Responsible development represents opportunity to strengthen our local infrastructure, financially add to public services, and diversify the local economy. The benefits listed below especially shine as businesses are planned in DESIGNATED growth areas and their impacts are mitigated.
Revenue for Essential Services
Revenue from commercial or industrial sources supports essential services and vital community programs, without having to expand the capacity of many of those services - allowing us to keep taxes lower for our residents.
Good Jobs Close to Home
Over half of Louisa residents currently work outside the County and have an average commute over 30 minutes. By bringing the right businesses to Louisa, our residents will have more options closer to home.
Bringing in Desired Businesses
With an approach to responsible growth, we may also attract businesses that fill critical needs in the County.
