Comp Plan 2040 logo Imagine VB Navigating Our Future

The Comprehensive Plan guides development and investment across the city, and all capital improvement and land development projects are evaluated for consistency with the plan.

The revision currently underway will reflect a shared vision for the future and is organized according to “Themes,” “Place Types” and “Big Ideas.” Once the plan is complete, the City will translate Themes and Big Ideas into specific strategies designed to make the plan’s vision for the future a reality. 

Please help us Imagine VB.


Themes were born out of discussions with residents about their values and priorities for the community – such as balanced growth and environmental sustainability.
