Why Loudoun's Rural Economy Matters
- The farms and open space of Western Loudoun generate
net revenue to the county, while residential development
costs the county more money in services than it makes from taxes.
By maintaining rural and agricultural lands, the county and its taxpayers save
- Many of Loudoun's rural businesses would not survive
if surrounded by dense, suburban developments.
We supported the original 2003
zoning ordinance that was in place when this Board took office
because it gave protection to both businesses and residents in
Loudoun's rural areas.
