Planning Commission

Every local government in Virginia is required to have a Planning Commission “in order to promote the orderly development of the locality and its environs” (Code of Virginia, Section 15.2-2210). The Purcellville Planning Commission is a seven-member body of Town residents that are appointed by the Town Council to advise the Council on matters relating to Town planning and development. The Commission also develops and recommends updates to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, which outlines the Town’s vision for its future and strategies for attaining that future. The Commission also reviews and makes recommendations on updates to the Town’s zoning and development related regulations that help to implement the Comprehensive Plan.
