Comprehensive Plan Update

The Code of Virginia requires local governments to update their comprehensive plan every five years. The New Market comprehensive plan establishes a framework for future development and decision-making that intends to make the Town of New Market a more desirable place to live, work, and visit.

Public involvement is essential to developing an effective comprehensive plan. Three events held earlier this year in conjunction with the July 4th celebration, Crossroads Fest, and National Night Out solicited citizen input regarding their likes, dislikes, concerns, and dreams for the New Market of today and tomorrow.

The proposed update to Chapters One through Four of the comprehensive plan can be viewed online (see below) or in-person at the Town Office during regular business hours. Town Planner Alex Berryman will be at Jackson’s Corner Café (9386 S Congress Street) from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on November 29, 2017 to answer questions and receive input. A public hearing is scheduled for December 4, 2017 at 7:00 pm regarding the adoption of the update to Chapters One through Four (see below).

Please contact Alex Berryman in-person at the Town Office, by phone: 540-740-3432, or by email: for any additional information.
