The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is committed to creating a business-friendly environment that encourages commercial growth. An important component of business growth is encouraging and assisting commercial development opportunities that enhance the tax base.
The Fast-Track Commercial Incentive Program is designed to streamline the development process, provide process certainty, reduce approval times and provide a central point of contact.
