With population growth comes the increased demand for services and public facilities. The County is, and will continue to be, challenged to maintain and meet the demands for:

  • effective networks of roads and transportation systems
  • quality public services including water and sewer, police  and fire protection, and refuse collection and disposal
  • model educational facilities
  • environmental integrity and scenic beauty
  • healthy and diverse economic bases
  • affordable choices in housing type and density
  • recreational facilities and activities
  • sustainable development and growth
