The Loudoun County Preservation and Conservation Coalition (LCPCC), founded in December 2007, is an informal group of 55 nonprofit, nonpartisan organizations dedicated to the preservation and protection of the historic and environmental resources of Loudoun County.
The Coalition participating organizations meet regularly on the last Tuesday of the month. The agenda for the meeting consists of current issues of concern and is sent to organizations in advance.
All organizations are invited to bring issues to the Coalition. When a significant number of participating organizations are concerned with an issue a lead organization may form a Work Group. The Work Group will create a plan of action, encourage participation by other organizations and prepare deliverables such as a written report, letter, or testimony for the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, Loudoun state legislators, or other group depending on the issue. Organizations do not have to support an issue for which they have no interest.
The Coalition has set up project groups of members when an issue is likely to extend over a long period of time and involve significant follow up action. Presently the Coalition has the following project groups: Conservation Easements, Budget and Finance, Heritage Preservation, Historic Cemeteries, Resource Protection & Green Infrastructure, Rural Arterials Network, Rural Roads & Bridges, and Zoning. These groups work independently of the Coalition but report monthly on their activities.
