Loudoun Supervisors Plan Energy Strategies Workshop - Loudoun Now

The Board of Supervisors will be conducting a sustainable energy workshop tomorrow, viewable by the public, to begin the process of updating the County Energy Strategy. Written in 2009, this award-winning strategy is now badly outdated and in need of a complete rewrite.

Fiscal Impact Committee | Loudoun County, VA - Official Website

For those of you interested in some of the granular details of county planning, here's some insight into how we determine what county facilities are needed to support our growth. I'm the Supervisor Ex-Officio Chair of the Fiscal Impact Committee (FIC), a citizen stakeholder committee that reviews the formulas the county staff uses to plan for growth over the next 20 years. This process has several steps and is updated every two years. First, we review and approve the Facility Standards (e.g. we need one fire station for every 100K people, etc.). Next, using the Facilities Standards, we develop the Capital Intensity Factor (CIF: the formula used to assess the amount needed per house built to help pay for county infrastructure to support those houses) and the Capital Needs Assessment (CNA: total facilities needed for the next 20 years). We then use the CIF to calculate the total voluntary contribution (proffer) we need from each developer by type of house and the CNA to actually load projected capital projects into the six-year Capital Improvement Plan. If this sounds complex it is. If it sounds boring, believe me, it's not. This group of very dedicated developers and community advocacy groups spend a lot of time working to ensure we can accommodate growth in a controlled and planned way to preserve the uniqueness of Loudoun County. Most land in Loudoun County is privately owned, so simply stopping growth is not an option. That would also make most houses completely unaffordable. The Board of Supervisors, County Staff and advisory committees like FIC work together to control and shape growth into something that will preserve our quality of life. Man I love this job!

Happy Labor Day!

It is as important today as it has ever been to be thankful and show special appreciation to everyone who works hard to serve our community. Showing gratitude is important for more than just one day out of every year, but its meaning is especially impactful now while our community and our nation works to rebuild from the pandemic economy. Always remember to say, “thank you” and to tip extra when you can.

I am happy to share the good news about LCSO implementing a pilot program to help empower members of the community who are affected by mental health illness and drug addiction called "Community Assistance Response and Empowerment (C.A.R.E.)"

LCSO Announces Pilot Program to Empower People in Crisis

Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman announced today the implementation of a pilot program to help empower members of the community who are affected by mental health illness and drug addiction.

This summer, the newly formed Loudoun Sheriff’s Office Community Assistance Response and Empowerment (C.A.R.E.) Team will assign one full-time deputy per shift to exclusively respond to and follow-up on mental health, su***de, overdose, and other calls for service involving critical issues. “As part of the C.A.R.E. Team, our deputies will conduct follow-ups to ensure families have adequate resources, services, and support,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.

The deputies assigned to the team are all current School Resource Officers and are certified in both basic and advanced Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training, as well as Fair and Impartial Policing and Insight Policing. “By drawing upon each deputy’s crisis intervention training skills and combining the expertise of our mental health professionals in Loudoun County, the team can link a person experiencing a behavioral crisis to the appropriate services and provide other effective responses to our community members and their families,” added Sheriff Chapman.

The goal of the C.A.R.E. Team is to increase the safety at the scene for everyone - the person in crisis, the deputies, and our community members.

The LCSO will continue to partner with Loudoun County Mental Health, Substance Abuse, and Developmental Services and other community partners to support and serve community members who are affected by mental illness and drug addiction.

The LCSO continues to be a leader in crisis intervention training in the region and has provided a valuable skill set that has assisted our staff in many instances to peacefully resolve potentially violent situations. The agency recently held its 50th session of CIT training in April reaching another milestone in the regionally and nationally recognized program. The LCSO has trained over 700 personnel from the local, state, and federal levels, as well as private organizations.

In 2012, Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman set a goal of training 25% of sworn personnel in CIT after assessing the number of incidents involving mental illness in the county. In 2017, the LCSO exceeded that goal by having 100% of all uniformed patrol and corrections deputies with two or more years trained in CIT. In addition, 100 percent of all dispatchers and call takers in the Emergency Communications Center are also trained in CIT.

The CIT program is designed to promote positive interactions between law enforcement and persons in crisis and reduce injuries to deputies and persons in crisis.

This week, I was honored to visit many members of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LCCFRS) team and learn firsthand about the jobs they do and the challenges they face. My sincere thanks to Systemwide Chief Keith Johnson, Deputy Chief and “A” Shift Commander Mike Nally, and the extraordinary men and women I met during my visit.

On Monday, I met with Chief Nally and spent the day visiting seven fire and rescue stations throughout the county. At about 3:00 PM, while in Purcellville, Chief Nally was notified of a structure fire in Sterling at the opposite end of the county. After a 23-mile drive with sirens and lights (delayed repeatedly by more drivers unaware of Virginia's Move Over Laws than I thought possible), we arrived at the scene of a fully involved, 2-alarm townhouse fire with flames visible on all floors. Outside temperature was about 95 degrees with a strong wind. I spent about an hour at the scene and got to witness incredible work and get a sense of the extraordinary physical challenges our first responders face.

Then on Wednesday, I visited our state-of-the art firefighter Wellness Center for a tour by Captain Scott Lantz and Center Manager, Taylor Goodman. I had asked Chief Johnson if I could take the Candidate Physical Ability Test, the test all new recruits must take to join the LCCFRS. The test consists of eight activities that measure a recruit’s ability to perform the routine physical tasks required by the job. You must wear a 50-lb vest throughout the test simulating the bunker gear firefighters wear during a fire, and each activity is separated by a 75’ walk. For the first test, an additional 25 lbs. was added to my shoulders to simulate a hose, then I was required to climb the equivalent of ten flights of stairs on the stair master within three minutes. That was followed by a 100’ hose drag, two ladder raises, a simulated forced door entry with a 10-lb sledgehammer, a 50’ crawl through a totally blacked out tunnel containing a series of over/under/around obstacles, a 100’ double fire extinguisher carry, and finally, two overhead roof venting exercises with a long-handle hook. Recruits are required to complete the entire test within 12 minutes, and I’m proud to say I recorded a very respectable time.

These two days were simply extraordinary, and my experiences talking with these remarkable men and women will inform my decision-making throughout my career as a Loudoun County Supervisor and beyond. Here’s an excerpt from my letter of appreciation to Chief Johnson:

“…Then there are the dozens of incredibly dedicated firefighters I met and came to know, not only during my ride-along but also who I observed during the Sterling fire. Please extend to all of them my thanks for their kindness and courtesy. My sense of déjà vu taking me back to my air rescue helicopter days was palpable for me during the entire day, but especially as I watched the men and women of the LCCFRS do their job at its most dangerous. There is a bond among first responders forged by a common commitment to the very highest standards of public service and sacrifice. It cuts across all superficial differences in our backgrounds, our lived experiences and our learning. It is an unspoken devotion to professionalism, to excellence and to an abiding concern for the welfare of others. Those qualities were abundantly evident in every member of your team I met and observed. They collectively and individually represent the very finest members of our community. Please pass along my very sincere thanks to them for their hospitality and service.”

What is the history behind Flag Day?
"When the American Revolution broke out in 1775, the colonists weren’t fighting united under a single flag. Instead, most regiments participating in the war for independence against the British fought under their own flags. In June of 1775, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to create the Continental Army—a unified colonial fighting force—with the hopes of more organized battle against its colonial oppressors. This led to the creation of what was, essentially, the first “American” flag, the Continental Colors.
For some, this flag, which was comprised of 13 red and white alternating stripes and a Union Jack in the corner, was too similar to that of the British. George Washington soon realized that flying a flag that was even remotely close to the British flag was not a great confidence-builder for the revolutionary effort, so he turned his efforts towards creating a new symbol of freedom for the soon-to-be fledgling nation.
On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress took a break from writing the Articles of Confederation and passed a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white,” and that “the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”
Over 100 years later, in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson marked the anniversary of that decree by officially establishing June 14 as Flag Day."*

Debate on issues of equity in LCPS is misplaced

This is a very balanced, fair and rational assessment of the importance of understanding and addressing equity issues in the Loudoun County Public School system. Our local debate is merely a snapshot of the vitally important discussion now taking place nationwide. It’s a breath of truly fresh air and I commend the Loudoun Times Mirror for injecting adult commentary and rational thinking into the discourse. https://www.loudountimes.com/opinion/debate-on-issues-of-equity-in-lcps-is-misplaced/article_4fbce832-c9f9-11eb-b239-1f7060d0a6a7.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share
