Here are the "big ideas" that came from all of the public input (so far!):

  • It's All About Character. Character comes first and land use follows. How do we create memorable places?

  • Change the Trajectory. How do we guide the transition of Leesburg from a bedroom community to a vibrant, urban place to live and work, without losing what makes the town special?

  • Diversified Development Strategy. One size does not fit all.

  • Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. What will happen on the last remaining piece of vacant land? In redevelopment areas? How do we make Leesburg a place to live and work . . . and retain our existing businesses?

  • Increase the Home Choice Portfolio. How do we meet the housing needs of all citizens?

  • Comprehensive, Consistent and Connected Open Space. Focus on natural connections as well as design elements to create a coherent system of green spaces.

  • Emphasis on the Public Realm. The Town itself can take the lead on maintaining and enhancing character.

  • More Emphasis on Moving People. Focus on moving people, not just cars.

  • Broad Commitment to the Town Plan. If done well, the plan will reflect the desires of the people of Leesburg and will have their support.
