County Provides Update on Special Exception Process for Mickie Gordon Memorial Park

Newsflash sizing - Mickie Gordon (1)

Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services has withdrawn a request for a Special Exception to the county’s zoning ordinance for Mickie Gordon Memorial Park. 

The Special Exception request was filed through the county’s legislative land use process for the purpose of bringing Mickie Gordon Memorial Park into conformance with the current zoning as an active park, as well as requesting to add certain amenities such as lighting and additional cricket pitches.  

The Special Exception request was withdrawn following feedback from residents at three community meetings, including two public workshops that sought input for future improvements and recreational elements at the park. 

A new plan for future improvements to the park will be developed based upon information received from the community and various user groups during the community input process. Prior to any formal submission of a revised Special Exception request, the conceptual plan will be presented at a future Board of Supervisors’ Finance/ Government Operations & Economic Development Committee meeting.
