What is a Comprehensive Plan?
The State of West Virginia has established Comprehensive Planning as a requirement for communities that engage in land-use regulations (zoning) but there are other reasons for the City to have a regularly updated Comprehensive Plan, as provided in §8A-3-1(b) of the West Virginia State Code:
(b) A comprehensive plan is a process through which citizen participation and thorough analysis are used to develop a set of strategies that establish as clearly and practically as possible the best and most appropriate future development of the area under the jurisdiction of the planning commission. A comprehensive plan aids the planning commission in designing and recommending to the governing body ordinances that result in preserving and enhancing the unique quality of life and culture in that community and in adapting to future changes of use of an economic, physical or social nature. A comprehensive plan guides the planning commission in the performance of its duties to help achieve sound planning.
As a part of this process, a multiple-location series of three progressive community meetings will be held. These meetings are planned to begin in early-spring and continue trough mid-summer. We will be evaluating city land-use, mobility, housing, green spaces, downtown development, infrastructure, parks and recreation, municipal services, and our natural resources. Throughout this process we will work together to address these and other concerns:
- What Makes Our Neighborhoods Great and Where Are We Struggling?
- What Will Make Our Neighborhoods Better?
- What Can We Do Now?
This page will collect information from the Comprehensive Planning process. If you require additional assistance, please contact the Economic Development Department at (304) 624-1681.
