Comprehensive Plan Update


The goal of the third public engagement process is to gain feedback to develop a preferred growth scenario to include in the draft comprehensive plan. The scenarios presented in this round were created from the most common themes and issues noted in the first two rounds of public input.

The last of the 10 public forums took place on October 3. However, you still have time to take the online survey until October 12!

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.

Development of the Comprehensive Plan is estimated to take 18 to 24 months but may take longer as your input guides our process, we will try to adhere to the timeline as follows:
