Community Information Meeting for Proposed Park & Ride Lot at Franklin Park

The Loudoun County Office of Transportation Services is hosting a community information session to discuss the proposed park and ride lot to be built at Franklin Park at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 8, at the Franklin Park Arts Center, 36441 Blueridge View Lane in Franklin Park.

The information session will give residents an opportunity to become familiar with the project as well as offer a forum for public comments, suggestions and feedback.

The proposed project calls for a 200-space park and ride facility to be built on the southeast corner of Franklin Park fronting Route 7 and the park entrance road. A portion of the park and ride lot will be dedicated for use by equestrian organizations and will include an open parking area to accommodate horse trailers. In addition, the commuter parking will be a shared-use lot and available for park or equestrian events that occur on weeknights, weekends or holidays.

Some features of the proposed lot include enhanced landscape planting along the northern project line, LED lighting in the parking area, preservation of existing mature healthy trees, and a proposed internal equestrian trail which would connect to the existing perimeter equestrian trail.

Representatives from Loudoun County and the design consulting team will be at the meeting and will welcome questions, suggestions and feedback. A brochure that summarizes the proposed park and ride lot project and illustrates a draft design concept can be viewed on the Loudoun County website at
