One of our neighbors received the following reply from our County Supervisor:
Thanks for your email and the attached letter.
As the Sterling District representative, the safety and wellbeing of Sterling residents is a top priority for my office. We certainly heard the community’s feedback and concerns loud and clear when we met a few months back. Based on the feedback that has been received, the removal of the traffic signal and implementation of a right in-right out access point has been removed from the proposal.
County staff and engineers for the Route 7 project are currently working to reevaluate the intersection and develop new proposals to present to the Cardinal Glen community. As I have expressed to other Cardinal Glen residents who have reached out on this issue, once staff has developed new options to consider, we will indeed follow up with the community. However, please understand that this will take time as this project is a Countywide undertaking that will not happen overnight, and we are only in the beginning stages. Rest assured that when the time comes to present alternatives, we will be in contact with the community.
Thank you again for your email and for expressing your concerns.

We have just learned that the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is expected to adopt the FY 2023 budget at its business meeting April 5, 2022, so we must move quickly to express our concerns.
Please sign our online Change.Org petition and share with as many people as you can via both email and social media.
With this project moving quickly, your action is needed so that our neighborhood can give a full representation of our opposition to the Board of Supervisor’s proposal.
This week there are 3 opportunities to speak to the BoS. PLEASE consider signing up to speak (either in person or virtually) at one of these meetings:
Sign up in advance (by noon on day of) by calling 703-777-0204.
Stay informed by joining our Facebook Group (search Cardinal Glen of Sterling HOA and request to join), sign up for our Route 7 mailing list, and check back here frequently.
Good neighbor Mike White reports that Loudoun County is proposing to limit our intersection to right turns only. We would only be able to enter the neighborhood from westbound 7 (right in), and could only leave the neighborhood going west on 7 (right out). Entering the neighborhood from eastbound 7 would require a u-turn at another intersection…read the details here in the 2040 Route 7 Corridor Study.
We strongly encourage everyone to contact the county board of supervisors to make your opinion heard. This will be a major topic of discussion at our next board meeting! All homeowners are encouraged to attend virtually.

After 3 years of working with Loudoun County on a resolution to control storm water runoff from Barnswallow Ct through Parcel F, reconstruction of the existing dirt channel is finally set to begin August 9th, 2021. This reconstruction will remediate, at no expense to Cardinal Glen homeowners, a longstanding problem our neighborhood has had with flooding and erosion in Parcel F. In addition, Loudoun County will assume responsibility for channel maintenance from the culvert behind 13 Barnswallow Ct to the culvert between 18 Coloma Ct and 200 Cardinal Glen Cir. (i.e. the entire length of the channel).
