Second Silver Line Scenario Planning Workshop Scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 26

Loudoun County has scheduled a second public workshop for the Silver Line Scenario Planning Study. The workshop will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 26, at Moorefield Station Elementary School, 22325 Mooreview Parkway in Ashburn.
The workshop will be used to discuss three potential land use and growth scenarios and to solicit feedback to develop a fourth scenario. The land use scenarios will be discussed using interactive technology platforms to give instant feedback about the trade-offs associated with different land use assumptions. Participants will also have the opportunity to make changes to the scenarios and see how those changes affect measures like school impacts, transportation and tax revenues. 
Links to images depicting the scenarios will be posted at on or about Aug. 24. Members of the public will be able view the scenarios prior to the Aug. 26 workshop and interactively provide comments about the scenarios and assumptions. The website also includes information and summaries from the previous workshop and new website polling questions. The project website will be updated continuously over the next few weeks as new information is developed.
RSVPs are not needed but anyone who plans to attend the workshop is encouraged to contact the Loudoun County Department of Planning and Zoning at 703-777-0246 or to help the project team prepare for the right number of people and to have the right technology in place. Anyone who requires any type of reasonable accommodation as a result of a physical, sensory, or mental disability to participate in the workshop may also contact the department.
This workshop is part of a larger study initiated by the Board of Supervisors in 2013 to evaluate the development potential of the Dulles Metrorail Service Districts which were created in 2012. The purpose of the study is to evaluate planned land uses between the future Metrorail stations.
