The Gen H Comprehensive Plan will be Hendersonville’s strategy for how growth and development are managed over the next 20+ years. The plan will be used as a tool for prioritizing resources and future planning efforts. City Council can also use the Gen H Plan as a guide for budgeting, strategic planning, and making policy decisions. To learn more about the comprehensive plan, please visit
