County seeks input for Comprehensive Plan update

Published

on

Warren County is requesting your input for planning for the future of Warren County. The time has come for the County to review and  update its Comprehensive Plan, which will guide growth and development in the County for the next 15-20 years.

The Plan was last adopted by the Board of Supervisors on July 16, 2013. We are asking that you take the time to complete our survey to give us your opinion on County issues such as housing, land use, services, parks and recreation, roads, etc. The survey can be found at website address: www.warrencountyfuture.com. It can also be found on the County’s website. If you would like a hard copy to fill out, please stop by the Planning office (Suite 400) in the Warren County Government Center to pick up a survey. You can also call (540) 636-3354 to request a survey be mailed to you.

The Comprehensive Plan is the County’s official policy guide for future development related decisions. It is long range in nature and provides a picture of how the community wishes to develop over the next 15-20 years. This survey will kick-off the Comprehensive Plan update. The Board of Supervisors will also use the survey results to craft a strategic vision as to how the County should thrive and grow in the future. The vision will be included as part of the Comprehensive Plan.

When asked about the Comprehensive Plan update, Doug Stanley, County Administrator, stated, “Warren County has made significant strides over the past fifteen years in attracting new commercial and industrial business, expanding our tax base and job opportunities, and improving our infrastructure and school system. These accomplishments have created a noticeable improvement in the overall quality of life
for our citizens. The Warren County Comprehensive Plan is an important document which helps to guide the decision making process of our elected leaders and appointed staff. The County is mandated by the Code of Virginia to review the document every five years. This year, as part of our five-year plan review, the County is revisiting the vision of what we want our community to look like in the future. As part of this
visioning process, we are putting out a community survey to allow our citizens to comment on issues of quality of life, services, and facilities. We encourage citizens to take the time and complete the survey to ensure their voices are heard during this process. After all, it is imperative to know where we want to go as a community to make sure we get there.”

Your opinions and ideas are vitally important as the Board of Supervisors begins updating the Comprehensive Plan and building a vision for the future of our County. The results of the survey will be tabulated into a survey report, which will be available to the public on the County’s website, at the Government Center, and at Samuel’s Public Library.

Citizens interested in learning more about the County’s Comprehensive Plan update should contact County Planning Director Taryn Logan via e-mail at tlogan@warrencountyva.net or by phone at (540) 636-3354.
