TOL PR 2016-06-21 Interactive Zoning Map Town of Leesburg News Release For Immediate Release Media Contact: Betsy Arnett, Public Information Officer barnett@leesburgva.gov  703-771-2734 Leesburg Launches Interactive Zoning Map New online land development tool allows users to look up current zoning and permitted uses by clicking on a parcel or searching for an address. Leesburg, VA (June 21, 2016) – After recognizing that many people who call or visit the Planning and Zoning Department at the Town of Leesburg simply want information about the existing zoning and permitted uses for specific properties in the Town, staff created an interactive zoning map on the Town website. The Town launched the new map which is located at www.leesburgva.gov/zoningmap earlier this month. Following the familiar format of the printed Official Zoning Map, the Leesburg Interactive Zoning Map provides access to detailed zoning information for properties within the Town limits. Users can search by address or zoom in on the map to click on a particular location. Links from the map lead to applicable sections of the Zoning Ordinance, detailing permitted uses, standards and definitions. Additional features of the map include the ability to change the base map to an aerial photograph and the ability to focus in on a particular part of the map to print, email, or share through various social media channels. “This new online tool compliments our Leesburg Interactive Applications Map (LIAM) and other online tools that allow our residents and businesses access to information on their time, not just during Town Hall business hours,” said Director of Planning and Zoning Susan Berry Hill. The new Interactive Zoning Map was created by Town staff, using an online template provided through the Town’s existing GIS enterprise licensing agreement with ESRI. There was no additional cost to the Town. # # #
