Historically HIP Charles Town 2040 is the City of Charles Town’s new Comprehensive Plan developed under the authority of the West Virginia Code (§8A-3). The plan serves as the city’s official policy guide for short- (0-4 years), mid- (5-10 years), and long-term (11-20 years) decision making pertaining to future land use, growth and development, and resource preservation within the city’s existing political jurisdiction and its Urban Growth Boundary (UGB).
At the foundation of the Comprehensive Plan, Charles Town promotes a strategic Downtown First focus for all areas of economic and community development over the next 25-year horizon, recognizing the historical importance of the Downtown district. The plan identifies opportunities to leverage Charles Town’s historical urban fabric to improve livability and economic competitiveness for the city and the UGB.
