About this Planning Process

Alleghany County and the City of Covington leveraged their resources and worked collaboratively to update their Comprehensive Plans, last adopted in 2013, by having a joint planning process. A joint steering committee met throughout the process to develop the vision, goals, and objectives for the County and the City. The outcome produced a separate plan each for Alleghany County and the City of Covington with a shared vision, goals and objectives - only the strategies were specific by jurisdiction. This will help ensure that both the County and the City grow in a coordinated way.
