Warrenton’s Comprehensive Plan
What do you think makes Warrenton what it is? What are our strongest community assets? What challenges concern you the most, and how should we face them as a community? What specific goals should we set for the next 20 years?
In short, what is YOUR vision for Warrenton 2035 and beyond?
The City of Warrenton has started the process to create a new Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan). The Comprehensive Plan makes basic policy choices and provides a flexible framework for adapting to real conditions over time. The initial building blocks of the Comp Plan will include “frameworks” such as land use, character, transportation, neighborhoods, parks and trails, infrastructure, and implementation.
