Loudoun County was the 5th fastest growing county in the country over the last 15 years! The new Comprehensive Plan will help to ensure growth occurs at a pace and in a pattern that is fiscally sustainable for the county. It will set clear development expectations to maintain our county’s high quality of life and fiscal security.
Your input is a driving force of the New Comprehensive Plan. Your voice, values, experiences and perspective will help the team develop a plan you can confidently stand behind and champion through implementation.
Where are the results of the first and second rounds of public input?

What is a Foundations Report?
Our consultant team has written a Foundations Report, which summarizes the existing conditions and trends that are shaping Loudoun County.
