For more than 250 years, Leesburg residents and elected officials have overseen the development of their community. From a rural hamlet to the seat of one of the fastest growing counties in the country, Leesburg has seen many changes. Through these many years of growth and prosperity, Leesburg has managed to provide a strong quality of life and maintain its identity as a historic Town poised for the future.
A fundamental tool used to guide the Town's development is the Town Plan. Mandated by the Commonwealth of Virginia, this comprehensive document provides the Town's vision for physical development within the Town limits and in adjacent areas governed by Loudoun County known as the Urban Growth Area/Joint Land Management Area. The current Town Plan was formally adopted by the Leesburg Town Council in 2012.
In 2019, the Town launched a new project, Legacy Leesburg. A comprehensive review of the Town Plan that has continued into 2020. For more information regarding Legacy Leesburg, and how you can be involved, please visit legacy.leesburgva.gov.
