Leesburg is a progressive community in northwest Central Florida with a population of 20,000 residents, growing commercial and industrial development, an international airport, two local colleges and one of the country's top hospitals.
This area has been an important hub of commerce for more than a century, attracting 50,000 people to work each weekday because of our central location, proximity to major transportation corridors and a full complement of municipal utilities including electric, natural gas, water, sewer, solid waste and high-speed fiber-optic communications.
Leesburg also is an ideal residential destination, consisting of 37 square miles nestled among the Harris Chain of Lakes and offering scenic, historic neighborhoods, a quaint downtown business district, a wide variety of local schools and this area's best parks and recreational programs. The city is just 40 miles from Orlando, 80 miles from Tampa and midway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
We welcome you explore Leesburg and consider us for a new home or business. The Community Development Department is here to provide professional, proactive zoning, planning, building, and mapping services to citizens, developers, and government officials which enhances the quality of life for the people of Leesburg.
