Great News

Greenvest, the developer that proposed to build 15,000 houses in Dulles South, has withdrawn their rezoning proposals.  Your action over the past three years made this happen.

But we're not out of the woods yet.  The number of houses in current rezoning proposals is now down to about 12,000 -- but if approved, these proposals would pave the way for many more. The 12,000 new houses include:

1. Ridgewater Park, Transition Area near Ashburn
2. Braddock Village, Transition Area near Stone Ridge
Crosstrail, Leesburg
Kincora, Routes 7 and 28 intersection

1. Ridgewater Park: 1,841 new houses on land zoned for 63 houses

Action: The next critical vote is this Tuesday at the Board's business meeting.  The Board will vote yes or no to continue considering this proposal. We encourage anyone who is available to come speak against this development at 9:30 AM Tuesday at the County Government Center. County staff recommends denial of these new houses.

Proposal: Ridgewater Park Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPAM) and Rezoning Application
Community: Leesburg
New Houses: 1,841
Developer: Lansdowne Development/Hobie Mitchell

Ask the Board of Supervisors to:

  • Vote NO on the Ridgewater Park CPAM
  • Save taxpayers millions of dollars in capital and operating costs
  • Prevent 41,000 daily car trips on the Greenway, Route 7, and local roads in Leesburg and Ashburn
  • Protect Ashburn's drinking water
  • Avoid setting a precedent for tens of thousands of new houses in the Transition Area
  • When you decided to extend county water and sewer to the Transition Area, you promised that the decision was made for the health, safety, and welfare of Loudoun residents and not to increase residential density.  Now you need to keep your promise.
Email the Board of Supervisors

Email the Board of Supervisors and ask them to vote no on Ridgewater Park and Braddock Village in the Transition Area.

Be sure to include your name and address.

Be there for the vote on Ridgewater Park

2. Braddock Village: 860 new houses on land zoned for 66 houses

Action: Speak against this development at the Planning Commission Public Hearing, March 19 at 6:00 PM at the County Government Center.  Note that this item is last on the agenda, so it may come up late in the evening.

Tell the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors to reject this proposal. This development is in the same area as the Dulles South/Transition Area CPAM which Loudoun citizens defeated.  The proposal does not meet the Loudoun's comprehensive plan and should be denied. 

Proposal: Braddock Village Rezoning Application
Community: Dulles South, near South Riding and Stone Ridge
New Houses: 860

Developer: Nicholas/Farkas Joint Venture and John D.M. Crerar, Jr.

3. Crosstrail: 1,000 New Houses

Action: The Board of Supervisors is continuing to negotiate with the developer, and the major transportation issues have not been resolved. Email the Board of Supervisors and ask them to vote NO on this proposal.
Proposal: Crosstrail Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPAM) and Rezoning Application
Community: Leesburg
New Houses: 1,000
Developer: The Peterson Companies
Top Concerns:


Too close to the Leesburg Airport. Building houses on this land hurts the future economic vitality of the Airport.


Flips land zoned for commercial use to residential and retail use. The proposal would change this land from office space to 1,000 houses with regional retail, likely big box stores, and some office space.


Proposed traffic offsets are woefully inadequate and spell gridlock for the southeast quadrant of Leesburg with a negative impact on all traffic in the Leesburg area.

4. Kincora: 1,400 New Houses in Ashburn

Where is it? Intersection of Rt. 7 and Rt. 28 across from Dulles Town Center

What is it? Yet another town center proposal with 1,400 houses, 291,000 square feet of retail, and 4.2 million square feet of office space.  We are gathering the details on this proposal, but our initial reaction is -- how many town centers can eastern Loudoun handle next door to each other?  When is the county going to do a comprehensive community plan for our eastern communities, like they are supposed to do?

Action: No specific action needed yet, but we'll keep you posted.  Please let us know what you hear about this proposal. In the meantime, you can email the Board of Supervisors.
Proposal: Kincora Rezoning Application
Community: Ashburn
New Houses: 1,400, plus commercial, office, and retail space
Developer: Norton Scott/TRITEC Real Estate
