Wexton in Waterford

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors last week appropriated $55,000 for an updated study seeking to address traffic calming, potable water improvements and sustainability in the Village of Waterford, according to county documents.

The funds will be moved from the County’s Capital Project Management Account into the Village of Waterford’s Capital Projects Fund, according to the documents.

Members of the Waterford Foundation and the Waterford Citizens Association have been working together over several months to determine the best course of action for how to address infrastructure issues in the village, according to community member Cate Magennis Wyatt. She said receiving the financial support from the board is an important first step.

The funds approved by the board will be used to update a plan titled “Bury the Wires and Tame the Traffic” which was prepared by Kimley-Horn and Associates and was approved — but never implemented — in 2003 by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. The revised plan should take four months to complete, Wyatt said.

This time around, community members are hoping to complete the project within a three- to five-year timeline, according to Wyatt.

“This is the first time we have received full support from the board and the funding to move forward with this study. We are very grateful,” Wyatt said.

If Vdot thinks traffic calming is warranted, they pay for it what makes Waterford special enough that taxpayers have to pay for them.
