Indian River/Military Highway Corridor Study
The City has been hard at work developing a comprehensive planning and redevelopment strategy for the Indian River Planning Area. This Virginian Pilot article on Indian River published February 12, 2021 highlights some goals the residents have in this plan for their neighborhood. In the 15 minute plan overview video below, public involvement efforts held to date, review of the existing conditions analysis, and details on the plan recommendations will be covered. There will be additional opportunities for engagement during the public hearing process this spring.

The Indian River Planning Area Study will evaluate current conditions along the Indian River Road and Military Highway corridors, as well as in surrounding areas to create a strategic plan that will embrace the City’s Comprehensive Plan and its three cornerstones: responsible growth, infrastructure, and quality of life.
The plan will highlight the significance of both Indian River Road and Military Highway as important gateways that can help the City achieve its vision of being a place known for its well-connected communities and vibrant commercial areas. At the same time, the study will explore ways to enhance overall quality of life in the area and to accommodate a broad range of future mobility options.
This study will also support the City's adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan, which identifies the Indian River Road and North Military Highway corridors as a contiguous planning area needing further study. Examples of past planning studies can be found in the Planning Department's Planning Library.
