Comprehensive Plan Update for the Planning Commission Meeting on May 28, 2014:

The Planning Commission will discuss the latest draft of the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan at its meeting on May 28th. At this point, the draft plan includes the following sections:
Part I – Setting the Stage
Preface
Chapter 1 – Vision and Comprehensive Plan Overview
Chapter 2 – Fredericksburg: A Community Profile
Part II – Challenges and Opportunities
Chapter 3 – Transportation
Chapter 4 – Public Services, Public Facilities, and Preserved Open Space
Chapter 5 – Environmental Protection
Chapter 6 – Business Opportunities
Chapter 7 – Residential Neighborhoods
Chapter 8 – Downtown Fredericksburg and Historic Preservation
Chapter 9 – Institutional Partnerships
Chapter 10 – A Sustainable Community (outlined)

The Planning Commission has made clear that the draft 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. This latest draft of the Comp Plan is available for public comment on the Planning Department’s website and a public hearing will be held on June 11, 2014.
Work continues on the next section of the Plan, which is a detailed look at the current and proposed land uses within the City. When this draft section is completed, in July, it too will be posted for public review and comment. Please direct any questions to Senior Planner Erik Nelson at [email protected].

Comprehensive Plan Update for the Planning Commission Meeting on April 30, 2014:

Sections 1 and 2 (DRAFT) for the new comprehensive plan are submitted to the Planning Com-mission for their review. As noted previously, this document will remain a draft, to allow ongo-ing discussion and revision as the overall plan comes together.

Section 1 is a basic overview of current conditions within the City. It was developed with the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Weldon Cooper Center, and the Virginia Em-ployment Commission. The JumpStart! analysis from 2006 used this same type of information. At this point, though, the JumpStart! document is useful for its identification of the potential growth areas within the City, while this new Section 1 presents the most up to date economic data available.

This new Section 1 also shows how Fredericksburg has become part of the Northern Virginia Metropolitan Statistical Area. A substantial number of City residents find employment in and around Washington D.C. and this Comp Plan outlines the strong links this community has with Northern Virginia/Washington D.C.

Section 2 has been revised to reflect comments received from various Commission members as well as members of the public. This section will continue to be revised, so it stays consistent with the overall plan as additional sections are completed.

Section 3 will be forwarded to the Commission for its May 28 meeting. Sections 1, 2, and 3 will thus be part of the Commission’s public hearing in June. Section 4, the various land use plans, will be forwarded to the Commission in July, for public hearing in August.
