PURCELLVILLE, Va. November 10, 2016 — Everyone interested in the future of Purcellville is invited to log on to PlanPurcellville.com and complete the Focusing on the Details survey to help determine the final content of the updated comprehensive plan. This survey, found at http://PlanPurcellville.com/Get-Involved/Focusing-On-The-Details/, asks the public to answer specific questions covering five topics: (1) Community Character & Design, (2) Economic Development, (3) Parks, Recreation & the Environment, (4) Public Services & Infrastructure, and (5) Land Use. The survey will be available for public input until November 30th.
Earlier rounds of public input have revealed a number of general desires for the Town’s future, and on November 5th, over 30 residents participated in lively small group discussions delving in to the details of how these desires should be addressed in the comprehensive plan. The Focusing on the Details survey now poses the questions presented at the workshops to the entire community. “This survey is designed to help us determine how to define the parameters of the public’s desires and how best to achieve them,” said Senior Planner Daniel Galindo. “What do our residents specifically want to see? How do we balance competing desires? The public’s survey responses will provide important guidance on how the comprehensive plan answers these questions, so we’re hoping to hear from as many people as possible before the survey closes on November 30th.”
The Focusing on the Details survey is the last component of the fifth and final round of public engagement for the comprehensive plan update. This survey will be the public’s final opportunity to provide input on the future of our community before an updated comprehensive plan is drafted at the end of the year. Once the updated comprehensive plan is drafted, citizens will have an opportunity to provide additional comments while the document is considered by both the Planning Commission and Town Council.
