Downtown Merchants Object To Visitors' Center Move -- Leesburg2Day-- The Journal of Loudoun County

Linda Callagy, LCVA board chairman and part owner of the Potomac Gallery, said the move will be great for downtown.

"Most of the visitors center traffic is driving," she said, noting parking was sometimes limited in Market Station, and because the Jewell Building is an office building, there will be no other weekend traffic.In addition, the visitors center staff "knows what's down here and will continue to promote the historic district," Callagy said.
The Market Station lease expired, and the LCVA board "looked at every possible place for over a year," Callagy said.The tourism agency still has partners around the county and "hooking the visitors center with businesses is our mission," she added.
Acknowledging the new location "may not have been perfect" for everybody, Callagy said the LCVA is working on several activities, and she hopes businesses will come to the new center.Most of the customers are county residents, she said, and the decision to move came after a long, hard look into all the factors involved.
"Change is difficult.You have to make the best of it," Callagy said.
The new visitors center is scheduled to be complete in early September, when a grand reopening will be held.The LCVA has taken information cards about the move to businesses in Market Station and the historic district directing people to the visitors center.The center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the LCVA business office is open the same hours Monday through Friday.
