Bond Release / Street Acceptance

  • Loudoun County requires a Performance Agreement and Surety (Bond) for any public infrastructure built by a developer. 
  • The Bond guarantees the County can build or complete the required public infrastructure if there is default by the developer.
  • Once the developer determines the public infrastructure is complete and up to standard, the developer will submit a bond release request and fee to the county for official release. 
  • This process is known as the "Bond Release Process." 
  • The Bond will be released back to the developer once the public infrastructure is inspected by the Infrastructure Compliance Team, deemed up to standard, and is ready to be accepted for maintenance by the appropriate entity.

Public Street Acceptance

  • Once the developer determines the public infrastructure is complete and up to standard for a "public" street, the developer will submit a bond release request and fee to the County for official release. 
  • The Infrastructure Compliance Team will inspect the public improvements and facilitate a final inspection by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). 
  • The Bond will be released back to the developer once the public infrastructure is officially accepted into the State Secondary System for maintenance by the Commonwealth Transportation Board.
