The public is invited to share input on the future development of the East Market Street area at a meeting 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 20.
Last year, the town began a visioning process for the area along Rt. 7 from River Creek Parkway to the Rt. 15 Bypass. The effort was initially dubbed “Envision East Market Street.” Based on the feedback received, staff members have rebranded the area as the Eastern Gateway District.
“Based on the results of an online community survey via the Leesburg Listens civic engagement platform, it was obvious that people see this area as the gateway to Leesburg from the east,” stated Rich Klusek, the senior planner heading up the project. “We are rebooting the project with this public input meeting on June 20th to better understand how the community wants to see this area develop in the future.”
At Tuesday’s meeting, staff members will provide an overview of project efforts to date, including the results of a design meeting with the Loudoun County Design Cabinet and the online survey. Staff members will also discuss current and proposed development projects and opportunities for new development.
Attendees will have the opportunity to provide interactive feedback with live polling using smart phones.
The meeting will be held in the Ida Lee Park Banquet Hall on the lower level of the recreation center at 60 Ida Lee Drive NW.
