Bumps Being Fixed This Week

Virginia Department of Transportation officials tell me that the final work is being done and all bumps are being repaired as part of the final work. Please be patient with the crews as they smooth out the bumps left from the installation of ten miles of new pavement on Sterling Boulevard.


BLIGHTED HOUSE ON N. BRANDON AVENUE TO BE REMOVED

I have asked the board and the general public be notified of the allocation of tax funds to finally remove the
blighted unsafe home on North Brandon in Sterling at the June 17 business meeting.

My draft public document states in part:

"The house at 1700 N Brandon Ave. in Sterling (Parcel ID: 014-45-6584-000) has been abandoned since the 1990's and has fallen into a state of extensive disrepair. The structure is a single-family brick house on a quarter-acre lot in Sterling Park.

On June 9, 2010, the property was cited for numerous violations of the Property Maintenance Code. Initially, the property owner cooperated with the County and paid the fines. However, the property owner failed to make the required improvements and eventually declined to respond to all requests for compliance as well as legal notices. During that time, the condition of the structure deteriorated beyond repair.

Given the unsafe state of the structure and the unresponsiveness of the property owner, the County decided to pursue demolition of the house through a Notice of Unsafe Structure/Demolition Order pursuant to Chapter 1410 of the Codified Ordinances of Loudoun County and Section 105 of the Virginia Maintenance Code. The County Attorney's office is in the final stages of fulfilling the statutory requirements for due process and proper notice to the property owner."

ONE DOLLAR MOVIES FOR CHILDREN

The Summer Movie Express is back at the Regal Countryside Stadium 20 in Sterling. This summer, Regal will sell $1 tickets for kid's movies showing on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10am.

STERLING BOULEVARD ROAD REPAIR ALMOST DONE


The Sterling Boulevard repaving is almost done. The historic repaving of Sterling Boulevard is part of the $4 million Virginia Department of Transportation project that included many of Sterling's older streets that are used by cut through traffic.

Most of the work on the entire length of Sterling Boulevard has been done at night over the past 30 days, and just the white stripes need to be installed along with the side street access points to be finished. Please be kind to the VDOT crews doing the final side street "bumps" being finished in the next few weeks.

Mark your calendars at the end of the summer for a Community Meeting on Tuesday, September 15th at 7:00 PM to discuss the moving of the Sterling Library. On the November 2014 ballot, Loudoun voters approved a bond to move the Sterling library in order to accommodate the renovation and expansion of the Sterling Community Center. Loudoun County is securing its first-ever 20 year lease on a nearby storefront for the new and expanded Sterling Library.

STERLING LIBRARY COMMUNITY MEETING

WHERE: Sterling Library, 120 Enterprise Street in Sterling

DATE: Tuesday, September 15, 2015

TIME: 7:00 PM

HOW TO FILE REPORTS ON OVERCROWDING
CARS ON LAWNS, TALL GRASS AND MORE

Summer also brings its own seasonal problems to Sterling, like tall grass and cars parked on lawns. Loudoun County has launched a new online system to handle concerns like these called Loudoun Express Request, or LEx. You can find LEx at www.loudoun.gov/LEx or the County's brand new app for Android and iPhone.

PROPOSAL FOR FIXING TRAFFIC ISSUE
AT STERLING BLVD. AND WOD TRAIL

Summer also brings more bicycles onto the road, especially at the dangerous crossing of the W&OD Trail and Sterling Blvd. I surveyed the Sterling District in my newsletter, and 77% of Sterling residents said that this crossing is a serious problem that needs to be fixed. I am working with the County, the Northern Virginia Regional Parks Authority, and VDOT to make this crossing safer for both cars and bicyclists. Remember that cars have the right-of-way, and cars should not stop in the middle of the road unless a bicyclist or pedestrian is already in the street.

Board of supervisor members will be asked to consider recommendations made in a Study to make improvements at this "intersection" through the public process including the use of the VDOT study and public input to the board.
