Understanding the Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code Update process
This planning process will start with a Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) looking at all facets of the community, including but not limited to: managing growth; land use and development patterns; major infrastructure and facilities planning; attraction of commercial development (including development and redevelopment downtown); resource allocation (including looking at recommendations to maximize water supply); transportation; park and open space management; and regional coordination.
The Land Use Code will serve as the regulatory tool to implement the principles and policies identified in the Comprehensive Plan. Once finalized, the two components of this planning effort will enable the Town’s governing bodies in their decision-making, to move policy and development forward in a purposeful and productive way.
