In its 2016 winter newsletter, the Town of Leesburg’s Planning and Zoning Department reported it had initiated “Envision East Market” in a move to establish a clear vision for the future of the critical eastern gateway to the Town.

“Envision East Market”—the name given to the East Market Street Small Area Plan—was established on February 1 and stems from a Loudoun County Design Cabinet charrette held in 2014. The plan ultimately will provide detailed land-use planning, transportation network planning, and design guidance for the critical eastern gateway to the Town.

Students from the University of Virginia’s Graduate Planning Program will assist staff on this project. Currently, the Town is seeking input from affected property owners, community members, and any other stakeholders. Contact Andrew Painter or any of the land use planners in the Loudoun office if you would like to obtain more information or provide input. The Loudoun office has handled many properties in the small planning area and is well suited to assist interested parties during this year-long planning process.
