We pre-recorded today’s conversation in person at the Shenandoah County Government Center to chat with Lemuel Hancock, Director of Community Development and Tyler Hinkle, the county planner to talk about planning for the 2045 comprehensive plan.

The two explained what the comprehensive plan is, why it’s necessary and what goes into creating, updating and implementing the 20-year plan.

We talked about the importance of community input and what that looks like in Shenandoah County in the form of community surveys, district information sessions as well as community collaboration sessions.

This will be an ongoing conversation in the coming months as we learn about the different chapters of the plan and talk about the progress that’s been made on previous plans.
