Long Range Planning
Comprehensive Plan
The City Council has adopted a Vision Statement that describes Fredericksburg as a city animated by a sense of unmatched, irreplaceable history, shaped by civic involvement and economic vitality. The Comprehensive Plan provides a blueprint for the community to achieve that vision - - addressing current conditions, visions and goals for the future, and strategies designed to achieve that future.

Small Area Plans

Market Analysis for Areas 3 & 6
This market analysis was developed as part of the City’s small area planning process. The intent is to understand how specific parts of Fredericksburg are viewed as places for commercial and residential investment. We know how we see ourselves. This study helps us to understand how others see us, which is important for developing realistic land use plans that will enhance what we like about our City and our neighborhoods and guide us in overcoming those things we do not like.

Pathways Plan
Bicycling and walking are fundamental means of travel and an efficient transportation network will provide for them. Integrated bicycle and pedestrian accommodations ensure safe and convenient access to the community, connectivity with the overall transportation network, and independent mobility regardless of age, physical constraints, or income.

Transportation Plan
The City of Fredericksburg has been a transportation hub from the day it was founded. The Rappahannock River, plank roads, railways, and state and federal highways have successfully linked the City with the broader economy. The Fredericksburg area, however, also has its own transportation network to provide balanced circulation patterns that enhance local commercial and residential development.
