With the high level of community interest in the draft Loudoun 2040 Comprehensive Plan, Loudoun County is offering members of the public an option to provide comments via video during the Board of Supervisors’ upcoming Loudoun 2040 public hearings Wednesday, April 24, 2019, and Saturday, April 27, 2019.
The Board’s Loudoun 2040 public hearings are expected to attract a large number of speakers and for the convenience of the public, there will be an option for speakers to videotape their comments on a first-come, first-served basis at the locations of each public hearing. Members of the public who wish to provide comments to the Board of Supervisors may record their comments during one of the two public hearings; video recording will end when the public hearing adjourns. All video-recorded comments will be provided to the Board following the public hearings and be posted in the county’s online video archiving system at www.loudoun.gov/meetings.
The Board’s Loudoun 2040 public hearings are scheduled for:
- Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 6:00 p.m.
Loudoun County Government Center
1 Harrison Street, S.E., Leesburg
- Saturday, April 27, 2019, at 9:00 a.m.
