Comprehensive Plan 2007-2027

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Comprehensive Plan consists of formal goals, objectives, and policies which will guide the land use decision-making of county officials during the next 20 years. The Plan will be reviewed at least every five years and modified or updated as deemed appropriate by the Board of Supervisors. The Comprehensive Plan is not a law or ordinance. It is a guide for land use decision making. It establishes the long term goals which the county seeks to achieve, and it establishes the policy guidelines for when, where, and how to provide public facilities, change zoning designations, and otherwise facilitate, coordinate, and regulate development. Some of the Plan’s policies are implemented upon adoption of the Plan. Other policies are not implemented directly by the Plan, but rather will be implemented through future changes to the county’s development regulations after adoption of the Plan. Finally, this Plan includes a capital improvements plan to provide baseline estimates of the cost for implementing the Plan. Comprehensive Plan full cover
