The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) has embarked on an effort to develop Hampton Roads’ first Community-based Regional Strategic Plan entitled, ENVISION Hampton Roads. The newly redesigned Four-step ENVISION Hampton Roads process includes:
Identifying Regional Values & Establishing Vision Principles;
Formulating Actions around each Vision Principle;
Identifying Funding & Prioritizing Actions; and
Implementing & Monitoring Results.
This innovative approach to planning, will serve as a useful tool in bridging the gap between local government and the citizens in the region. It will also give the residents of Hampton Roads an opportunity to be engaged in the planning process for their areas, and help promote dialogue, discussion and cohesive action for the future of Hampton Roads. ENVISION Hampton Roads will implement citizen and community engagement with the use of interviews, mapping exercises, surveys and other outreach activities. This information will be used to present different community scenarios based on the information gathered. The goal of ENVISION Hampton Roads is to engage residents to participate in the establishment of a shared Regional Vision that creates a resilient Hampton Roads and a blueprint for the region’s future, ultimately leading to Hampton Roads being a great place to live, work, play, learn, and visit.
