Comprehensive Plan Update

Our Facebook Poll has closed and the votes are in, your comprehensive plan will be titled Envisioning the Isle. Thank you to our naming contest winner Leigh Abbott of Smithfield and everyone who suggested a name and took the time to vote. 

This website is intended to serve as the source for all the information you may need related to the Isle of Wight County Comprehensive Plan Update. Whether you want to view the current plan, learn about what a Comprehensive Plan is, view upcoming opportunities to provide your input, take our current survey, or get in touch with us about the plan and process you can do it here. Our goal is to provide you the information you need to make informed decisions as you provide your input during the development of the plan.

We plan to keep the site updated with new information as we move through the process. We will also be using the County social media accounts to put out updated information as well. Please like the County Facebook Page or Follow the County Twitter for updates. We also have both linked to this page for easy access and information.
