Why update the Comprehensive Plan?
The Comprehensive Plan is used by citizens, developers, County staff, the Planning Commission, and the Board of Supervisors to develop and implement a course of growth for New Kent County. As much has changed in our community over the last 5 years, the update is necessary to assess new needs, develop solutions for new and long-term challenges, and to plan for new growth while enhancing our existing community. The Plan update will consist of current conditions, future trends, future land use plans, and researching and analyzing the County's goals, objectives, and implementation strategies.
