Prince William County Parks and Recreation Community Needs Assessment Forum, Saturday, January 26, 10-11:30 AM, at McCoart Building

Community Needs Assessment Forum

Hosted by Prince William County Parks & Recreation

Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 10 AM – 11:30 AM

Prince William County Government Center,
1 County Complex Ct, Woodbridge, Virginia 22192

Part of a broader Parks & Recreation community needs assessment, this forum is an opportunity for residents to help shape the future of Prince William County’s recreational and facility offerings. Input from this facilitated discussion will be used to update the County’s Comprehensive Plan, which will inform the next 10 years of park development.

“Prince William County operates 55 developed parks and facilities, spanning more than 4,000 acres, that provide playgrounds, trails, marinas, fitness centers, skate parks, sports fields, and many other amenities, ” says Seth Hendler-Voss, the County’s Director of Parks, Recreation & Tourism. “As we plan for the future, it is critical we understand how well we are meeting our residents’ needs for both passive and active recreation opportunities today, and develop a full grasp of the needs of tomorrow. “

“Parks are central to positioning Prince William County as a vibrant community of choice where families choose to live and businesses choose to locate,” added Hendler-Voss.

Content derived from http://manassascity.org/2431/Comprehensive-Plan-Update

Using an 18-month process, the City of Manassas will update its Comprehensive Plan–the City’s key policy document for land use, development, preservation and related economic and social issues.  As part of that update, the City will also develop its first Transportation Master Plan to guide future transportation investments and improve mobility in the City.  This is an exciting time for City residents as the Manassas community envisions its future!

Citizen input in updating the Comprehensive Plan is vital to a more livable Manassas.  Throughout the summer and fall, the City will host a second round of Community Conversations on key topic areas, like land use and transportation.  These conversations began on June 19th with a visioning session on land use.  Additional meetings are scheduled throughout the summer and fall.  City Staff will also be available to meet with neighborhood and community organizations to gather feedback. Please contact 703-257-8223 for more information about hosting a meeting.

Regional Transportation Planning Board Seeks Public Input for Its Updated Plan

News Release: TPB seeks public participation in upcoming transportation forums

Apr 10, 2018

NCR-TPB’s Regional Activity Center Map

View interactive map of the seven transportation initiatives

The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) is seeking public input for Visualize 2045, a new long-range transportation plan for the National Capital Region. The input will help elected leaders and regional planners better understand public attitudes and opinion as they make decisions about the region’s transportation future.

Visualize 2045 includes transportation projects for which funding is expected to be available between now and 2045, as well as those for which funding has not yet been identified.

A series of public forums have been scheduled to discuss seven unfunded initiatives recently endorsed by the TPB that have the potential to significantly improve transportation in the region. The TPB will gather feedback at the forums that will help decision makers better understand the universe of needs and potential projects and how they can affect the region’s transportation future.

These unfunded initiatives include: bring jobs and housing closer together; expand bus rapid transit regionwide; move more people on Metrorail; increase telecommuting and other options for commuting; expand express highway network; improve walk and bike access to transit; and complete the National Capital Trail.

The TPB will be holding nine forums in the following locations across the region:

Frederick County – Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | 7:00-9:00 P.M. | Thomas Johnson H.S.
Prince George’s County – Wednesday, April 18, 2018 | 7:00-9:00 P.M.  | College Park Airport
