What is a comprehensive plan?
A comprehensive plan is Washington County’s blueprint for the future. Once adopted, it may be used as a guide for elected and public officials and provide the framework for evaluating future land use and public investment proposals. Although it is required by the Code of Virginia, the comprehensive plan can be so much more to the county! Preparation of the Plan gives the public the chance to work with county leaders and staff to create a vision for development.
The comprehensive plan may address some of the following issues: land use, transportation, parks and recreation, natural and cultural resources, infrastructure (water and sewer), housing and economic development.
Who is involved?
It takes all of us to create a meaningful plan; you, your neighbors, members of the business community, and elected officials. Community input is vital to the creation of the plan. Your thoughts, ideas and suggestions are critical!
How can I get involved?
Make plans to attend a community meeting, take an online survey or host a Meeting-in-a-Box.
