Visual Preference Survey

The visual preference survey allows citizens and other stakeholders to provide their opinions regarding the design of future neighborhoods, employment areas, and development within Hanover County. The results of this survey will be used to help develop a vision for future development within the County, which will help to establish and articulate community expectations. The vision will assist the community, staff, Planning Commission, and Board of Supervisors in evaluating new development proposals to ensure that vision is incorporated into the design of new development.


The survey will close on Friday, May 13, 2022 (5:00 p.m.).


Your representatives on the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission are happy to hear from you about this process. Find your representatives' contact info at the links below.

Landowner Request to Change Future Land Use Designation

As part of the Envision Hanover planning process, the General Land Use Plan may be modified based upon community input, changes since adoption of the 2017 Comprehensive Plan, land use projections, and other considerations. Applications are currently being accepted from landowners interested in requesting specific changes to land use designations applicable to their properties. Applications are due Friday, June 17, 2022 (5:00 p.m.) to the Planning Department.


We need your help to ensure that Envision Hanover is built on a foundation of citizen involvement. Sign up for project updates below.
