The Comprehensive Plan presents a vision of Harrisonburg’s future. It identifies steps to move toward that vision by providing information about current conditions, long-term goals and objectives, and recommended implementation strategies. As described in the Code of Virginia, comprehensive plans are general in nature. Harrisonburg's Plan addresses a wide range of issues including but not limited to: land use, housing, education, transportation, recreation, the preservation of historic and natural resources, and economic development. The plan serves as a long-term guide for the community, and it helps City and community leaders with setting policies and decision-making.
The draft chapters and more information about the workshops are available at https://www.harrisonburgva.gov/yourplan.
Community members are asked to review the draft chapters and provide comments on chapter background and goal, objective, and strategy statements associated with each chapter.
