Please note this change of process for 2021:
The Planning Office
is updating the Land Use chapter of the Comprehensive Plan. During the review of all long-range land use designations countywide, Comprehensive Plan Amendment applications will be accepted including those associated with residential-only land if submitted by May 12, 2021.
This window of opportunity will allow staff to evaluate each project for consideration in the Land Use updates of the Comprehensive Plan. All applications submitted before May 12, 2021 will be considered for initiation concurrently with the Comprehensive Plan Update.
As the update to the Land Use chapter progresses, there will be several opportunities for the public to provide feedback, comments, and/or recommendations as part of the community input process. Opportunities for the community input process will be posted as they are scheduled on the Planning Office website
as well as being announced using the PWC Alerts notification system
Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process
CPA applications are submitted to the Planning Office for staff review. The Planning Office staff will prepare an analysis and recommendation for consideration by the Planning Commission at a public hearing. The Planning Commission is a standing committee appointed by the Board of County Supervisors to advise the Board on land-use issues. At a subsequent public hearing, the Board will consider the case and the Commissioners' recommendation, and either approve or deny the application. The Board action is final.
It is recommended that prior to submitting a CPA application, a prospective applicant call the Planning Office at 703-792-7615 to schedule a pre-application meeting with a planner. This allows for the early identification of possible issues regarding the property and the potential application. It also introduces the applicant to the review process.
If the CPA will have a concurrent rezoning application, the CPA should be initiated before the rezoning application is heard by the Planning Commission.
