County names new director of building and development
Loudoun County has selected Mike Seigfried as the new director of the Loudoun County Department of Building & Development, County Administrator Tim Hemstreet announced today.
Seigfried has been serving as interim director of the department since Jan. 1 after retirement of former director Terry Wharton.
“We conducted a nationwide search for this position and had a very strong and competitive applicant pool. Mike stood out as an exceptional leader and manager,” said Hemstreet in a prepared statement. “I am confident that under his leadership, the Department of Building & Development will continue to provide for the public’s safety and welfare as it oversees all phases of construction within Loudoun County.”
Seigfried began his service in Loudoun County in 1987 as a planner. Over the past 27 years, he has moved up through the department with progressively responsible positions, becoming assistant director in charge of land subdivision in 2005.
As director of the Department of Building & Development, Seigfried will be responsible for overseeing all phases of new land development throughout the county, including approval of subdivision plans, construction plans, site plans, and building plans; all construction-related inspections; final occupancy inspections, and the issuance of county building, zoning, and grading permits. The department is also responsible for managing construction sites through the Erosion and Sediment Control Enforcement Program, managing public improvements through the bonding program, managing proffers and managing water resources.
“Having worked in Loudoun for many years, I am proud of the great team of professionals we have developed in the department. I plan to continue to draw on their expertise and build on their successes,” Seigfried said in a prepared statement.
Seigfried has a bachelor's degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and completed coursework toward a master’s degree in urban and regional planning at the University of Pittsburgh.
