Comprehensive Plan
2015 Comprehensive Plan

On September 8, 2015 the City Council approved the 2015 Comprehensive Plan for the City. 

The Comprehensive Plan is a key document in setting public policy.  The Plan is the principle guide when important land use, transportation, public service, and community facility decisions are made. It is one of the most important public policy guides in Fredericksburg, and should reflect the views of a broad cross-section of Fredericksburg citizens. The Plan reflects discussions and comments by members of the Planning Commission, the City Council, and the many citizens who attended various community meetings.
The 2015 Plan articulates the direction for future strategic actions:
 - what we want to achieve (goals),
 - what is most important (policies), and
 - what we are going to do to achieve that (initiatives).

The 2015 Plan begins by restating the future vision of the City. On July 11, 2017, the City Council adopted a new 20-year vision statement, highlighting its goals for the city to:
 - be an employment epicenter,
 - have effective public services,
 - have distinct and linked neighborhoods
 - be a place where learning is a way of life,
 - be a leader in historic preservation,
 - build community through cultural vibrancy,
 - have a green and clean environment, and
 - implement cutting-edge transportation solutions.

The Comprehensive Plan is being updated through the Small Area Plan Process.
