Top 3’s show recurring citizen concerns around Hanover’s growth

Over 4000 comments were submitted in Phase #1 Public Engagement for the current Comp Plan review and update process.

Envision Hanover released the latest information April 18, featuring two “Top 3” categories.

The Top 3 critical issues Hanover is currently facing:

  • Loss of farmlands, forests and open space
  • Traffic congestion
  • Lack of walking and biking options

The Top 3 biggest concerns as Hanover County grows:

  • Increased traffic/congestion
  • Loss of farmlands, forests and open space
  • Too much development

Citizens have cited these same issues repeatedly for the last three Comp Plan updates and now a fourth. Is the County listening to the citizen stakeholders? 

Let your Supervisors, Planning Commissioners and County officials hear from you.
