Botetourt County Shares Envision 2040 Survey Results

Envision 2040

In the Spring of 2022, Botetourt County sought input from the community to update our comprehensive plan.  Envision Botetourt 2040 is the most important document for guiding future land development, growth, and policy in the county.  The Comprehensive Plan sets goals for a variety of planning areas, including transportation, economic development, housing, and future land use, forming the building blocks for enhanced quality of life. 

The plan’s content and success depend on engagement with the community, County staff and elected officials.  Put simply, this is your plan, and we wanted the community to be involved. We asked for public input with five surveys:


    Community Facilities



    Future Land Use

We received over 1,000 responses and your results are in! Find out more by visiting our website at and clicking the Envision 2040 tab.  Once you are there choose the story map for a detailed summary. 

Over the next few months, Botetourt County staff will be working on drafting the plan and will continue to present chapters of the plan in public meetings to the Planning Commission.  Public hearings will also be advertised and held before any action is taken by either the Planning Commission or Botetourt County Board of Supervisors.  Sign up to know when these meetings are taking place by visiting:
