Rockingham County is revising and updating its Comprehensive Plan!
The Comprehensive Plan is a community-driven document that sets a vision and goals for the future of Rockingham County over the next 10 to 20 years.
The Comprehensive Plan addresses topics such as land use, development, economic growth, transportation, and natural and cultural resources in the unincorporated areas of Rockingham County. The policies defined in the plan will guide the County’s future direction and priorities for growth, services, and land use regulation.
Process Updating the Comprehensive Plan will be a collaborative effort between Rockingham County’s Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, residents, business owners, and other stakeholders. Community information will be gathered and updated, and new priorities, goals, and strategies will be established based on input from community members. The Comprehensive Plan relies on public input, so we encourage the people of Rockingham County to be an active part of this process by participating in the public workshops and online survey!
