Board of Supervisors Community Development Committee to consider Chapter 4 of proposed Comp Plan Wednesday
Among the topics to be discussed by the Board of Supervisors’ Community Development Committee on Wednesday, March 14 will be the proposed "Active Living and Healthy Neighborhoods" section of the 2017-2037 Comprehensive Plan. The Board voted to adopt the plan last month, but decided to refer the proposed Chapter 4 – “Active Living and Healthy Neighborhoods” – to the Board’s Community Development Committee for further consideration. “Active Living and Healthy Neighborhoods” was a new component of the Plan that developed from recommendations made by the Board’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Connectivity Engagement Committee. As explained by Planning Director David Maloney, it is meant to encourage amenities such as walking trails and bike paths where they are feasible, without being mandatory. The Community Development Committee has the assignment of determining “the appropriate routes and paths needed to guide effective implementation.” The March 14 meeting will be held in the Emergency Communications Training Room in the E911 Center at Hanover Courthouse The meeting begins at 1 p.m.
