There has been a report of several larcenies from unlocked vehicles this week on Ivandale Road. Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind residents to lock their vehicles and secure all valuables in a safe location or out of plain view from potential thieves. In the majority of these cases, the vehicles were entered without any signs of force or physical damage and were believed to be left unlocked. Securing your property, to include closing garage doors to a residence, prevent the majority of these criminal incidents. “Locking your vehicle and removing expensive items from plain view will reduce your chances of becoming the victim of this crime opportunity,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.
Tonight’s Christmas Tree Lighting at Hamilton Community Park has been canceled due to the inclement weather.

The Town Council and Planning Commission for the Town of Hamilton have been working for the past 18 months on updating the town’s zoning ordinance to help promote economic development and reduce the amount of restrictions that homeowners face in using and improving their property. On September 9, 2013, the Hamilton Town Council voted to send the draft zoning ordinance to the Planning Commission to begin to get citizen input on their work. On October 15, 2013, the Hamilton Planning Commission will hold a public input session and a question and answer session for residents and business owners from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. at the Hamilton Town Office, located at 53 East Colonial Highway.
The draft ordinance is located here. Changes to the existing ordinance come in two forms, with language proposed to be eliminated from the existing ordinance shown in strikethrough text and proposed new text shown in bold face type.
If you have any questions regarding the proposed draft zoning ordinance prior to the meeting, or wish to submit written comments in lieu of attending the meeting, please feel free to contact David M. Beniamino, Zoning Administrator at 540-878-3570 or via e-mail at email@example.com. We hope to see you all on October 15, 2013″
