Albemarle County is planning for an equitable and resilient future. One of the main ways we plan for this future is through periodic updates to the Comprehensive Plan.

About The Comprehensive Plan Update and a Recap of Phase One

The Comprehensive Plan (or 'Comp Plan'), is a guiding document for growth, development, and investment in the county. The Plan includes recommendations for how and where the county should grow and serves as a guide to support local businesses and industry, protect and enhance natural resources, provide transportation options for walking, biking, taking transit, and driving, and allow and encourage a variety of housing types.

The Comprehensive Plan is used to guide decisions on public infrastructure and funding, plans, and programs, and review of some development applications. We are updating the Plan because it is required by the state and it's a way to respond to the changing needs of our community.

During Phase One we learned that there are a wide variety of perspectives on how to accommodate a growing community. We listened at community events, reflected on questionnaires, and ultimately created the Framework for an Equitable and Resilient Community which will serve as a guide to Phase Two and Three work.

We hope you'll join us during Phase Two of the project! Please consider joining us at our events and sharing this information with friends and neighbors.
