The Planning Office continues to update the Prince William County Comprehensive Plan. Currently, Planning staff is working with consultants from Nelson/Nygard and Rhodeside & Harwell, various County agencies and the public to update the Land Use, Housing and Mobility chapters of the Comprehensive Plan.
The Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the long-range growth, redevelopment and preservation of the County. It articulates the goals and policies that the Board of County Supervisors relies on to make informed land use development decisions and investments in public infrastructure. The Comprehensive Plan also serves as a reflection of community values and a vision of expressing what residents and businesses believe is needed to create a great quality of place, quality of community and quality of life.
Prince William County is the product of many past plans, each a reflection of the goals and visions of its era. The Board of County Supervisors first adopted a Comprehensive Plan in 1974. New plans or updates to an existing plan were adopted by the Board in 1982, 1986, 1989, 1990, 1998, 2003 and 2008.
The influence of these plans is seen all around us. They affect the way we live and work, the way we travel, and the design of our communities. This is why citizen involvement is important as staff begins to work on updates to the Land Use, Housing and Mobility chapters of the Comprehensive Plan.
