A BLUEPRINT FOR THE FUTURE
The Countywide Plan is a comprehensive guide for future decision-making on a wide range of local and regional issues and services. The image below depicts a snapshot of the topics that addressed in the Countywide Plan. (* The Housing and Renewable Energy & Conservation Elements began in advance and independently of the Countywide Plan. These elements were incorporated at adoption.)
The Countywide Plan is scheduled to be developed over a period of approximately 3 years, followed by a 4th year of focused implementation and refinement.

A HISTORY OF CONNECTING WITH THE COMMUNITY
Your Input Matters!
A project of this magnitude required coordination and input from the people that would be affected by it most. No one knows the County better than you! As community experts, your local insights, observations, and ideas were valuable to us as we undertook various Countywide Plan tasks.
Between 2015 and 2020, the County made it a priority to engage with the public on a variety of projects such as the ones listed below. As a result of these combined efforts, over 5,000 people have shared their ideas with the County during meetings, workshops, and via surveys.
