Public Hearing Tonight on FY11-FY16 Secondary Road Six-Year Plan and FY11 Priority List

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors public hearing tonight,
Monday, May 10, has an earlier start time than usual. The public
hearing will begin at 5 p.m. in the Board Room of the Loudoun County
Government Center, 1 Harrison Street, S.E. in Leesburg.

Among the items on the agenda is the FY11-FY16 Secondary Road Six-Year
Plan and FY11 Priority List. It is also the first item on the agenda.

Each year the Board of Supervisors holds a joint public hearing with
the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) on a proposed
Secondary Road Six-Year Plan (the ?Plan?) which is developed through
the joint efforts of County and VDOT staffs.

The purpose of the public hearing is to allow Loudoun County residents
an opportunity to review the proposed plan and offer comments on
additions, deletions or changes in priority before sending it to the
Board of Supervisors business meeting on June 1, 2010. Funding for the
Plan is derived from state and federal fuel taxes, vehicle title fees,
vehicle sales taxes and one-half cent of the State?s general sales tax.

The funds are then allocated to be used in localities per a formula
proscribed in State law. The Plan is updated and adopted each year.
Funding estimates are prepared by VDOT and funding is usually
allocated to several categories ? paved road improvements, unpaved
road improvements and bridges. However, due to the significant decline
in fuel consumption, vehicle sales and registrations and in the State
sales tax collections, revenues projected over the next six years are
negligible at $1,024.
