Quality of Life

What makes a city a great place to work? The same things that make communities great places to live — well-maintained neighborhoods, good schools, safe streets, lakes, parks, golf courses, shopping, arts, plenty of things to do and affordable housing options. Leesburg has a varied and vibrant business community, stable economy, and a plethora of companies dedicated to growth and investing in their employees. That’s why thousands choose to work where they live.

Stability

Leesburg’s unemployment rate is consistently below the national average, while recent job growth and future job growth projections are usually well above the national average.
