Citizens Advisory Committee

ATTENTION! Take the Shenandoah 2045: A Future Together Survey Here! Help shape a better tomorrow together!

Citizens Advisory Committee
The Citizens Advisory Committee on the Comprehensive Plan (CAC) was chartered by the Board of Supervisors in January of 2006 with its mission being to review the Comprehensive Plan and propose updates and revisions to the Plan as needed by state law. Its founding was based on this document: Commission On The Future – November 1998
The Committee functions as a volunteer subcommittee under the Planning Commission, and its valuable efforts save the County thousands each year in work that would otherwise be performed by contracted consultants and additional staff, or would be forgone to the detriment of our community.

Annual Report:
Annually, the CAC provides an annual report to the Planning Commission on how the actions of the previous calendar year upheld the Comprehensive Plan. Links for annual reports are in the upper left of this webpage.

Comprehensive Plan:
Currently the CAC is drafting a new Comprehensive Plan, called Shenandoah 2045: A Future Together. The survey for the 2045 Plan can be accessed here. Citizens are invited to attend the monthly public meetings where the topics are discussed. The Comprehensive Plan contains information on the existing conditions and growth trends in the County, and makes policy recommendations for its general development, in accordance with the purpose set forth in the Code of Virginia. Download the full 2025 Plan here.

Citizen-Led Research:

In preparing the next Comprehensive Plan, members of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee and Shenandoah County staff are working with local citizens to improve local access to knowledge about the past, present, and potential future. As more research is performed, additional materials will be published on the Citizen-Led Research Library. You can submit addition materials to be published to County Planner, Tyler Hinkle, at THinkle@shenandoahcountyva.us.

Meetings:
CAC Meetings are open to the public and are usually held on the 4th Wednesday monthly in the Board Conference Room. Upcoming meetings are listed below.

The Comprehensive Plan is everyone’s plan, and we want YOU to have a seat at the table as we work with you to Plan for a better tomorrow.
