Supervisors approve funding for CIP, Broad Run

Budget discussions are in full swing for the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors as they held their first budget work session March 6.

During the session, the board reviewed the proposed department operational budgets and the Capital Improvement Program.

After discussion, the board voted to endorse the CIP, subsequently approving the $26.5 million Broad Run High School renovation and expansion project.

Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run) explained where the funding for the more than $26 million project would be spent.

“We voted to fund this project in FY 2015 using a combination of cash and bond financing,” Williams said. “I want to thank my colleagues on the Board for recognizing the urgent need for upgrades and supporting this project.”

The project provides funding to design and construct a 10 classroom addition to Broad Run, as well as expand the cafeteria, two resource spaces and a health room, as well as other improvements.

Athletic improvements are also included.

The renovation and expansion will increase capacity from 1,468 to 1,600 student, eliminating the need for trailers.


With all the money that goes to the schools for their budget and capital improvements getting rid of all the trailers should be a priority.  That along with pay.

It’s funny how Broad Run’s capacity is listed as 1,468 but the school has been running with 1,800+ students for the last 10+ years. That, along with its age, has a lot to do with why it needs a major renovation. Thanks to the School Board and Board of Supervisors for recognizing that we need to take care of our older schools as well as building the new ones.
