Loudoun County has adopted a new long-term vision for its land use and development that allows higher density mixed-use projects around transit hubs and commercial corridors.
Beyond the individual projects, Chess said he is happy to see the Comprehensive Plan adopted because it creates an overall sense of clarity about the county’s future development. He said he is glad to see a new plan in place that allows developers to move forward with projects, and he praised the county staff for the work of crafting it over the last three years.
“It’s great they finally have it done,” Chess said. “Instead of guessing and continually jockeying, we’re going to know what the ground rules are, and we’re going to adapt to those ground rules if they affect our properties. Just the establishment of ground rules will make it much easier to do business in Loudoun.”
