The Town of Warrenton’s Comprehensive Plan serves as the guiding document for future decisions regarding development, preservation, public facilities, and other key components of community life. The plan seeks to provide a clear vision to help steer the Town while also meeting the state regulations that require local planning. Virginia Code §15.2-2223 requires local planning commissions to "prepare and recommend a comprehensive plan for the physical development of the territory within its jurisdiction.
It is Time to Update of the Town of Warrenton’s Comprehensive Plan!
In 2016 the Town of Warrenton began updating its Comprehensive Plan. This is an exciting time to be part of the Warrenton community as we come together to envision the next twenty five years. To begin the conversation, it is important to assess what is important to us - all of us. As such, the Town is committed to reaching out in new ways to seek the thoughts of the community. And it begins with our children.
The Student Postcard Project
This spring the Town invited students to participate in the Postcard Project. During March - April of 2016 over 1,000 students from C. M. Bradley Elementary, James G. Brumfield Elementary School, Warrenton Middle School, Fauquier High School, Saint James' Episcopal School, and Highland School participated by expressing what they value in our community today and what they would like to see for our future in 2040. Their submissions, from the youngest 5 year old to the graduating senior, enlightens all of us to what makes our Town special and the dreams they hold for it. Please view a sampling of the submissions here*:
