St. Louis Village Plan

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has approved a work plan initiating the St. Louis Village Plan, designed to help St. Louis maintain its unique character, support the community’s goals and address a range of issues related to land use, development and quality of life.

The project involves the St. Louis Village Plan Task Force, comprising a mix of residents, property owners, and representatives of Mt. Zion Baptist Church of St. Louis, Banneker Elementary School, the Black History Committee (Friends of Thomas Balch Library), and the Loudoun Historic Village Alliance. The task force is working with county staff to craft the plan. The task force has three subcommittees focusing on water issues, history and heritage and land use and infrastructure.

Task Force Meetings

The task force is conducting regular community meetings to involve village residents and keep you informed of their work, which is expected to extend throughout 2023 and be completed in early 2024. The most recent community meeting was June 26, 2023.
