Are the people within the impacted communities voicing their concerns at the meetings?
