Introduction

This survey is an opportunity for residents and neighbors of Lexington to share their thoughts and opinions on the future growth and development of the City. Your feedback will be used by the City’s staff and Planning Commission as we work to update the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

The Comprehensive Plan is Lexington's most important document regarding growth, development, and change. It establishes government policy to help guide public and private activities as they relate to land use and resource utilization. The Comprehensive Plan is the basis for land development regulations and decisions (rezonings, conditional use permits), capital improvements (schools, parks, libraries), transportation, environmental and historic resource protection initiatives. All Virginia cities and counties are required to adopt a Comprehensive Plan, and to review the plan for necessary updates every five years.
