Long-Range Planning Work Program

Since 2012, the Planning and Zoning Division has prepared a Long-Range Planning Work Program for the Board of County Commissioners as a tool to prioritize and consolidate amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning & Development Ordinance (ZDO). Public involvement with the work program allows for the integration of projects important to the community, as well as increased awareness on the scope of current long-range planning projects.

Current Work Program

The 2019-21 Long-Range Planning Work Program is a multi-year plan of major projects, structured around the need to update the Comprehensive Plan in four major areas: Housing, Transportation, Economics, and Natural Resources and Energy. The plan projects were chosen after seeking suggestions from the public, county departments and other jurisdictions, reviewed by the Planning Commission and approved by the Board of County Commissioners.
