Comprehensive Plan

Overview of Plan


The Comprehensive Plan is required by state law to provide a framework to guide local leaders in decisions affecting community development within a jurisdiction’s boundaries.

The plan is intended to be a guide for both public and private decision-makers regarding the future of the City of Colonial Heights. The plan includes a variety of issues and subject matters, including an overall vision for the City’s future, and how that could be carried out. Specific sections on land use, transportation, public facilities, recreation & parks, housing/neighborhoods, economic development and natural resources are included in the plan.

The Comprehensive Plan for the City of Colonial Heights provides a basis for decision making by the City Council and Planning Commission, as well as the City Manager and his administration, in daily operations. The City Council recently adopted a new Comprehensive Plan in January 2015. The Plan can be viewed at the link below:
