Economic Development Panel Seeks Public Input

Each Wednesday night through the summer, the town’s Economic Development Steering Committee has been gathering input from panels of business owners and industry experts in hopes of refining Leesburg’s plans for economic growth. On Thursday, the panel wants to hear your ideas.

The committee will hold a general public input session at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at the Mason Enterprise Center. Any residents or business representatives with suggestions that could be incorporated into the town’s growth strategy are encouraged to attend.

So far in its work the panel has heard about concerns and opportunities involving zoning issues, the Crescent Design District, parking, workforce housing, marketing, among other topics. The committee, which was created by the Town Council earlier this year, is slated to report its recommendations next month.
