REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENT
INITIAL DRAFT – 2015 BERRYVILLE AREA PLAN
The Berryville Area Development Authority is undertaking a review and update of the Berryville Area Plan – the joint comprehensive plan managed cooperatively by the Town of Berryville and Clarke County for the development of designated annexation areas in and around Berryville. The current Plan was initially adopted in 1992 by the Town and County and was last amended in 2010.
The Berryville Area Plan provides a vision for how the Berryville annexation area should grow in the future. The Plan is long-range and forward-looking, addressing a wide range of issues and questions relating to land use, community facilities, infrastructure, preservation, community character, and economic development among other topics.
A Public Comment Session on the Initial Draft of the 2015 Berryville Area Plan will be held from 5:00PM-7:30PM on Wednesday, October 28 in the Berryville-Clarke County Government Center, Main Meeting Room (2nd Floor). Representatives from the Town and County Planning Departments and the Berryville Area Development Authority will be available to answer questions and to receive comments on the Initial Draft. A brief presentation by Staff will be held at 7:00PM that evening.
Comments on the Initial Draft must be received by close of business on Monday, November 9, 2015. All comments received will be considered by the Berryville Area Development Authority in creating a Final Draft Plan for public review, formal public hearings, and possible adoption later this year.
Copies of the current and Initial Drafts of the Berryville Area Plan may be downloaded from either the County website – www.clarkecounty.gov – or the Town website – www.berryvilleva.gov.
