Comprehensive Plan Background & History
When the Comprehensive Plan was undergoing review for proposed revision in the late-2000's, the County Commissioners obtained state funding to assist the process, which allowed them to form neighborhood groups made up of citizens from the various areas of the County.
The groups met for one to two years and submitted their recommendations to the Planning Director.
The BOCC opted not to use any of them in the final plan that was approved in December 2014.
