Update on Fredericksburg’s Comprehensive Plan

Below is an update from the city of Fredericksburg on the Planning Commission’s work to update its Comprehensive Plan.

The Planning Commission continued work on the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan at its meeting on March 26. They reviewed revised goals, objectives, and initiatives in key geographic areas, which include the Downtown community, the Rappahannock River and other natural open space, Commercial Road Corridors, Neighborhoods, and Suburban Business Districts. The Planning Commission made clear that the draft Comprehensive Plan will remain a working document through October 2014. At that point, it will be ready for the Commission to review in its final form and forward to City Council. The newly revised section of the Comp Plan - Key Areas is available for public comment and a public hearing for this portion of the revised Plan will be held on April 9, 2014.

Work continues on the next section of the Plan – Key Issues, which is a detailed look at such things as transportation, public facilities, environmental protection, historic preservation, housing, institutional partnerships, and more. When this draft section is completed, around early May, it too will be posted for public review and comment.

Ongoing public involvement is encouraged.

Email the Planning Director, Chuck Johnston, or Senior Planner, Erik Nelson.
