Current Draft Documents - Comprehensive Plan

Draft amendments are proposed to Comprehensive Plan Chapter 2 Land Use, 3 Transportation, and 3A Trailways Master Plan. Proposed amendments are chiefly aimed at ensuring Comprehensive Plan support for upcoming transportation funding candidate project applications, and to establish a transportation framework in the Thornburg and Lake Anna Mixed Use Commercial Heavy areas. The Thornburg and Lake Anna focus complements an adopted Comprehensive Plan Major Initiatives Action Item to develop special area plans for areas where unique development opportunities exist within the County. Additional amendments are proposed concerning extent of planned improvements along certain roads. 

Specifically, this update proposes to amend the 2021 Comprehensive Plan as last updated December 14, 2021, as follows: amend and re-ordain: Cover Page and Table of Contents; Chapter 2 Future Land Use, specifically the Table of Zoning Districts Complementary to Land-Use Designations Outside of the Primary Development Boundary; Chapter 3 Transportation, specifically the County-wide Thoroughfare Plan Map, Primary Development Boundary focus Thoroughfare Plan Map, Thoroughfare Plan Table, and to add Lake Anna area and Thornburg area transportation improvements maps; Sub-Chapter 3A, specifically the Road Based Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Map, Greenways Map, and Trailways Master Plan (complete network) Map.
