Long-Range Planning Work Program

Since 2012, the Planning and Zoning Division has prepared a Long-Range Planning Work Program 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 community awareness about current long-range planning projects.

Community members and organizations were invited to submit ideas for projects to consider for the 2021-23 Long-Range Planning Work Program from October-December 2020. After gathering input from the Planning Commission on January 11, 2021, staff held a public meeting with the Planning Commission March 8, 2021 for to discuss and make a recommendation to the BCC. The plan recommended by the Planning Commission was approved by the Board of Commissioners on April 27, 2021.

The 2019-21 Long-Range Planning Work Program was structured around the need to update the Comprehensive Plan in four major areas: Housing, Transportation, Economics, and Natural Resources and Energy.
