The Loudoun County Business Assistance Team has launched a pilot program in partnership with the town of Leesburg to focus on the issues of permitting, zoning, code enforcement and fire prevention as they relate to businesses within the town.

Subject matter experts with Loudoun County and Leesburg are available to meet with and guide commercial property owners and prospective tenants through the building and zoning permitting process for the use or reuse of commercial buildings within the town of Leesburg. This is often referred to as "adaptive reuse," or the process of reusing an old site or building for a modern use,

Loudoun County and the town of Leesburg are committed to providing commercial property owners and tenants with upfront zoning, permitting and code-related information that will allow for informed business decisions.
