On December 8, 2022, Loudoun County hosted a public information meeting regarding the new Philomont Fire and Rescue Station. This project will construct a new 18,500-square-foot, fire-and-rescue facility on a seven-acre site at 37180 Snickersville Turnpike in Philomont.
At the meeting, the project team presented a site plan and preliminary building elevations with various options for participants to review and identify their preferences. The presentation and recording are available for review on the project page at loudoun.gov/philomontstation. The design team is reviewing the comments and suggestions and will incorporate those into the design of the new station. In addition to these efforts, the design team has initiated a feasibility study of Mr. Bill Ridge’s proposed concept plans (titled Scheme 4 and 4A) at the existing fire station site. The study will be released upon final completion in the coming months.
In addition to sending comments to the Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure (DTCI) at [email protected], members of the public can provide input at these upcoming meetings:
- Planning Commission Public Hearing for review of the Special Exception (SPEX) and Commission Permit (CMPT).
- Board of Supervisors Public Hearing and Business Meeting for review of the Special Exception (SPEX) and Commission Permit (CMPT).
These meetings are tentatively scheduled for winter (Jan/Feb/Mar) 2024.
