    Comprehensive Plan

    The Comprehensive Plan establishes a clear vision for the future of Lynchburg, identifies goals towards achieving that vision, creates policy guidance for public and private decision-makers, and identifies tasks that need to be pursued to make the Plan's vision and goals a reality. Building on the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan document, the following areas of the city have specific planning documents that have been adopted by the Lynchburg City Council as more detailed subsets of the Comprehensive Plan.
