Economic Development Strategy Session 
National Sporting Library and Museum
102 The Plains Rd

Please join members of the Town Council and Town staff for an economic development strategy session on the evening of February 12, 2020 from 6-7:30 pm at the National Sporting Library and Museum. Conversations will focus on what the Town’s economy should look like in the future.

In many ways, the Town of Middleburg is an outlier in Loudoun County and the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). While Loudoun County is recognized as a young, technology driven economy that has experienced significant population growth in the last decade, Middleburg’s economy is driven by private educational institutions, tourism-related businesses and a steadily growing agricultural economy within close proximity. With a median age more than fifteen years older than that of Loudoun County, the stability of
Middleburg’s long-term economic prospects relies on the current generation successfully exiting or handing off existing businesses to a new generation and introduction of new products and services into the local economy.
 
The event is open to all members of the Middleburg community.
For Questions, please contact Jamie Gaucher at 540-687-5152
or email jgaucher@middleburgva.gov

2020 Census: 

Shaping Loudoun's Future


Why is the Census Important for Loudoun County?
An accurate count of Loudoun County residents is important to the community in many ways. The count affects the allocation of federal funding to the county and affects how legislative districts are drawn, which can impact the number of seats that the state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Your response ensures we have the resources to build stronger communities!

 Census information will be mailed in March 2020
