[ARCHIVED] News Release - Clarification on Letter to the Board of Supervisors. . .

PURCELLVILLE, Va., February 23, 2022 A proposed trail by the County to connect Franklin Park to Purcellville, which will allow the connection to the W&OD Trail, is scheduled to be presented this evening, February 23, 2022 at 6:00 PM in a virtual special public information meeting. The intent of the meeting is to allow citizens to provide comments on the project. 


To facilitate expedited funding by the County, the CAO’s of the Town of Round Hill and the Town of Purcellville drafted a joint letter (attached) for the Franklin Park to Purcellville Trail. This letter does not represent the Town of Purcellville’s endorsement of the proposed path, but represents the support for funding a trail between Franklin Park and Purcellville, pending community input and guidance.  Such a trail supports our Comprehensive Plan, and we look forward to community engagement and input to determine the preferred and optimal location for such a path.


As stated in our Comprehensive Plan as adopted by the Town Council on June 30, 2020, this project will align with the goals to consider an off-road bike/pedestrian trail instead of sidewalks to connect the W&OD Trail to Franklin Park to the West, and coordinate with Loudoun County on the connection of bike and pedestrian trails west towards Franklin Park to complete links in the county-wide trail network. A trail will provide a new and safe pedestrian friendly connection from the W&OD Trail in Purcellville to the Town of Round Hill.


For meeting participation information, please visit Loudoun County's website for documents and the Webex link.
