Loudoun County residents and businesses are invited to provide their perspective on local topics related to the environment and sustainability during a virtual town hall meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 17.
The meeting will be led by the county’s new environmental commission, which was formed by the oversight board in December and began meeting in July. The 17-member commission reviewed Loudoun’s existing environmental programs to determine the specific thematic areas on which the commission will focus.
Input from the public is being sought as the panel develops recommendations on topics for the county council to consider in early 2022. The commission focuses on five key areas: energy sustainability; improving natural resources such as trees, wildlife, watersheds and land conservation; environmental justice, which examines the impact of environmental problems on underserved populations; “Government by Example,” which includes programs to improve the sustainability of government operations in Loudoun County; and increase public engagement in environmental and sustainability initiatives.
