Supervisors Notebook

The Board of Supervisors held what was a brief meeting Sept. 21. Items were approved by consent, thereby granting approval to all the agenda items without discussion. The actions include:

* The Herndon Day Labor site was briefly brought up by Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) during board comment. In a statement, he announced that he will be asking the Land Use and Transportation Committee to review the plans.

* Supervisor Stephen Snow (R-Dulles) reminded the public that an emergency preparedness exercise will be conducted Oct. 22, at the Potomac Falls High School in Sterling. The exercise will be conducted by the Health Department and will simulate the method of dispensing emergency medicine and vaccination in the case of a disaster. Snow called for up to 1,000 volunteers to support this drill. An online sign-up form is available at

* Approved the renaming of Belmont Greene Subdivision Park. The name has been changed to Beth Miller Park, after the former owner and publisher of the Loudoun Easterner. Miller died last November.

* Approved a review of Middle Goose Creek. Planning five-six miles of continuous horse trails, the board will look into the environmental effects the trail network might have on the Beaver Damn Reservoir.

* Approved the increase in the construction costs of the Claude Moore Recreation Center. The contract was increased $1,060,000 making the new total $18,959,000. The increase is due to the cost of the 50-meter pool revisions.

* Approved a five-year lease for 6,432 square feet of office space on Sycolin Road, Leesburg, for the Fire and Rescue Administration Offices. The estimated cost for the lease is $804,091 which is based on an annual increase adjustment of 3 percent.

* Approved the renaming of portions of Ryan Road, West Church Road, Cedar Green Road and all of Tippett Hill Way. This approval will essentially rename pieces of roads that became detached during various construction efforts.

The next Board of Supervisors meeting is scheduled for Oct. 4.
