Ashburn, Va. (March 12, 2015) – The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has directed the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services to initiate the public participation process for naming two new county park sites and the county’s adult day center in western Loudoun.
The C.D. Smith park site, a developer proffer in the Dulles district, is located in the community of Stone Ridge, VA, off of Northstar Boulevard, adjacent to John Champe High School. The original public solicitation to name this site was issued in October 2014, but naming was deferred by the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Board at its December 6, 2014, meeting. The 14.5-acre property will feature a permeable trail, meadow, playground, pavilion, pond and parking.
The Kirkpatrick West site, also a developer proffer in the Blue Ridge district, consists of 15.29-acres, of which approximately 7.5 acres are designated for recreational use. The proposed park will be located adjacent to Kirkpatrick Farms, at the intersection of future Gardena Drive and Northstar Boulevard. The property will feature a pond, one (unlighted) rectangle field, landscaping and parking.
The western Loudoun adult day center in Purcellville, VA opened in July 2007, in a separate wing of the Carver Center. The adult day facility provides a supportive social setting and therapeutic activities for participants with memory loss and/or physical limitations. The center has been known as the Carver Adult Day Center. Loudoun residents requested that the County consider an independent name for the facility.
Anyone interested in proposing a name for the new parks and/or Carver Adult Day Center can submit the recommendation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Steve Torpy, Director, Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services, 20145 Ashbrook Place, Ste. 170, Ashburn, VA 20147.
Include your full name, email/mailing address and phone number.
The deadline for submissions is 5:00 p.m. on March 17, 2015. For more information, please call 703-777-0343.
