Existing Community Plans Get a New Look!

The Countywide Plan process touches upon many facets of the County’s operations, including governance tools such as Community Plans.  Historically, Community Plans have guided the future use, character and distinctive identity of a community and outlined how the County should manage future growth.

As part of the Countywide Plan preparation, we have taken a fresh look at the purpose and functionality of these documents and have enhanced them by adding new content that also makes them more action-oriented.

In doing so, the new content will refine the way the current community plans are organized.  Although the plans will have a somewhat new look, communities with existing plans can be assured that pertinent information from the existing plans will be carried forward into the new plan, shaped by the input received during community workshops over the past several months.

The new organization of the Community Plan documents is intended provide the County and community with more effective tools for future decision making.  We have created a graphic to illustrate how the new community plans will look in comparison to the existing plans.

To see if your community has an existing plan that will be updated, or to see if a new community plan will be created for your area, click here.

Countywide Connection Newsletter

The very first issue of the Countywide Connection has been released! Newsletters will be prepared periodically over the next few years so that we can provide you updates with project progress and highlights at key milestones in the process.

The focus of this newsletter is community outreach. As you know, over the past year we have been out in the community gathering ideas, input, and recommendations to be considered as we prepare the Countywide Plan. The newsletter explains the process, provides excerpts of input we’ve received so far, identifies upcoming outreach efforts, and provides an overview of the schedule of next steps in the Countywide Plan process.

Future newsletters may include topics such as: how we grow, how we get around, how to improve County services, and how to create a more effective County government.

We encourage you to take a look at what we’ve done so far, and to share this newsletter with friends, family and colleagues so that they can keep up with the process, too! Click the image below to read the full newsletter.
