Virginians Advised to be Prepared for Storm Conditions

winter_drive

With Virginia’s impending snow storm, it’s best to plan ahead now. Virginia State Police is advising all motorists to delay travel plans for tonight and/or Tuesday morning, as roads will be treacherous. With the forecasted freezing temperatures, any snow and ice accumulations are expected to stick around for a few days. So it is important to prepare your home, family, and vehicle in advance.

If you do have to travel, then keep these tips in mind:

Make sure you and your car are properly equipped:

  • Make sure your vehicle has ample antifreeze, the windshield is clean and you have plenty of windshield washer fluid.
  • Check to make sure the headlights are clean and in working order. In Virginia, state law requires you to use your headlights when operating your windshield wipers.
  • Verify that the tires have tread and are properly inflated.
  • Have your battery tested, to avoid being stranded in the cold with a car that won’t start.
  • Equip your car with a flashlight and extra batteries, a first aid kit, warm clothes, bottled water, snacks, and a blanket.
  • Remember to have sunglasses in the car, as the glare of the sun off of snow and ice can be more intense in the winter than it is in the summer.

Suspect Found Deceased in Herndon After Apparent Suicide

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an attempted domestic-related murder where the suspect appears to have later taken his own life.

Around 3:15 a.m. on February 14, Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 23000 block of Champe Ford Road near Middleburg, for a report of a burglary. The victim’s estranged husband entered the home and brandished a firearm. After a brief struggle, the suspect discharged one round striking the victim. The victim was able to wrestle the gun away before she fired a round. The suspect then fled the scene.

Loudoun Deputies began searching for the suspect and contacted the Fairfax County Police Department as the suspect has a residence in the Herndon area.

The suspect was located deceased shortly after 10:00 a.m. by the Fairfax County Police Department in a parking lot in the 2600 block of Reston Parkway in Herndon. His injuries appear to be self-inflicted.

The victim was taken to an area hospital where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

town of purcellville sign

The Planning Commission at its January 8 regular meeting heard a presentation from Bowman Consulting regarding developer M/I Homes’ rezoning and development application for the 10-acre Ball property on 32nd Street (S 690). M/I Homes has applied to build 42 one and a half to two story duplex units on the property, but with a zoning request for mixed-use commercial, residential and other building options. The current development proposal is for residential units of 2,500 to 2,800 square feet. Bowman Consulting’s ensuing discussion with commissioners covered topics relating to the project’s density, age-restricted designation enforcement, traffic estimates and property access points. Bowman Consulting representatives compared the proposed development to a hypothetical community that could exist under the current zoning. The current zoning conforms with the property’s position in the town’s historic overlay district and the town’s comprehensive plan. Commission Chairman Gil Paist introduced the segment of the meeting with an explanation of the town’s development application process and also Planned Development Housing zoning. … Continue Reading

Town planning staff is working with the planning commission to review and approve changes to the Planned Development Housing (PDH) district, adding commercial and other uses. Three communities in town are currently zoned as PDH districts: the Courts at Saint Francis, Courtland Square and Village Case.
