Comprehensive Plan

Moving Forward on the Citywide Plan

On October 31st, 2019, the City of Charlottesville contracted the services of Rhodeside and Harwell, Incorporated, to undertake the update of the Comprehensive Plan (including a Housing Strategy) and Zoning Ordinance Rewrite. This process – called Cville Plans Together – is being tracked on a project website, Cville Plans Together. The first phase of community engagement is happening in May and June 2020. A survey is open through June 27, and can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cville1.

There are three outcomes for this project:

  • An updated Comprehensive Plan, which will build on the 2017-2018 Planning Commission process to include updated information based on community input.
  • A Housing Affordability Strategic Plan, which will outline realistic strategies for reaching those goals, in order to increase housing affordability for all.
  • A zoning ordinance that reflects the updated community land use vision and addresses other needed updates (state requirements, consistency, etc.).
