Updates on the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite

Project Update: May 25, 2022

To help you identify possible changes to zoning districts for a specific property, a new interactive zoning district map is now available to supplement the draft zoning districts text in Chapter 2 of the draft Zoning Ordinance,  

This map shows the existing and draft new zoning districts at the parcel level. In the upper left corner of this map, you may enter your address or parcel identification number (PIN) to see the draft new zoning district for a specific property.   

Keep in mind that zoning for incorporated towns is not included on this Loudoun County zoning map, as incorporated towns maintain their own separate zoning districts.   

Public Comment and Review Period for Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Open Until July 18

Loudoun County residents, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders now have the opportunity to review and comment on the first draft of the new county Zoning Ordinance during a 90-day public engagement period that began April 18, 2022 and ends July 18, 2022.

A new online interactive platform enables individuals to read through the draft Zoning Ordinance and provide comments. 

The county’s Zoning Ordinance Committee has served as a sounding board for potential ordinance changes throughout the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite process. The committee has heard discussions about new and revised land uses, definitions and performance standards; improvements to parking regulations; renaming of zoning districts; changes to process; and changes that will implement the Loudoun County 2019 Comprehensive Plan.

Two rounds of preliminary public engagement have already been completed, which included 56 in-person and remote public input sessions with community groups and advisory bodies. In addition, the county conducted "open house" meetings for the public to learn more about the process.

In addition to the 90-day public engagement period, the public will also have an opportunity to provide comment at a Planning Commission public hearing anticipated to take place in fall 2022 and a Board of Supervisors public hearing, which is slated to take place in late 2022.
