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. This innovative approach to planning will give the residents of Hampton Roads the right to set the course for their community’s future. Envision Hampton Roads will use interviews, mapping exercises, surveys and other means to hear from residents and use that information to present different community scenarios based on the information gathered. This process will allow residents to react to the scenarios and choose the future that best matches their vision. The goal of Envision Hampton Roads is to engage residents to participate in the establishment of a shared Regional Vision that ultimately creates a blueprint for the Region’s future that leads to Hampton Roads being a great place to live, work, play, learn, and visit.
The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission staff and stakeholders will be conducting a series of listening sessions throughout the region in the next several weeks. The sessions are designed to seek input about our community values and will be the launch of a regional strategic planning process.
If you or your group would like to be a part of a listening session, contact Jai McBride at 420-8300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
