As an economic and transportation gateway into Loudoun County, the Route 28 Corridor also lends itself to emerge as an international gateway for the Washington metropolitan region and a major employment destination for national and international businesses. The Route 28 Corridor Plan
amended the County’s comprehensive plan, known as the Revised General Plan
, and included policies intended to maximize the corridor’s commercial development potential. The Route 28 Corridor Zoning Ordinance Update is an important implementation component to the policies established in the County’s adopted Route 28 Corridor Plan.
The purpose of the Route 28 Zoning Ordinance Update project is to amend Loudoun County's Revised 1993 Zoning Ordinance to reflect the policies contained in the Route 28 Corridor Plan adopted by the County Board of Supervisors. Amendments to one of the County’s primary mechanisms for the implementation of comprehensive plan policies, the Revised 1993 Zoning Ordinance
, can establish regulations and standards that match the preferred development patterns established by the Route 28 Corridor Plan; apply incentive-based solutions to achieved desired outcomes; incorporate flexibility to give property owner’s the ability to respond to the corridor’s evolving market while adhering to plan objectives; and provide greater consistency and efficiency among legislative and administrative review processes.
