Shenandoah County wants your input on what this county should look like in 20 years
The Shenandoah County Comprehensive Plan is up for revision, and just like the Town asked for feedback on its Comprehensive Plan, the County wants feedback from residents, especially in how the County cooperates and operates with the Town of Toms Brook.
In order to reach all parts of the county, there is a citizens’ advisory board. The representative for this area is Rochelle Dornatt of Toms Brook.
The County formed a committee called the Citizens Advisory Committee on the Comprehensive Plan, chartered by the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors in January of 2006 with its mission being to review the Shenandoah County Comprehensive Plan and propose updates and revisions to the plan as needed. The committee functions as a volunteer subcommittee under the Shenandoah County Planning Commission.
The CAC will hold community meetings throughout the county to educate the public about the existing comp plan and then to gather input from residents about what they'd like the county to be in 20 years.  Right now, the first of these meetings is tentatively planned for Toms Brook on September 30th at the fire hall.
Another way residents can have a voice in the process is to visit this link and complete the simple survey:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeSx1nh8TWgrX97QEP2NbSFAjYGMHCkMXaTBPGNJJTM9_Y2mA/viewform.
Let the county hear from you. Participate in the county’s comprehensive plan process.
