Metro’s Silver Line is among the items on the Loudoun Board of Supervisors’ Jan. 15 agenda, with funding, development and the surrounding transportation infrastructure all under consideration.

The board will also get updates bills before the General Assembly, consider land use changes at Goose Creek Village and pay respects to Gabriella Miller.

Loudoun must decide whether to find a way to pay for three Silver Line parking garages or revert them back into the full Metro project. The federal government is inquiring about that decision as it discusses a potential TIFIA loan to the county to fund the county’s portion of the nearly $6 billion Silver Line project.

Another Metro related item considers whether to revise the planned transportation improvements for access to the Route 772 station. The changes would alter the location of a Transit Connector Bridge over the Dulles Greenway and modify the internal street network of the Moorefield Station development south of the planned station.

The board has prepared a Resolution of Honor, Respect and Celebration of the Life of Gabriella Miller, 10, a Leesburg resident who succumbed to cancer in October.

The developers of Goose Creek Village will be back before supervisors to request revisions to that development. The application calls for rezoning 12.5 acres from office park uses to residential uses for the construction of 282 additional homes. Supervisors were critical of the application when first considered in December.

The board meeting begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15.
