Comprehensive Plan Community Workshops

The JCC Planning Division and CPT hosted three Comprehensive Plan Community Workshops. The Upper County workshop was held on June 9, 2014, and took place at Toano Middle School; the Central County workshop was held on June 10, 2014, and took place at King of Glory Lutheran Church; and, the Lower County workshop was held on June 11, 2014, and took place at Little Zion Baptist Church. At each workshop attendees were asked to provide input while participating in several different exercises. During a staff presentation, attendees were asked to respond to a variety of questions with a keypad polling exercise.  All keypad polling responses have been compiled into one document. 

Several multiple choice questions posed during the keypad polling gave participants an opportunity to provide responses other than the examples given. These responses have been compiled and broken down by location of the Community Workshop.

Community Workshop participants were asked to provide feedback on transportation with a map exercise. Participants were given dots to identify locations on a map according to the following criteria: traffic congestion concerns, locations ideal for multi-modal transit routes, locations ideal for multi-modal accommodations to include bike and/or pedestrian, areas with maintenance concerns and areas with safety concerns. The map is available, populated with the labels assigned by attendees. The dots are color-coded and numbered. In an effort to collect more detailed information regarding the locations cited on the map, participants were asked to elaborate on the chosen locations. The written responses are cross-referenced by number to the dots on the map. You can look at the map here and read the written responses here.

Community Workshop participants were asked to provide additional input on the topic of their choice. Those responses can be found here
