Welcome to Hirst Farm, located at the south end of the quiet town of Purcellville, Virginia. Just 50 miles from the Nation's Capital, in the foothills of the oldest mountain range on Earth, Purcellville is the economic hub of western Loudoun County. Our community is small enough to know your neighbors and receive numerous waves from neighborhood friends as you walk the trail system of Hirst Farm.

Hirst Farm Pond

 
In 2021, $46,100 is budgeted, and in 2022 (FY 2023), $450,000 is budgeted by the Town of Purcellville to complete our pond as a wet pond, though the Town's engineering staff believes the amount budgeted for FY 2023 could be reduced to $200,000 once the final construction estimates are in hand.

At the Town Council meeting held on Tuesday, September 13th, the Town's engineering director gave an update on the Hirst Farm Pond project.

The engineering director, Dale Lehnig said that the Hirst Farm Pond will be completed next year as a wet pond, not the dry pond from the original design for our community. Best practices have changed since Hirst Farm construction began and part of the grant funding for this project is predicated on a reduction in the amount of Phosphorous going into Goose Creek in a wet pond configuration.

A kickoff meeting for the Hirst Farm Pond project with Kimley Horn as the Town's Engineer was held on August 31.  The meeting included Kimley Horn, Town Staff and Loudoun County Staff.  Kimley Horn outlined their scope of work and a general schedule.  The first step in this phase of design will be to have a geotechnical engineer perform an investigation of the embankment.  Future phases will include a hydrologic analysis verification, pond model development, and final engineering plan preparation.  Kimley Horn will focus on addressing the remaining comments from Loudoun County; they will work closely with Loudoun County to ensure that the comments are addressed appropriately before a final submission to Loudoun County.

Hirst Farm HOA President Jon Standley confirmed with Town staff that control of the pond will pass to our HOA once construction is complete. This means that the HOA will become responsible for pond maintenance.

There is already about $600,000 allocated by the Town of Purcellville to complete this project with all of that sum coming to the Town in the form of grants. Dale Lehnig said she estimates an additional $93,000 is needed to finish the Hirst Farm project.  This amount will cover hardening of the spillway, engineering plan changes, and some of the cost of geotechnical investigations required by the County. The Town and County will find the funding needed, relieving Hirst Farm homeowners of the cost to complete this long-awaiting improvement to our community.

Town of Purcellville



New Cell Tower on Wastewater Treatment Plant Property


The Town Council voted on a finalized contract with Wireless Edge on September 7, 2021. Wireless Edge will need about eight months to obtain all necessary permits. Following that, construction of the new tower and leasing to carriers is expected to take 6-9 months. The new cell tower will provide some revenue to support the Town's water fund and provide much better cell service for the residents of Hirst Farm.

In April, 2022, the Town Manager reported that one of the four major national carriers is still moving forward; the Lease Agreement with Wireless Edge is in its 2nd round of comments and should be completed sometime in May. Wireless Edge requested and received a Letter of intent (LOI) from the carrier that they are diligently working to bring the site to fruition.
In August, 2022, Wireless Edge conducted a balloon test to demonstrate visibility of the new tower from surrounding areas.

In November, 2022, Wireless Edge delivered a timeline for completion of construction of the new cell tower. The expected date for completion of construction is March, 2023. After the tower is built it should take another two months or so to mount carrier equipment and go into service.
