On January 17, 2019, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors directed the Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Board to develop a detailed implementation plan for an interconnected, countywide linear parks and trails system. The system will provide a variety of functions and benefits, including recreation, alternative transportation, wildlife habitat, water quality protection, flood hazard reduction, aquifer recharge, erosion prevention, property value enhancement, economic development and scenic beauty.
Public input and engagement is a vital part of the planning initiative. Virtual workshops were held in February 2021, and the second survey is now available. Residents are encouraged to participate in the survey, submit comments and find more information about the Linear Parks and Trails system project at loudoun.gov/linearparksandtrails. The deadline to complete the survey is May 20, 2021. Inquiries and comments can also be sent by email to [email protected].
