On Nov. 16, 2018, more than 300 rural business owners, stakeholders, experts and elected officials descended on Salamander Resort & Spa to discuss strategies for the future of Western Loudoun.

“There are some challenges and some opportunities that are in the rural west that may not be realized in the rest of the county,” Chair Phyllis J. Randall said. “As its been said, the goal of this summit is to describe the opportunities and challenges facing rural Loudoun County and identify actionable solutions to preserve and maintain the area.”

The first panel featured national and state business resource partners, as well as our own Executive Director Buddy Rizer.

“We have to be open to the ideas that might be coming down the road. He didn’t know that we would be DC’s Wine Country or the growth of our breweries," he said. "We have to do what we need to do to keep our farmland farmland. We have to be creative and bold.”
