Town of Leesburg, VA issues Request for Information

Submission Deadline: May 29, 2019, 5:00 pm (local time)

The Town of Leesburg is issuing this Request for Information to gather information and industry feedback from potential, qualified vendors of professional consultant services in regards to a re-write of the Town’s Crescent Design District zoning provisions.

The Town of Leesburg is located in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is 12.5 square miles with a population of 54,215. The Crescent Design District (CDD) is a zoning district that is approximately 423 acres. It is located adjacent to the historic core of the town on the east, southeast and south sides of the downtown and broadly extends from south King Street to just north of East Market Street inside of the Route 15 Bypass. The Crescent District Master Plan (CDMP) was approved in 2006 and was developed as a recommendation of the 2003 Business Development strategy to expand the business footprint of the downtown to achieve:
  • Economic development opportunities
  • A mixed land use, live-work-play environment
  • Construction of more and different types of housing options at varying costs
  • Extension of the traditional urban street and block development patterns from the downtown and transition to the more suburban development patterns further from the downtown.
  • Achieve ‘placemaking’ through development of a variety of public spaces and openspaces that will enhance livability and the work environment
  • Architectural design that compliments Leesburg’s architectural history.
Submissions are due by 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 29. Please visit the Town’s Bid Board to receive updates regarding this solicitation by clicking HERE. The full RFI can be found HERE.
