About the Plan
A comprehensive plan can be thought of as a “road map” that is used to help create a more desirable future and improve the quality of life for the people that live and work in the community. Based on public input, a comprehensive plan establishes a collective vision for the future of the community and sets goals and objectives to help achieve that vision.
Comprehensive plans help maintain community character and steer growth by informing and guiding future decisions about land use. The plan is not a set of specific rules or regulations, but serves as a reference point when the County considers individual projects, programs, or policies in the future.
Participation in the planning process is the best way to make sure your concerns and priorities are heard and reflected in the plan.
