Herndon Town Council OKs Changes to Comprehensive Plan

The Herndon Town Council formally adopted changes to its comprehensive plan.

At a Tuesday (Jan. 28) meeting, the council approved changes recommended by the town’s planning commission and staff.

The updated plan incorporates a new chapter on economic development and clarifies that the plan should be reconsidered up to 2024, by which time downtown Herndon is expected to be built out.

Other changes include:

  • Pursuing a cooperative relationship with the county and regional entities for public infrastructure
  • Continued assessment of indoor and outdoor recreational facilities
  • Advancing pedestrian and multimodal facilities, including Van Buren Street improvements, trail lighting along the Washington & Old Dominion Trail
  • Ensuring residents with a half-mile from a park have access by all forms of transportation
  • Replace “heritage” with “historic” when referring to heritage preservation efforts.

Virginia’s code requires the review of comprehensive plans at least once every five years.
