Resources for Citizens
Here are links to some Coalition and outside resources.
Loudoun Express Request. Loudoun Express Request (LEx) is a citizen request system for members of the public to submit requests for service and report concerns to the county government via the internet and a mobile application. Using LEX, you can, for example, report a zoning violation, obtain answers about rural land uses, ask about building and zoning permits, find out the property line setback for building new structures on your land, find out about new road projects, or report potholes or other road repair needs.
New Comprehensive Plan. A committee of the Loudoun County Preservation and Conservation Coalition has worked since 2016 to provide expertise, advice, and guidance to the public, staff, and Board of Supervisors, which voted to approve the new plan in 2019. Now the Coalition’s work will continue with work on the rewrite of the Zoning Ordinance and other documents to align them with the new Comp Plan language, to ensure that they reflect the strong priorities set forth by citizens, with the metrics to ensure that those goals are met.
Summary of Envision Loudoun citizen comments. Members of the Loudoun County Preservation and Conservation Coalition have read and carefully categorized all of the public comments from the first series of Envision Loudoun public input sessions. Please continue to push your supervisors to support the vision that CITIZENS have articulated. County planners (who are writing the plan) continue to state that thousands of new homes are “needed” in the Transition Area; citizens instead support housing growth along the Silver Line metro stations. Please review and continue to email ALL of the supervisors your vision for the next 25 years of Loudoun. Public comment can be submitted online through July 12.
Loudoun Environmental Preservation Awards. Loudoun County’s Department of Building and Development has an awards program to identify and recognize development projects in Loudoun County each year that have achieved the highest standards of performance for the preservation of the county’s natural resources through erosion and sediment control. Award recipients can be seen here.
Loudoun County GIS. This mapping tool can be used to locate floodplains, steep slopes, zoning information and many other attributes of areas and individual properties in the county.
Loudoun Online Land Applications Map. This page maps pending land applications, where development is sought or underway.
Virginia Conservation Network. VCN is a coalition of 120 environmental organizations working to create a diverse and coordinated conservation movement in Virginia.
Virginia League of Conservation Voters. VLC serves as the political voice of the state’s conservation community, working to ensure that Virginia’s elected officials recognize that our natural heritage is an environmental and economic treasure for all.
Virginia Department of Historic Resources. VDHR is the state historic preservation office. Its mission is to foster, encourage, and support the stewardship of Virginia’s significant historic architectural, archaeological, and cultural resources.
