The Comprehensive Plan is the County’s master plan for guiding future growth as put forth by County citizens. It is reviewed every five years and is used to evaluate development proposals and guide the decisions of County departments over the next 20 years. It covers all aspects of the community, and the 2035 Comprehensive Plan review will focus on economic development, transportation and land use. The Plan update is scheduled to follow a 15-month timeline with a final version ready for consideration by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors in spring/summer of 2015.
