Giles County Comprehensive Plan Update

The Comprehensive Plan update for Giles County is underway. Over the past few months the Giles County Planning Commission has reviewed the Economic Development, Future Land Use, Natural and Historic Reosurces, Housing, Tourism and Recreation, and Government Administration section. Some of the key priorities that came out of these meetings are as follows:

  • Preserve and enhance the quality of life of county citizens
  • Encourage economic development in desired areas
  • Continue to promote Giles County as a tourism destination as an economic strategy
  • Pursue partnerships to create opportunities for local youth
  • Provide adequate protection to envrionmentally sensitive areas
  • Ensure protection and preservation of natural and historic resources
  • Strenghten partnerships and increase coordination with federal, state, regional and local entities

Giles County Staff and New River Valley Regional Commission (NRVRC) staff are planning to wrap up this project within the next two to three months.
