SWVA Today , Saturday, May 28, 2016
(RECAP: When a community is in economic crisis, with shuttered storefronts and dwindling downtown foot traffic, Virginia Community Capital may be able to offer incentive for revival. For the past decade, VCC, a nonprofit community development financial institution and B Corp bank, has been doing just that in communities across the commonwealth. The impact, said Jane Henderson, president and CEO of VCC at an anniversary celebration on Wednesday, is more than money. The program is encouraging jobs and business, healthcare and fresh food, affordable housing and community revitalization.)

(RECAP: Leesburg Town Council's May 24 meeting was taken over by discussion of the current rezoning application for Crescent Parke, a proposed mixed-use development along the edge of the Leesburg Bypass. Senior town planner Michael Watkins gave a detailed outline of each concern planning commission members had with the current blueprint. Mayor David Butler requested the council not yet vote on the matter. Crescent Parke is a mixed-use development that will feature retail/office space, office/hotel space, retail with 96 multifamily units located above it and a 2,000-square-foot community room, 196 townhomes and 88 "two over twos," or two-unit townhomes. The development currently has mixed reviews among residents. Council will continue discussion of the plans at its next work session.)
