Pantops Home Adopted Pantops Master Plan 2018-2019 Pantops Master Plan Update Pantops Community Advisory Committee


The Pantops Master Plan was approved by the Board of Supervisors on March 17, 2008.  The approval followed the Board's March 17, 2008 Pantops Master Plan worksession, which addressed several issues raised during the September 12, 2007, Board of Supervisors Public Hearing for the Pantops Master Plan.  

Like all Albemarle County master planning efforts, the Pantops Master Plan incorporates the principles of the Neighborhood Model and provides a set of Guiding Principles to distinguish Pantops from other development areas of the County. It provides a framework for transportation, land use, design guidelines, and public infrastructure. Public participation has been critical to the development of the draft plan, with residents, property owners, and other stakeholders working with county staff and consultants to develop the five guiding principles which capture what is most important for a high quality of life in Pantops. These principles include respect for natural, historical, and scenic assets, especially the Rivanna River system, new development that fits with existing character, housing choices, improving pedestrian systems, addressing transportation issues, and providing adequate community facilities and services.
