In separate near unanimous-decision votes on Jan. 21, with Supervisor Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) absent for one of the votes, the Board of Supervisors approved a package of rezoning requests, which will likely mean a major face-lift of the current development.

Dulles Community Outreach – Your Opportunity to Impact the Future:
Loudoun County is seeking input from citizens regarding the future of the Dulles community. The information gathered during this outreach process will be used to shape the future County services offered to our community. The Brambleton Community Association encourages all residents to participate and share their ideas and suggestions with the County through resident and business surveys, social media, and in a unique online engagement forum called the Dulles Community Mind Mixer. Check out this video presented by Loudoun County. It’s important for residents to be involved with this project!
Volunteering in Brambleton, by Ram Venkat
As a Brambleton resident since 2008, I am more than thrilled about the developments and activities going on in Brambleton. When my wife Seetha & I looked at homes in Loudoun County, it didn’t take us very long to decide on a home in Brambleton. Tim with Miller & Smith helped us through our home buying decision as things happened pretty quickly.
From my experiences of having traveled this great nation – starting from a small town called Aberdeen, WA state (where Kurt Cobain of Nirvana is from) to Atlanta, GA to Boston, MA to the Bay Area, and having seen many neighborhoods & communities, my instincts told me that Brambleton had all of the right things for us.

Rock Ridge producing record-breaking season for first-year program
When a new high school opens, there are generally many obstacles to athletic teams being successful right away. The limited time available for the coaching staff and players to come together as a team can be a large issue, and with no senior class, a lack of experienced leadership can be a challenge. The boys basketball team at newly opened Rock Ridge High School is proving to be an exception to the rule. The Phoenix have produced a record-breaking inaugural campaign and are looking to accomplish even more.

Two Very Different Ashburn Parks Get Their Names: Brambleton Community and Broad Run Valley
Parks in Brambleton and Loudoun Valley Estates were named during the Loudoun Board of Supervisors Jan. 21 meeting, eliminating vague references such as the ball fields on Belmont Ridge Road. One is an active park with ball fields, while the other includes open space and trails.
Brambleton Community Park is familiar to drivers who pass through the North Star Boulevard/Belmont Ridge Road intersection just north of Briar Woods High School. It consists of four existing full-size and two smaller baseball diamonds west of Belmont Ridge, as well as two football fields and a soccer field east of Belmont Ridge.
Buffington Aims To Replace Incumbent Clarke
A challenge of representing the sprawling Blue Ridge District on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is trying to discern the needs of both rural and suburban residents. But Tony Buffington believes he can handle that job.
Buffington has lived in Brambleton since 2011, so he knows the suburbs. But he also grew up in Berryville, so the rural lifestyle, present in so much of western Loudoun, is familiar to him, as well. He talked about this matter and others Monday in an interview about his Blue Ridge District candidacy.
Farm-based breweries are on tap in Loudoun
Beer lovers can look forward to the arrival of farm-based breweries across Loudoun County this spring, after the Board of Supervisors’ recent passage of an ordinance that allows brewery businesses and tasting rooms on land where ingredients for beer are grown.
Last year, state lawmakers passed legislation that relaxed regulations for farm-based breweries across Virginia. The Board of Supervisors’ approval of the farm brewery ordinance at a Jan. 21 meeting made Loudoun the first county in Virginia to incorporate the new state law into local legislation.
Loudoun County’s population tops 350,000 mark
For the first time in history, Loudoun County’s population has topped 350,000, according to estimates released today by the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center.
The U-Va. analysis reports nearly 362,000 people were living in Loudoun as of July 2014. That figure is up nearly 50,000 from the 2010 Census, a more than 15 percent spike.
Only one other county in the commonwealth saw double-digit growth, percentage wise, in that time frame; that being Arlington, which jumped from 207,500 to 229,300 – a more than 10 percent hike.
Loudoun remains the third most-populated county in Virginia behind Fairfax (1.11 million) and Prince William (438,000). In terms of local jurisdictions, Loudoun is the fourth largest due to Virginia Beach’s more than 450,000 residents.
