Loudoun County, Va. (February 17, 2015) – The Loudoun County Design Cabinet invites the public to submit nominations for an award program that recognizes Loudoun County’s distinctive architecture and iconic designs.

Entries must be received by March 11; details and an entry form are available online at biz.loudoun.gov/designawards.
“Loudoun is proud of the environment we’ve created to live, work and play,” says Loudoun County Economic Development Director Buddy Rizer. “I’m always impressed with how Signatures of Loudoun recognizes those who make the extra effort to create a great work setting. From data centers and Dulles Airport to wineries and retailers, these are structures that house the businesses driving Loudoun’s economy.”
