Public Notice: DRAFT FY 2022 HRPDC Work Program

The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) has produced the proposed FY 2022 Work Program (WP) for fiscal year 2022, July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. The WP describes planning work to be performed by the HRPDC staff during this period. The WP replaces the Work Program FY 2021 approved by the Commission at their October 15, 2021 meeting. This public notice is to request public review and comment on the proposed FY 2022 WP.

The Work Program includes projects to be undertaken for the Hampton Roads region as a whole as well as for sub-regional groupings of localities and agencies. Also included are local projects to be carried out in cooperation with or on behalf of individual member localities. The WP functions as a comprehensive guide to the activities of the HRPDC staff and supporting committees and represents the agreement between the HRPDC staff and the Commission on the functions and services to be accomplished on behalf of the Commission and its member localities. The WP is required by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), in part, as the basis for the state’s annual appropriation to support Planning District Commissions.

The planning activities in the WP address a wide range of programs, including: community affairs and civil rights, emergency management, environmental education, housing and human services, planning and economics and water resources. Each of these programs concurrently considers many related issues, such as land use, socioeconomic characteristics, transportation, climate change, environmental justice, and public involvement and outreach. To ensure the most effective service to the Hampton Roads community, many of the HRPDC functions, as well as those of the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), require integration and coordination of key issues such as recurrent flooding, hurricane evacuation, economic development and provision of utility and transportation infrastructure. HRPDC programs include:
