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 in January 2012 and are serving through January 19, 2016, are:
From Loudoun County
Ted Lewis, President, GeoConcepts Engineering
Mary Beth Avedesian, Vice President, B. F. Saul Company
Matt Pierce, President, Buchanan Properties, LLC
From Fairfax County
Bari Nichols, Senior Vice President, Lincoln Property
Arthur Woods III, Executive Vice President, Burgess & Niple, Inc.
Greg White, Regional Director, COPT Property Management
The Route 28 Tax District Advisory Board meets annually in March of each year at the call of the chairman. If other meetings are necessary, the chairman sends out a notice calling for a meeting.
