The Loudoun Board of Supervisors held its first work session on the Dulles Corridor Metro Rail Project since receiving the final cost estimate earlier this week.
Board members now have 90 days in which to decide whether to participate in the project. After hearing a presentation by the county staff, supervisors agreed to schedule a public hearing or input session as well as staff outreach sessions.
Supervisor Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge) made a motion at the end of the meeting to request a 30-day extension from the project partners, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and Fairfax County.
The board voted 4-3-2 to send the letter. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) and Supervisors Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) and Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run) voted against the motion. Supervisors Geary Higgins (R-Catoctin) and Suzanne Volpe (R-Algonkian) were not present for the vote.
[More to come tomorrow about the work session.]
