Coalition publishes report on building a sustainable rural community
An ad hoc committee of the Loudoun County Preservation and Conservation Coalition has published “Suggestions and Recommendations for Building a Sustainable Rural Community.” The report examines the serious threats to Loudoun’s scenic rural areas and sets forth an action plan for preserving this unique and economically, environmentally and regionally valued portion of the county, and its recommendations focus on improving the rural economy in a way that maintains the quality of life for current residents.
The committee, organized in November 2016 by Alfred Van Huyck and Malcolm Baldwin, was made up of members from the Loudoun County Preservation and Conservation Coalition (LCPCC), the Rural Economic Development Council (REDC), and rural business leaders. It organized in November 2016 following the Board of Supervisors strategic retreat and as the process to update the county’s Comprehensive Plan began. You can read the 23-page report HERE.
