Special Tax District to Fund Bridge Repair in Greenlea

The Loudoun Times-Mirror reports that Loudoun County's supervisors voted unanimously on June 16 to "approve a special tax district on the 19 homes in the Greenlea neighborhood – a small development south of Leesburg – to pay for a new bridge."

According to the article, "Crooked Bridge, the only entrance into Greenlea, was damaged during a May 2008 storm that sent debris down Goose Creek. The debris congested under the bridge and damaged its supports. Since then, Greenlea residents have crossed the bridge at their own risk.

"The cost of the new bridge, over 15 years, will amount to about $665,000 divided among the homes. The tax district will be applied only to the homes in that neighborhood."
