Posted to Animal Services Facility by Heidi Kellum

Construction for the new animal services facility in Leesburg is nearing completion. At this time, all structural and exterior finish work for the facility is complete. Over the next few weeks, the contractor will finish the remaining site work, the parking lot, duct installation and electrical work. 

Work to install architectural finishes has begun and will be ongoing until the end of the project, currently estimated for completion in late summer 2020.

This project constructs a new, 21,450-square-foot animal services facility in Leesburg to serve as the primary location for Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS), replacing the existing 15,000-square-foot facility in Waterford. 

The new facility will provide many of the same services as the current animal shelter, including pet adoptions; animal welfare law enforcement; housing of stray, abandoned, or relinquished companion animals; dog license sales; volunteer opportunities; dispatch services; low-cost rabies vaccines, educational programs; and pet retention counseling.

Posted to Ashburn Recreation and Community Center by Tony Jones

A public information meeting was held on September 26, 2019 to discuss the features of the proposed Ashburn Recreation and Community Center. The meeting was held in the Loudoun County Public Schools board room. The center, a 115,000 square foot building, is currently in design and will be constructed near the public schools' administration building off Broadlands Blvd. 

Consultants from MJMA/Page outlined what residents can expect to see in the new center. Some of the features include a 50 meter competition swimming pool, full size gym, fitness areas, indoor running track and a walking path around the exterior of the property. Staff from the Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure and the Loudoun County Department of Recreation, Parks and Community Services were also on hand to answer questions. 

Groundbreaking for the center is anticipated to take place in Spring or Summer 2020 with construction taking between 24 and 30 months to complete.
