Long-range planning for the County is coordinated by Community Development staff and conducted in a collaborative process with many committees and other partners. Much of the effort is focused the County’s Comprehensive Plan, which sets out the vision and direction for the County until 2025. The Comprehensive Plan discusses such topics as:
- Natural resources
- Land use
- Hazard Mitigation
All of these planning issues are handled by the Community Development staff. The Plan is continually reviewed and updated with the assistance of the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).
The CAC provides recommended updates for the Planning Commission review, and final approval of the update comes from the Board of Supervisors.
