Mecklenburg County, Virginia Comprehensive Plan 2035

Overview: Hill Studio developed an updated County Comprehensive Plan for this rural agricultural county containing five small towns and a large 50,000-acre reservoir and state park. The Plan focused on strategic planning for growth, adequate public infrastructure, regional economic development, and preservation of the small town environs and natural features and landscapes. A two-day public design workshop brought designers and planners together with citizens to develop plans for two special need areas: adaptive reuse of a historic high school and a regional equestrian center. The Plan included an implementation matrix with organized public policies, action strategies, timelines and potential partners.

Planning Process: Advisory committee, public meetings, design charrette, webpage, Facebook page, on-line survey.
