>>>2nd Public Meeting on Sheriff's Substation at Rolling Ridge Elementary School
>>>MONDAY, JAN. 29, 6:30 P.M.

As I requested another public meeting on the proposed construction of a Loudoun County Sheriff's Office substation next to Rolling Ridge Elementary School will be held Monday, January 29, 2007, at 6:30 p.m., at the school, which is located at 500 East Frederick Drive in Sterling.

The planned substation is expected to provide substantial public safety services to the community reduce travel time to the Sheriff's Office Headquarters in Leesburg and expand the Sheriff's Community Policing Program. Incorporating a community meeting room would also provide a venue for community meetings easily accessible from Sterling Boulevard.

>>>> STERLING TRANSPORTATION COMMUNITY MEETING
>>>> Feb. 8, 7:30 p.m. Senior Center

The date and location are now announced for the 2nd meeting to access plans for improvements on Route 7. Six months ago a well attended meeting resulted in plans being developed further with public input.

Together with Sup. Mick Staton, I will ask staff to present "30 per cent" design plans to you. To review the plans please join me on Thursday, February 8th at 7:30 P.M. at the Senior Center in Cascades which is next to the regional library.

>>> 78% TOLL INCREASE PUBLIC HEARING
>>>TUESDAY, JAN. 30 3:30 P.M. AND 6:30 P.M.

Sterling citizens who rely upon the Dulles Greenway as a route around Loudoun will have a chance to speak against
a proposal to increase tolls on the roadway by a walloping 78 percent. Please pass this notice on to friends who do not know about two public hearings on the proposal next week in Leesburg, Virginia.

On Tuesday, January 30th the State Corporation Commission will be in Leesburg at the Government Center to hear public comment on the request by Toll Road Investors Partnership II, LP (TRIP II) for an increase in the maximum authorized level of tolls. The Board of Supervisors is on the record opposing the increase. Citizens should tell the SCC their opinion.

If the proposal is approved by the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC), the agency charged with oversight of toll roads in Virginia, tolls on each driver would eventually escalate from $2.70 to $4.80 each way on the Dulles Greenway.

The first hearing is at 2 P.M. in the Board Room and there will be an additional hearing at 6:30 P.M. also in the Board Room.
