Cumberland County, VA

Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan Overview

The Cumberland County, VA Comprehensive Plan update is currently underway, and it needs YOUR input!

The Comprehensive Plan is a guiding document that envisions what the future of a community looks like and outlines the steps it takes to get there.  Comprehensive plans address land use, transportation, economic development, the environment, public facilities and infrastructure, the character of the built environment, parks and open space, and more.  Cumberland’s Comprehensive Plan is important because it will guide decision-making to ensure that future development is in line with the plan. It helps the County prioritize the allocation of limited resources, inform where new land uses should go, which areas of the county should change, and which should stay the same. It’s also an opportunity for many different stakeholders to come together and plan for the future of Cumberland.

The public input process will begin in January 2023, and will continue throughout the planning process, targeted for completion in December. Opportunities to provide input and be involved will be posted on this website, so please bookmark it and visit often!

We hope to hear from you soon!
