Leesburg Town Council seeking public input on courts expansion
The Leesburg Town Council is asking for public input on the expansion of the Loudoun County Courts System in downtown Leesburg at its regularly scheduled meeting Dec. 11.
Loudoun County’s Government Services and Finance Committee has been weighing the option of whether to build a planned expansion of the Loudoun County Courts in downtown Leesburg, or move the entire complex to County-owned property outside of the Town on Sycolin Road.
Loudoun County currently has approval for an approximately 60,000 square foot expansion at its location on Church Street.
County officials have recently stated that they wish to increase the expansion to approximately 120,000 square feet of new construction over two phases.
The committee was supposed to make their decision for recommendation to the Board of Supervisors at their Nov. 20 meeting, but instead they approved Board Chairman Scott York’s (R-At Large) motion for delay to its meeting Jan.7.
Town Council will be providing its input to the Committee after the Dec. 11 council meeting for consideration.
Previously, the Town Council sent the committee a letter stating the the wanted the county courts system to stay downtown.
