A key principle of ReThink9 is assurance of the highest quality and durability of the finished product, reducing long-term maintenance costs and maintaining the historical integrity of the 270-year-old Town of Hillsboro.

As 21st-century infrastructure is built, context-sensitive design, materials and craftsmanship are conserving the18th- and 19th-century character of one of Virginia’s best preserved authentic rural villages.

Meticulous care in stone wall construction, granite curb installation, with exposed aggregate storm drain gutters and aprons and slate-finished sidewalk pavers, complement the Town’s historic architecture.

Dark-sky enabled pedestrian lighting and a streetscape with some 200 native-species trees planted to recreate a lush tree canopy—along with the elimination of intrusive overhead utilities—will restore to Hillsboro its unique sense of place.
