What is a comprehensive plan?

A comprehensive plan is the outlining of a 10-year strategic vision. Through research, evaluation, and, most importantly, community input, it sets goals and objectives for county growth and acts as a blueprint for county governments, as well as their public and private partners, to address opportunities and to build upon existing community assets. The comprehensive planning process creates a unique opportunity for public involvement and collaboration to promote growth that is consistent with the diverse needs and desires of the community. 

What is included in a comprehensive plan?

A comprehensive plan addresses a range of land use, growth management, and preservation topics. As part of these topics, the plan outlines goals for meeting housing needs, expanding access to community facilities and utilities, such as schools, libraries, sewer and water systems, etc., and protecting the many natural and historic assets of the county among other important factors.
