Route 28 Tax District Advisory Board
In 1987, the Route 28 Highway Transportation Improvement District was formed in Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. Oversight of the Route 28 Tax District is provided by the Route 28 District Commission composed of nine members – four each from the Loudoun and Fairfax County Boards of Supervisors and the Virginia Secretary of Transportation. The Virginia State Code provision that forms the Route 28 Tax District also establishes an advisory board to be comprised of 12 landowners or their representatives. The role of the advisory board is to make an annual report to the District Commission on the needs of the district and the activities of the advisory board.
The advisory board is composed of six members each from Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. Of the six from each county, three are selected by the corresponding Boards and three are elected by the landowners in each county to serve four-year terms. Members appointed or elected to the Route 28 Tax District Advisory Board must own or represent a landowner of commercial or industrial property within the boundaries of the Route 28 Highway Transportation Improvement District. The most recently elected members who began their terms January 20, 2016, and will serve through January 19, 2020, are:
