**2018 Comprehensive Plan Update**
Over the next year Charlottesville will be undertaking an update to the City's Comprehensive Plan. This Plan is our vision as a community that guides decision making processes for such matters as Land Use (development and growth), Housing (affordability and access) and Transportation (all modes of transit and parking).
Questions? Comments? Want more information? Contact Neighborhood Development Services (434-970-3182).
In the spring and summer of 2017 a series of workshops and outreach events were held to gather feedback from the community on how updates to the Comprehensive Plan should be shaped. Over the last eight months that information has been analyzed and used to create DRAFT materials such as chapter changes and a DRAFT Land Use Map. Now the community is invited to attend workshops in May to review this material and provide additional feedback. (Each workshop will contain the same format and materials so pick the one that works best for your schedule.)
