Land Use Tools Update
Town of Farmville
The Berkley Group completed an update of all the Town of Farmville’s Land Use Tools - Comprehensive Plan, Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Ordinance, and Zoning Map. The Town of Farmville is a small, but vibrant community located in the heart of Virginia. Home to two universities, multiple cultural and recreational destinations, and a charming downtown - Farmville has many of the assets necessary to support economic development and resiliency. Like many small towns, the community struggles with job growth and retention. The challenge of the comprehensive plan was to promote future development that creates a more prosperous and resilient community while continuing to align with the Town’s vision and goals. The Comprehensive Plan update was closely coordinated with a zoning and subdivision ordinance update. The project included a diagnostic of the existing ordinances to determine compliance with the Code of Virginia, examining land use definitions, and modernizing and streamlining the ordinance while maintaining compatibility with community values and Comprehensive Plan goals.
