Hanover Comprehensive Plan to be updated

During its January 25th meeting, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors authorized the Planning Commission to commence an update of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The last update was 2007. The vote followed a presentation [ppt] by Acting Director of Planning David Maloney and a workshop discussion among Board members.

Localities are mandated both to have a Comprehensive Plan and to review it every five years. Hanover’s Comprehensive Plan is a rolling 20-year plan advanced at each update. With this review and update the guidelines are set for the 2012-2032 time frame.

The Planning Commission will schedule workshops and hearings that will unfold over approximately one year until the final public hearing and vote by the Board of Supervisors.
